Brook Lopez and his longtime girlfriend, Hailee Strickland, are about to enter a complete new world: marriage.
Earlier this week, the Milwaukee Bucks middle popped the query at Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., the place he acquired down on one knee on the Animal Kingdom theme park.
Lopez, whose ardour for the Home of Mouse has long been documented, proposed in entrance of the Animal Kingdom’s famed Tree of Life, precisely 13 years after the couple first crossed paths on the park, according to ESPN.
Within the candy engagement snaps, the 34-year-old Lopez will be seen presenting a hoop to Strickland, who later paired her white gown with a pair of bridal-inspired Minnie Mouse ears.
It’s been a wild 12 months for Lopez, who claimed his first NBA title in 2021 with the Bucks. The seven-foot athlete — nicknamed “Splash Mountain,” a well-known Disney Parks attraction — has been a part of the Milwaukee group since 2018 following earlier stops with the Lakers and Nets.
Lopez’s twin brother Robin can be in the NBA and signed with the Cavaliers final month.
