Hoop there it is! Firstborn to NBA superstar Michael Jordan, Jeffrey Jordan proposed to his girlfriend Radina Aneva during a tropical trip to Hawaii in November with a major sparkler.

Radina, who works for 20th Century Fox, posted a mesmerizing video to her Instagram and Twitter accounts of her ring with the caption, “I said YES! ❤️💍💎 #engaged I love you!! @heirjordan13.”

And how beautiful is that bauble? From the looks of it, Jeffrey Jordan chose a gorgeous (and gigantic!) round-cut diamond surrounded by a square halo of pavé stones, all sitting on what appears to be a rose gold band. Basically, it's the MVP of engagement rings. Great job, Jordan!

News of the engagement only recently surfaced because the bride's social media accounts are private. But on New Year’s Day, Jordan posted a photo to his Instagram of his fiancée holding a wedding planning book—and wearing that megawatt rock!

“Turning the page... 😘👑❤️ 🍾🥂 #happynewyear2018,” the former college basketball player wrote in the caption. Could you think of a better way to start off 2018?

According to People, Aneva posted a similar photo with this heartfelt caption: “Thankful for all the growth, life lessons, success and love I experienced this year. Looking forward to planning the future and starting a family with my best friend. ❤️”

It seems like the newly engaged couple took the final weeks of 2017 to enjoy their engagement in private, before publicly announcing the news and diving head first into wedding planning in the new year. It's a surprise they were able to contain their excitement, especially with a ring like that.

Seriously, look at that thing! That's what you call a slam dunk.

Congratulations to this happy couple!
