Here’s another up-close look at Earl’s engagement ring:
Westbrook and Earl met at UCLA. Here’s what Russ had to say about Nina in a 2013 interview with ESPN:
“But she’s a smart girl. She’s in school right now, trying to get her master’s in psychology. She knows what she wants to do in life, which is great. That’s easy for me to cope with.”
Clearly he found a keeper.
