Brighter than an NBA scoreboard! Los Angeles Lakers player Julius Randle proposed to his girlfriend, Kendra Shaw, on Monday, June 20, during a romantic getaway in Santorini, Greece.

The NBA power forward, 21, presented Shaw with a gigantic engagement ring, which she couldn’t resist from sharing on Instagram.

“Was trying to wait to post it but I can’t contain my excitement!!!!” Shaw wrote, alongside a photo of her mega rock and manicured fingers. “6/20/16 the best night of my entire life. I couldn’t have painted a better picture. Words can’t describe the way I’m feeling and how I felt in that moment. You are the best thing that’s ever happened to me and I can’t wait to spend forever with you❤️❤️❤️ I love you juju @juliusrandle30 thank you for making me the happiest girl in the world!!!

Randle also surprised his lady by whisking her off to the gorgeous Mediterranean destination. “#bestsurpriseever #thanksbae,” she wrote alongside a video of herself giggling and panning the camera past Randle in their infinity pool. 

The ring, a massive square-cut center stone surrounded by a halo of diamonds, was created by jeweler Jason Arasheben (Jason of Beverly Hills). The piece also includes a diamond-encrusted band.

“You are the best thing that’s ever happened to me and I can’t wait to spend forever with you,” Shaw gushed about her new fiance as she showed off her beautiful engagement ring in front of the perfect ocean backdrop, “I love you juju @juliusrandle30 thank you for making me the happiest girl in the world!!! Thanks @jasonofbh and Julius for making the perfect ring.”
