Could another baller wedding be on the horizon? The Associated Press reports that OKC player Kevin Durant is engaged to Minnesota Lynx player Monica Wright. Rumors spread earlier this year that the two had been spending time together, but we had no idea their relationship had progressed to a serious level.
Just four days ago (July 4), the rumored bride-to-be tweeted a bible verse about marriage, alluding to the surprising news.
“As a young man marries a young woman so will your Builder marry you as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride so will your God rejoice over u,” she shared.
Their union is also being labeled as a case of art imitating life since Monica Wright is also the name of Sanaa Lathan’s character in Love and Basketball—who also happens to wear number 22. Director Gina Prince Bythewood reached out to the WNBA player on Twitter to thank her for her unintentional tribute to the beloved film.
As of today, neither Durant or Wright have made a public statement about their “engagement.”
