PHOENIX (AP/WVLT) -- Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner has proposed to the Tulsa Shock's Glory Johnson and posted it on social media.

Griner showed a photo of her on one knee with a ring in her hand in front of Johnson on her Instagram account.

In the post, Griner wrote: "Last Night was a Night to Remember(,) I became the happiest person on this earth! (almost pass out but when that one word came out I came back to life) Me and my baby (at)missvol25 are in it for Life!"

Johnson also had a photo on her Instagram account of Griner lying in bed with an engagement ring resting on her shoulder.
