I will be honest, I thought Derrick Rose and Alaina Anderson were already married. They have been together for years and have a couple of kids together, but now Rose has made it official, and he did it in style.
He went straight out of the Drake playbook and renting out Madison Square Garden (I am sure they didn’t charge him since he plays there), and that is where he popped the question.
Here is how Anderson reacted.
“Just got engaged in MSG nothing major!” Anderson said on IG. “A WIFE!!!! I love you!!!! 😍😍😍 MRS ROSE TO YALL LOL”
The ring is quite massive, but when you love someone and are a multimillionaire, you can splurge a bit on an engagement ring.
Check out the poem that Rose wrote for Anderson while proposing.
To My Ace:
I didn’t know things were going to go this way.
Even from the jump, I didn’t know I was texting Big Jay.
I didn’t know how you were going to perceive me.
But this entire time, I was hoping that you would believe me.
Believe the words that I will have your back and love you forever.
When I FIRST saw you, I told Ryan that we were gon be together.
It took both of us a while to let down our guards.
That’s only because both of our hearts were scarred.
We are two peas in a pod because we are truly MISUNDERSTOOD.
We got our heart and swag from this place called ENGLEWOOD.
I will always love you because you go above and beyond
We built a beautiful family and an unbreakable bond. Thank you, Queen.
Who knew that D Rose was good with the pen like that. This is on some Romeo and Juliet vibe but without the suicides and whatnot (people really don’t know that story doesn’t have a happy ending).
