Social media was shortly flooded with individuals congratulating James on the massive life transfer, however others have been a bit extra skeptical. That skepticism is fairly comprehensible since James hasn’t even publicly talked about that he’s courting anybody, not to mention planning to marry them! So, what’s the deal?
Is James Harden actually engaged?
The rumors began on Monday, Sept. 28 when a girl named Gail Golden uploaded a selfie to Instagram. Within the picture, Gail is grinning and seems to be carrying an engagement ring on her ring finger. (The ring at first seems to be on her proper hand, whereas brides-to-be historically put on rings on their left hand, however in fact, the picture is flipped and the ring is de facto on her left hand.) “Spoke some thangs into the universe they usually appeared!” the caption reads.
Naturally, individuals got here to the conclusion that Gail is engaged — so the place does James Harden are available? She didn’t tag James within the caption or the image. In actual fact, she wouldn’t have been capable of — he doesn’t comply with Gail Golden on Instagram and he or she doesn’t comply with him, both. Nonetheless, the remark part of her engagement ring selfie is crammed with individuals congratulating Gail on her engagement to the bearded NBA star.
Because it seems, James and Gail have been a rumored couple since at the least December 2019. Gail — who, in keeping with her Instagram bio, is a cybersecurity guide — attended a number of Rockets’ video games in Houston and has a whole Instagram Tales spotlight that includes boomerangs of her zooming in on No. 13 (Harden). Even earlier than video games have been moved to the NBA Bubble, it’s not like simply anybody acquired to attend a sport with courtside seats.
Nonetheless, neither James nor Gail has ever gone on document with their relationship and made it public information. And Instagram person @mvee59 — who seems to be James Harden’s mom — commented “not him” on Gail’s picture. Perhaps she’s making a tongue-in-cheek remark to her future daughter-in-law, or possibly she’s making an attempt to curb the rumors.
On the finish of the day, now we have extra questions than solutions. Is Gail’s ring actually an engagement ring? Is she really courting James Harden? Are they getting married?! Does James’ mother know Gail? We actually received’t know by some means till we get some type of official affirmation, and given the truth that Gail and James have remained mum on their relationship (or lack thereof), we’re not holding our breath that we’ll be getting that anytime quickly.
Understandably, some individuals are reserving their congratulations till the information is confirmed. If James and Gail really are engaged, we undoubtedly want them the perfect! And in the event that they’re not engaged, possibly it’s time to think about taking a unique step ahead of their relationship. You recognize, like following one another on Instagram.
