Jusuf Nurkic is officially off the market!

With the Trail Blazers out of playoff contention this season, the Bosnian Beast had some business off the court to take care of.

While celebrating his longtime girlfriend Emina Duric’s birthday recently, Nurkic got down on one knee and popped the question. She said YES!

“Happy Birthday huh??” he said in a post on Instagram. “You are the happiness that covers my scars. The best of you are those who are best to their wives.”

Can you say relationship goals?

Like Nurkic, Emina is also from Tuzla, Bosnia. While the two have kept their relationship mostly under the radar, we will never forget when Nurkic rocked up to a game wearing a shirt with Emina's face on it and this message: “If you can read this you’re too close, he has a girlfriend.”


That’s true love. And hey, Emina, pretty soon he’ll have a wedding ring on his hand permanently, so he won’t need a shirt to remind the ladies to back off.

Congrats to the happy couple! We can’t wait for them to tie the knot.
