Paul George celebrated his recent engagement by taking a swipe at himself.
On Thursday, the Los Angeles Clippers forward — who got engaged to girlfriend Daniela Rajic earlier this month — posted a birthday tribute to his future wife, 30, noting she’s got more hardware than he does.
“Take this walk with me to our 30s where we’ll find love for life! Happy bday my love @danielarajic. S–t just got REAL lol love you,” George captioned the Instagram snap, along with the hashtag, “She got a ring first.”
George, 30, and the Clippers were in contention for an NBA championship this season but fell to the Denver Nuggets during the Western Conference semifinals. George previously played for the Indiana Pacers and the Oklahoma City Thunder before being traded to Los Angeles.
Rajic, who shares two young daughters with George, also thanked the six-time NBA All-Star for making this birthday her “best birthday yet.”
“I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you and celebrate many more!” she gushed on Instagram.
George proposed to Rajic against a scenic backdrop with an estimated 3-carat ring, according to WP Diamonds CEO Andrew Brown.
“This ring looks to be a high color 3-carat radiant-cut diamond with a large round halo,” Brown told Page Six Style on Wednesday, noting its retail value is “likely around $50,000-$55,000.”
Prior to his relationship with Rajic, George dated Callie Rivers, the daughter of former Clippers coach Doc Rivers. She’s now married to Seth Curry, the younger brother of Warriors superstar Steph Curry.
