Sighting: Pacers' Roy Hibbert witnesses wedding proposal at Mastro's, buys couple dinner

The Indiana Pacers’ Roy Hibbert unexpectedly got a front row seat to a wedding proposal during his dinner Sunday at Mastro's Steakhouse.

The two-time NBA All-Star – who appeared earlier that day at the Fanatics Authentic Sports Spectacular at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont – was dining with teammate George Hill when a man at a nearby table got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend.

Hibbert took a photo of the wedding proposal and posted it on Instagram for his 121,000-plus followers to see.

“Dude just (proposed) to his gf right in front of me at (Mastro’s),” Hibbert wrote on Instragram. “…Such a cute moment!”

Hibbert was so excited about what he had just witnessed, he picked up the couple’s dinner tab, according to a Mastro’s spokeswoman. The Pacers face the Bulls Monday at the United Center.
