Love and Baseball: Astros Shortstop Carlos Correa Proposes to Girlfriend During Post-Game Interview
Love was definitely in the air at Dodger Stadium as the Houston Astros captured their first World Series title in franchise history — and one player knew just how to mark the milestone.
Astros shortstop Carlos Correa was speaking to a reporter after their huge victory over the L.A. Dodgers Wednesday when he spotted his girlfriend, pulled a little box out of his back pocket and got down on one knee.
“It's one of the biggest steps of my life, one of the biggest accomplishments of my life and right now I’m about to take another big step in my life,” he said during the live post-game interview. “You make me the happiest man in the world. Will you marry me?”
His girlfriend, Daniella Rodriguez, who was Miss Texas 2016, was overcome with emotion and kept repeating, “Oh my God,” until she finally said yes.
Now, Correa has a World Series ring while his fiancée has a shiny new engagement ring.
They weren't the only couple celebrating, as a Dodgers fan proposed to his girlfriend at the game.
Ray Rodriguez got down on one knee and popped the question to girlfriend Evin Huffield. They've been dating for seven years so where better to pop the question than Game 7?
“I just remember saying, ‘Right here? Right now? Is this real? What's happening?’ Huffield told Inside Edition.
