A day after turning 27 years old, LeBron James threw a birthday party where he also proposed to longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson. As soon as Savannah said yes, the congratulations started coming in.
“Happy for my brother @KingJames and sis @SavannahRB on their engagement!!! Extremely happy for them and the good times to come,” Clippers point guard Chris Paul tweeted.
Heat team owner Micky Arison added his congratulations, tweeting “Congrats to Lebron. @KingJames and Savannah so happy 4 u guys.”
Even Carmelo Anthony’s wife, LaLa Vasquez, chimed in via Twitter: “CONGRATS are in order!! 2012 has already come in w/a BANG!! Congrats to @KingJames and @SavannahRB on their engagement!! We love u guys!!”
James and Brinson have been dating since high school. The couple has two boys together — LeBron Jr., who is seven, and Bryce, who is four.
Please spare all the jokes about this being the only way for James to get a ring — we already heard all of them when Tony Romo got married.
The party itself looked like a lot of fun. Devine Delicacies made his birthday cake in half a day and it looked spectacular:
