Several gossip reports confirm that NBA superstar Kevin Durant proposed to longtime girlfriend Monica Wright on July 6 - and the WNBA b-baller said yes! MediaTakeOut has an exclusive, first-look photo of Wright's flashy engagement ring. Read on for more details - congrats to the happy couple!
According to the popular webloid MTO, Durant and Wright have been dating for months... and now they're ready to tie the knot! Apparently the Oklahoma City Thunder baller popped the big question on Saturday evening (July 6). Check out a photo of Wright's eye-catching engagement ring bling here.
As Mstars previously reported back on May 27:
The Memphis Grizzlies recently defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder, kicking one of NBA's top teams out of the 2013 playoffs. But it looks like 24-year-old b-baller Kevin Durant isn't too upset... considering he allegedly has a new leading lady to fall back on! According to MediaTakeOut.com and several other gossip outlets, the popular basketball star is currently dating WNBA sweetheart Monica Wright of the Minnesota Lynx. Durant was recently spotted sitting courtside at several of Wright's games, and during a locker room interview with the 24-year-old San Antonio native, she totally brightened up once Durant's name was mentioned! Do readers think they make a cute couple?
According to insiders, Wright is the perfect match for Durant because she's a "real chick." One source tells MTO, "She's not one of those celebs that's with Kevin for money or fame, she loves him and will hold him down through good times and bad."
Apparently the two are going strong, and they're totally "in love" - both on and off the court.
Jocks and Stiletto Jill claims that Wright recently said this about her budding relationship with Durant: "A lot of it has to do with basketball, that's how we've known each other. But he's helped me, coached me. He's actually a type of player I want to be like."
Check out an exclusive WNBA interview with Wright here.
Wright's even gone "public" with her supposed new beau on Instagram:
Their relationship isn't "official," but insiders insist that their budding romance definitely isn't a secret either.
Well now it looks like the relationship is indeed official - congrats to Durant and Wright on the future marriage!
