WNBA star Breanna Stewart just passed the rock to her lifelong teammate.
The former league MVP announced on Sunday that she was engaged to his girlfriend Marta Xargay, a Spanish basketball pro.
Photos of Stewart kneeling bent presenting the ring accompanied the Instagram caption: “I did one thing. Another ring. She said yes.”
Stewart was referring to the two championship rings she won in the WNBA with the Seattle Storm, including last season. (She was also the final MVP for the second time.)
Xargay, who is on the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury preseason roster after a previous stint with the team, wrote on his Insta: “Life isn’t about moments, it’s about knowing with who we share them!
I said yes.”
Both were teammates of the 2018-19 Dynamo Kursk squad.
Stewart missed the 2019 WNBA season with a ruptured Achilles tendon, but the former UConn rebounded powerfully on the pitch. She will likely also represent the U.S. women’s team at the Tokyo Summer Olympics.
Looks like she’s winning off the pitch as well.
The Storm tweeted their congratulations with their own ringtone mention.
