Austin Rivers Engaged to Brittany Hotard

Outside of mangling Blake Griffin’s knee (accidentally, of course), it’s been a solid start to the holidays for Clippers guard Austin Rivers. He’s played decent ball during the team’s three-game winning streak, and he announced last week that he popped the question to longtime girlfriend Brittany Hotard.

Austin captioned:

Crazy how time flies……remember when we first starting dating all the way back in 10th grade. It’s been nearly ten years since than. We have had our fair share of trials, obstacles, and problems as a couple….mostly my fault lol! But u being one of the strongest woman I know stood by my side, and here we are today….stronger than ever! So glad to now call you my fiancée! Look forward to loving you unconditionally and providing the best life I can for you and our family as your husband! Love you B!

Brittany attended both the University of Central Florida and University of New Orleans and graduated with a marketing degree. She’s the founder and owner of BrittyCakes in Florida.

Unfortunately it looks like she deleted her IG and locked down her Twitter, which makes sense given that the Internet trolls Austin on a daily basis.
