For LeBron James and Savannah Brinson-James, things might not be at the happily ever after point just yet, but they are very close to that.

LeBron was a high school basketball superstar at the private Catholic school, St. Savannah says she had no idea who LeBron was when she met him at a football game. At her school, Savannah was a softball player and a cheerleader. When LeBron spotted her, he knew he had to get to know her. A mutual friend helped LeBron get his phone number to Savannah and when she finally called him out of boredom , he invited her to attend one of his basketball games.
At the game, she was surprised to see how truly skilled LeBron was. During his high school career, LeBron was praised as one of the greatest high school basketball players in America. The two bonded over their athletic abilities and life motivations. After a few phone calls, they had their official first date. The budding couple had dinner at the local Outback Steakhouse. After taking her home, LeBron realized Savannah left her leftovers in his car.
So, like a good gentleman, LeBron went back to her house to deliver the leftovers. Savannah describes this as the moment she knew LeBron loved her. I think he just wanted another excuse to come and see me. Either way, their relationship started really heating up after the first date and they soon became inseparable.
Just a couple of years after they started dating, LeBron was drafted into the NBA in , as the first overall pick. Terrified, Savannah had no idea what to tell her parents and what LeBron would do since his career was just starting. Getting rid of the child was never an option for her, and people around town started saying she got herself pregnant on purpose to trap, rising star, LeBron into the relationship forever.
That was definitely not her intentions, though, because who wants to be five-months pregnant at their senior prom? Through a couple of pregnancies and a lot of drama, they stuck together, though. Before he proposed to her, it was always a question of when is it going to happen?
But there was never really any doubt that one day he would marry Savannah Brinson. Of course, she said yes. LeBron knew it was at last time to make Savannah his bride.
