What a pair — and what a pear! LeBron James proposed to longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson on New Year’s Eve, and over the weekend, the lucky lady flashed her brand-new bling: a pear-shaped diamond flanked by two glimmering baguettes.

James — whose salary will top $16 million this season — popped the question during a celebratory dinner at SL nightclub at the Shelborne hotel in South Beach. The couple’s children, LeBron Jr., 7, and Bryce, 4, were on hand to celebrate with mom and dad, too.

“It was so sweet to watch,” a rep for Remy Martin V, who hosted the dinner, tells PEOPLE. “Everyone is extremely happy.”

The party, co-hosted by Heat teammate Dwyane Wade and his girlfriend Gabrielle Union, was also a belated birthday celebration for James, who turned 27 the day before. Heat star Chris Bosh (who tied the knot lavishly in July) and Queen Latifah were also on the guest list of 60 friends and family members.

“A person like myself always needs a great sidekick and a person you can rely on no matter the circumstances. And she’s that,” James told Harper’s Bazaar of Brinson in 2010. “She’s got my back, and I love her for that.”

I hope they’ll have decades of wedded bliss and hopefully she won’t be a hateful “divorced baby mama”. Of course, most “jump offs” aren’t really interested in your man until he’s married.

Watch out, girl, the haters are circling…

Why Dee? Because YOU say so??? Don’t worry about it if you’re not feeding their kids.

@ Meems: Why? Because American culture and Americans are dying a slow and painful death, literally and figuaratively, because of all of the out-of-wedlock births and nonparenting out there, particularly in the African American community. There’s much, much more to raising happy, healthy, socially adjusted and contributing kids than just feeding them and giving their moms bling.

Love the ring. Hope it won’t turn into another Kris/Kim situation.
