62507: NBA Star Yao Ming Engaged

An eight-year romance has led to a proposal of marriage for Houston Rockets center Yao Ming and Ye Li, also a star on the basketball court as a member of China’s women’s team. While an official announcement of the date and wedding venue are forthcoming, early reports indicate an August walk down the aisle for the couple, with the Chinese city of Shanghai, the prospective groom’s birthplace, as a possible location for the nuptials. The lovebirds, whose relationship first garnered attention at the 2004 Athens Olympics, are currently making plans for a low-key wedding ceremony.
