Elena Delle Donne, the WNBA MVP who’s headed to this year’s Olympics in Rio, has gotten engaged!

According to the the August issue of Vogue, Elena and Amanda Clifton — with whom Elena played basketball in college and who has previously been referenced only as a friend — are engaged. Furthermore, the Vogue piece is the first known public discussion of Elena being queer, so congratulations are in order for that as well!

“Elena divides her time between traveling with her team, the Chicago Sky, and her family’s home in the rolling green landscape of Wilmington, Delaware,” the Vogue piece states, “She and her fiancee, Amanda Clifton, keep apartments in both Chicago and Wilmington.”

Pride.com reports that Elena was the number 2 WNBA Draft pick in 2013, and the number one placement was taken by Brittney Griner, who is an out lesbian and also part of Team USA in the Olympics this year.

Elena was featured in ESPN’s 2016 Body Issue, where she discussed living with chronic Lyme disease, her family, and how she stays so successful on the court.
