Seattle Storm forward and reigning WNBA Finals MVP Breanna Stewart announced her engagement to Phoenix Mercury guard Marta Xargay in a social media post Sunday.

“Did a thing. Another ring. She said YES,” Stewart captioned photos of the proposal that she shared on Instagram.


Stewart, a two-time WNBA champion, was regular-season and WNBA Finals MVP in 2018 and Finals MVP last year.

Xargay, 30, is from Spain and previously played for the Mercury in 2015 and 2016. She is currently on Phoenix’s preseason roster.

Stewart, 26, is also coming off being named MVP for the EuroLeague and the Russian League, winning championships in both last month with UMMC Ekaterinburg.

A four-time NCAA champion at UConn, Stewart is entering her fifth season in the WNBA. She missed 2019 with an Achilles tendon injury.
