A "Congratulations!" is in order for Maria Sharapova and her now fiance Sasha Vujacic.
The L.A. Laker guard proposed to Shrieka this past Tuesday and apparently gave the 3-time Grand Slammer a hefty engagement ring. The news was first reported by gossip site TMZ and confirmed by CNBC's Darren Rovell. The pair have been dating for about a year.
So the next obvious question (at least for me) is: Who will be designing Shrieka's wedding dress?!
I'm readying my rice. Just in case.
UPDATE: Sasha gave up a few details on how they're feeling about the engagement and how it all went down. Via SI:
"We are engaged and are both really happy," Vujacic said Thursday night before the Lakers' exhibition game against Golden State. "It's good and now we can focus on other things."
The agent for three-time Grand Slam champion Sharapova confirmed the news in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
Vujacic said he proposed on the one-year anniversary of their first meeting at a friend's barbecue.
"It's was probably old school," Vujacic said. "I had to do it like a gentlemen."
Vujacic said a wedding date hasn't been set.
