Carlos Correa had a great night.
The Houston Astros shortstop topped his World Series victory on Wednesday with another major milestone: He proposed to girlfriend Daniella Rodriguez on live TV.
Correa was in the midst of a postgame interview with Fox Sports when he said he wanted to take “another big step” in his life. He then got down on one knee and asked for Rodriguez’s hand in marriage:
In an interview with ESPN, Correa said he wanted to propose to Rodriguez, a former Miss Texas USA, but was waiting for the right moment to pop the question on the national stage. He even hid the engagement ring in his locker at Dodger Stadium. Then, during the ninth inning of the final game, Correa asked one of the clubhouse attendants to get the ring if the Astros won.
The Astros won their first championship title last night after defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in the seventh game of the World Series. As many commentators pointed out, Correa will walk away from the series with not one, but two rings.
