Natisha Hiedeman and Jasmine Thomas, teammates with the Connecticut Sun, got engaged to marry this week.
From the photos on Instagram, it seems Hiedeman proposed to Thomas, getting on one knee to pop the question. For her part, Thomas was all in:
“So, let’s talk about last night…. I said ABSOLUTELY!! I’m so excited for forever with the love of my life! @t5poon you make me happier than I ever knew I could be. I’m grateful for you and beyond lucky that you’re mine, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!”
The couple has not been shy about sharing their love for one another, particularly recently.
The Connecticut Sun are sitting atop the WNBA standings and are slated to be the top seed in the playoffs, which start Sept. 23. The team is coached by Curt Miller, the only publicly out gay man coaching in American professional sports.
