Austin Rivers engaged to model after finding new NBA home

If the Denver Nuggets make a playoff run this season, Austin Rivers will now be chasing his second ring after popping the question to his 22-year-old model girlfriend Audreyana Michelle on a recent trip to Italy. 

Rivers posted photos of their Lake Como engagement, describing his new fiancee as “My right hand, my rock, my best friend.”

Comments on the post included congrats from NBA stars around the league, including Russell Westbrook, Tobias Harris and Aaron Gordon. Former Knicks teammates Julius Randle and Obi Toppin also commented happily on the post.

The couple welcomed son Reign in March. Rivers also has a 2-year-old son, Kayden, from a previous relationship. 

Rivers, who was drafted 10th overall by the Pelicans in the 2012 NBA Draft, started last season with the Knicks before he was sent to New Orleans at the trade deadline. Rivers eventually landed with the Nuggets and played a key part for the team down the stretch.

Rivers, the son of Sixers head coach Doc Rivers, re-signed with Denver this offseason.
