The lucky man is Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade. He posted the same photo on Instagram with a different caption, though.

He wrote, "She said YES!!!"

The couple have been dating since 2009, and they have been hinting at a possible engagement. According to the Associated Press, their holiday cards were sent from the "Wade-Union Family."

The ring is a stunning 8.5-carat, cushion-cut diamond ring custom designed by Jason of Beverly Hills. TMZ is reporting that the ring is worth nearly $1 million and that the jeweler made three trips to Miami so the NBA player could find the perfect stone for his bride-to be.
