L.A. Lakers star Nick Young, 30, and rap superstar Iggy Azalea, 24, are engaged just days after the basketball pro was quoted as saying “of course I want to marry Iggy.”
It appears the subject was definitely on his mind as Young a.k.a Swaggy P made his 30th birthday party all about the love of his life when he turned all attention on her by getting down on one knee and proposing in the middle of the bash. Young presented Azalea with a massive and gorgeous yellow diamond ring asking “Will you marry me?” to which she of course said “yes.”
Luckily, the entire moment was filmed and shared on Twitter which is fitting for the couple whose year and a half relationship all began by Young tweeting at Iggy calling her his “#womancrushwednesday” and hitting on her until she finally reciprocated.
“It was a beautiful celebration for Nick with only his close friends and family. Nick completely surprised Iggy with the proposal. She was shocked and so excited and emotional at the same time,” a friend told E! News.
“Nick has known for a long time Iggy was the one for him, but he was just waiting on the perfect time to pop the question. They both have gotten very close these past few months and he can’t think of anyone else to spend his life with but her. One of the most important things about Iggy is the way she is to his son.”
Azalea then took to her own Instagram to show off a picture of her insane ring with the caption, “Happiest Day #isaidyes” as well as two more with Young while also showing off the ring.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
