Major League Baseball (MLB) star Carlos Correa on Wednesday proposed to his girlfriend after helping the Houston Astros win the World Series.
Correa’s girlfriend answered yes after the Astros bested the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 to win Game 7 and take the championship in Los Angeles.
“I was planning if we were World Series champions, I was going to do it right there,” he said after the contest at Dodger Stadium field, according to ESPN.
“I don’t think that’s a stage you can create, it just has to happen,” the shortstop added. “And we were able to win tonight, so perfect timing for me to get engaged.”
“I’ve been thinking about it for months now, but I was waiting for the perfect opportunity, you know. I knew we had a great team, we could accomplish this, and I wasn’t wrong.”
Correa, 23, pitched the question to Daniella Rodriguez on live television after sinking to one knee.
“Daniella Rodriguez, will you make me the happiest man in the world?” he asked the 2016 Miss Texas USA. “Will you marry me?”
Rodriguez accepted Rodriguez’s proposal, and the pair then kissed before he presented her with an engagement ring and they kissed again.
Correa admitted that he asked for help from one of the clubhouse attendants late in the game before popping the question.
“One of the clubbies, I talked to him in the ninth inning and I’m like, ‘I don’t want to jinx anything, but if we get the three outs, please bring me the ring because I am going to get engaged in the ballpark,” he said.
“It doesn’t get any better,” Correa added of his Wednesday night.
The Astros’ victory Wednesday evening marked the first World Series title for both Houston and Texas.
The franchise needed 55 years to pick up their first MLB championship, and their battle with the Dodgers ended with Astros outfielder George Springer being crowned World Series MVP.
