Shumpert has yet to take to social media with the happy news, but the Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard posted a heartfelt tribute to his fiancee last week.

“As we grow together you've taught me more about myself than I ever knew,” he captioned a black-and-white Instagram pic of the pair. “You have changed my life forever. You have made a house a home. You have carried the next generation. And you have proven to me that love is real and genuine.”

I've never held a woman on a pedestal quite like this before. I've never appreciated everything about a person so much. As we grow together you've taught me more about myself than I ever knew. You have changed my life forever. You have made a house a home. You have carried the next generation. And you have proven to me that love is real and genuine. I know you can't drink while you're pregnant...and you'll probably pass out after dinner and not make it to the club lol. But I'm screaming HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you while you're in Chicago! You need anything while you're there you know I got you...that's kind of my neck of the woods. 👀 Smile on your special day sweetheart...you make every woman want to wear 25 just like you! 💂🏾😍🐞
