Houston Astros player proposed to his girlfriend after winning the World Series

If someone asks Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa what he did that night, he’ll probably say, “We beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game Seven of a grueling World Series…oh, and I proposed to my girlfriend!”

What!?

That’s right! In a post-game interview after winning the World Series, Correa took the plunge and proposed to girlfriend Daniella Rodriguez on national television.

“It’s everything and more,” the baseball player said. “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.”

Correa then fished the ring box out of his pocket, dropped down onto one knee, and proposed to Rodriguez.

“Daniella Rodriguez, will you make me the happiest man in the world?” asked Correa, who was presumably already a little chipper. “Will you marry me?”

Luckily for him, she said yes!

Houston Astros, World Series Champions

It’s the Houston Astros’ 56th season and they are finally champions after closing out the Los Angeles Dodgers with a 5-1 win in Game Seven of what was a hard-fought World Series.

Game 7 was an intense match with neither starting pitcher making it out of the third inning and both teams combining to use eight relievers. While on the offensive, the Astros were led to victory by George Springer, the team’s center fielder, who home ran for the fourth consecutive game (tying Reggie Jackson and Chase Utley for the most home runs in a single World Series with five).

The man of the hour, Correa, contributed greatly to the championship race, having hit two home runs over the course of the World Series, but it was his antics on the field after the game that really made headlines.

It’s unclear when Correa and the former Miss Texas USA began dating, but their first public photo is from a Kanye West concert in Chicago. Rodriguez notably botched the first pitch at an Astros game on August 31, 2016.

In reaction to Correa’s proposal, Rodriguez looked understandably shocked and said, “Oh my God” repeatedly before settling the nerves of Correa, onlookers, and television viewers across the world by saying yes.

Correa said he had been planning this for a few months. “One of the [clubhouse attendants], 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.
