Stewart, the reigning WNBA Finals MVP, shared out the special announcement in a post on Twitter with this caption: “Did a thing. Another ring. She said YES.”
Xargay, a Spanish basketball pro, is expected to suit up for the Phoenix Mercury on Saturday when the Storm comes to town for a preseason game. She confirmed the celebratory news on her Instagram page.
