Meet Brook Lopez’ girlfriend, Hailee Strickland, after the couple recently got engaged at Disney World, where they first met over thirteen years ago.

Brook Lopez has been an established NBA player for more than 12 years since being drafted in 2008 by the New Jersey Nets. Lopez is the Nets’ all-time leading scorer, but since 2018 he has been with the Milwaukee Bucks.

During his time with the Bucks he has become a fan favorite as a larger than life character who can often be heard joking around whenever he’s miked up.

Lopez was part of the Bucks team who won a championship in 2021. Alongside the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday, he has restored the Bucks to a championship-calibre team.

Brook is originally from Los Angeles, California, and we know all about his twin and fellow NBA player Robin Lopez. But what about his girlfriend?
