Brook Lopez and his longtime girlfriend, Hailee Strickland, are about to enter a whole new world: marriage.

Earlier this week, the Milwaukee Bucks center popped the question at Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., where he got down on one knee at the Animal Kingdom theme park.

Lopez, whose passion for the House of Mouse has long been documented, proposed in front of the Animal Kingdom’s famed Tree of Life, exactly 13 years after the couple first crossed paths at the park, according to ESPN.

In the sweet engagement snaps, the 34-year-old Lopez can be seen presenting a ring to Strickland, who later paired her white dress with a pair of bridal-inspired Minnie Mouse ears.

It’s been a wild year for Lopez, who claimed his first NBA title in 2021 with the Bucks. The seven-foot athlete — nicknamed “Splash Mountain,” a famous Disney Parks attraction — has been part of the Milwaukee organization since 2018 following previous stops with the Lakers and Nets.

Lopez’s twin brother Robin is also in the NBA and signed with the Cavaliers last month.
