Apparently, the pair — both 24 years old — have been friends since high school. But the situation got hot and heavy a few months ago when the two basketball elites hooked up and eventually elevated their relationship from friends to fiancé status.

Wright, a member of the Minnesota Lynx and an All-Rookie selection in 2010, has been photographed showing off her large diamond engagement ring.

Meanwhile, Durant has been evasive when asked about the relationship. Apparently, he likes to keep his private life private. Of all the nerve!

For the record, KD is under contract with OKC through the 2015-16 season. Let’s hope he doesn’t get an itch to become a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

When it comes to the possibility of kids, we can only imagine that colleges already are working on their pitches. Talk about having the right genes.

Here’s wishing the young couple much happiness in their pending union.
