De Paula, 28, is a Brazilian model who had been dating Embiid, 29, since 2018. The two welcomed a son (Arthur) in Sept. 2020.
Here are some photos on social media of the couple together.
It is obviously a big time in the life of Embiid, who averaged a career-best 33.1 points per game last season and is now about to start a new four-year, $213 million max contract extension with the 76ers. Now Embiid becomes the latest NBA superstar to hear wedding bells this offseason.
