LeBron James' Sweet Proposal to Savannah Brinson Was a Long Time Coming

lebron james savannah brinsonWow, 2012 is going to be another big year for sports weddings (surely, they'll go better than last year's biggest). First basketball legend Michael Jordan proposed to sexy model Yvette Prieto, and now it has been confirmed that Miami Heat superstar LeBron James and Savannah Brinson, his longtime girlfriend (they're high school sweethearts!!!) and mom to his two boys, are finally going to tie the knot.

So how did James pop the question and what took him so darn long?


James' proposal to Brinson sounds super romantic and sweet. The fun took place at a private New Year's Eve party for LeBron's 27th birthday party with a guest list that included Queen Latifah, Jessica White, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade. Right after midnight, James surprised Brinson by dropping to his knee and proposing. Awwww!

Of the surprise, James said:

It should be a surprise for any woman ... She was surprised. It was great that all the friends and family were there to bring in a new year. Even my kids were happy about it, so that's good. ... I feel good. I feel good. It's a good point in my life right now.

He also added:

My girl, she's very excited ... she's happy, my family's happy and that's what it's about.

Of course, the couple's boys, 7-year-old LeBron James Jr. and 4-year-old Bryce Maximus James, are on Cloud 9 about the news. What kid wouldn't be? A party guest says LeBron picked his sons up and swung them around immediately following the proposal. Oh my gosh, so sweet!!!

No wedding date has been announced, but the couple has had YEARS to consider their wedding guest list, so hopefully it won't be long! Speaking of, what's the deal with all those years, LeBron? What took you so long, King James?

Who knows why James was so slow on the proposal draw -- they've been going out since high school and he graduated way back in 2003 and the couple had LeBron James Jr. in 2004! Sounds like they had discussed marriage in the past, but she wasn't expecting the proposal on NYE. Maybe it was the early basketball fame followed by a busy family life already underway. No matter now, we wish the happy family all the best!

Do you wonder what took LeBron James so long to propose to Savannah Brinson?
