Nick Young's 30th birthday was one he'll never forget.
The Los Angeles Lakers guard, who blew out the candles on June 1, also proposed to his girlfriend, rapper Iggy Azalea. Here's a video of the big moment:

And here's a closer look at what was inside that box:
The pair, which began dating in 2013 and bought a house together in November, has been through lots of ups and downs. Young has defended Azalea, 24, against nasty comments from Snoop Dogg and ESPN anchor Robert Flores.
Young himself has survived several scary moments during the courtship, including a dolphin attack and a Christmas gift fiasco. Azalea got Young a 1962 Chevy Impala for Christmas, and he forgot to thank her for it. That prompted this tweet:
also i just want to say, where the fuck is my man!? lol. i gave him a car and i haven't seen him since all day. hahahaha. rude ass.

It's been a rough few months for both Young and Azalea. Young sat out all of March with a kneecap fracture, forcing him to watch as his Lakers stumbled to the worst record in franchise history. Azalea, meanwhile, recently took heat from fans all over the world for postponing and then canceling her Great Escape tour.
Both Young and Azalea, it seems, needing something positive. And they got it, thanks to Young's proposal.
Who knew a relationship that started at Target could be this successful?
