The basketball star, 26, popped the question to three-time Grand Slam champ Sharapova, 23, on Tuesday in his Manhattan Beach, Calif. home, according to Yahoo!'s tennis blog.

The couple first stepped out together last November at a U2 concert in Los Angeles. Russia-born Sharapova joined her beau at IMG Academy in Florida over the summer and in Italy for a romantic vacation.

Back in August, Slovenia-born Vujacic said they've "helped each other" in their respective sports. "As two pro athletes -- in different sports -- we both understand what the other is doing and going through, and what it takes to do well in what we do," he told NBA Fan House. "She's working hard. I'm working hard. It's good together.''
