Elena has been romantically involved with the love of her life, Amanda Clifton, for almost five years now. Elena was first introduced to Amanda back in June 2013 through her best friend, Meghan McLean, during her rookie season with WNBA team Chicago Sky.

The pair shared the mutual feeling since the moment they met. The couple even shared mutual interests which made their relationship stronger. According to Amanda, she fell in love when she and Elena were spending time together in Elena's home and Amada had to leave during the weekend to see her family.

During that time, Amanda could not make her way out of the house as she wanted to be there with Elena for a little longer. The exact moment she realized she had fallen in love with Amanda and is willing to spend the rest of her lives with her.

As they were dating, Elena was planning to propose Amanda but her surprise Amanda first popped the question back in June 2016. Prior to their engagement, they both remained utterly silent regarding their relationship.

Elena, who has the maximum salary in the neighborhood of $107,000 per year, had most wonderful proposal from Amanda which she could not say no to. Elena was presented with a ring which was hanged on the collar of her pet dog and Amanda got down on one knee and asked her to marry her.

It turns out, Elena was planning her own scheme for the proposal which she flawlessly executed a few weeks later. Elena had planned an intimate eight-course dinner at home with their favorite foods. At the end of the meal, Elena brought out their pet dog Rasta, donning a wedding veil along with a sign that read as "Marry me?"

Well, after their engagement Amanda and Elena both revealed their relationship publicly and were eagerly looking forward to exchanging the marriage vows.
