Sorry, gents and Drake! WNBA superstar Skylar Diggins announced her engagement on Monday, June 20, and many of her devoted fans reacted dramatically to the news on Twitter.
As previously reported, the Dallas Wings player, 25, is set to marry her longtime boyfriend, former Notre Dame football player, Daniel Smith. The couple got engaged in a Dallas art gallery on June 12, and announced the news via social media on Monday.
Joining the pair for the proposal was professional photographer Gavin Lueking, who captured the moment Smith dropped down on one knee.
