American basketball player Breanna Stewart is happily engaged to her long-time girlfriend, Marta Xargay. But long before her lesbian partnership, she was reportedly in a relationship with former NBA player JayVaughn Pinkston.

Know her dating history!

Was Linked With Pinkston Circa 2014

Stewart was romantically linked with Villanova Wildcats' forward player JayVaughn Pinkston circa 2014.

The dating rumors of the pair intensified after they attended the game between the Washington Mystics and the New York Liberty in August 2014. Many news outlets reported them to be girlfriend and boyfriend.

The pair, however, commented nothing on their relationship and let the matter subside.

Got Engaged To Girlfriend in 2021

Though Stewart's relationship rumors with Pinkston didn't materialize, she soon surprised her followers with her relationship with female basketball player Marta Xargay. 

The pair went Instagram official by sharing pictures of each other. The first-ever picture of them together was posted by Xargay on August 11, 2019, though it hinted nothing of their brewing romance. 

But slowly and steadily, the duo clarified their bond with adorable pictures, heartfelt birthday wishes, and love emojis.

In May 2021, Stewart took a step further in their relationship and planned to propose to her girlfriend. For that, she made Xargay hike alongside her and her other friend in Papago Park, Phoenix. 

Her girlfriend wasn't much thrilled about the hike, as it was too hot in the daytime. But she went anyway. In the middle of the walk, the WNBA superstar surprised her partner by getting down on one knee with an engagement ring.

The moments of the sweet proposal and the acceptance were later shared on both their Instagram. Stewart shared the pictures on May 3, 2021, and announced that her girlfriend said "YES.''

Likewise, the Phoenix Mercury also penned a lovely caption while sharing the same pictures. She wrote, "Life isn’t just about the moments, it’s about who we share them with!" A hashtag that accompanied both their posts was "wifey."

After the announcement, Stewart's fiancée talked about the special day with azcentral. She shared that the day turned out to be good, although she didn't want to go first. 

You know Phoenix is super hot so I was just like I don't want to be outside. She planned the whole day, telling me let's go for a walk, do something, take pictures. I was like OK, let's do it. In the end, it turned out to be a really good day.

The pair's friends Sue Bird, Candice Dupree, Sami Whitcomb, and team Seattle Storm were among many to congratulate them and give their best wishes.
