Now she gets a ring, too.
Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo announced in a tweet Thursday he’s the “luckiest guy in the world” after his girlfriend Emily Vakos said “yes.”
“Future Mr. & Mrs. Rizzo,” the tweet, paired with a picture of the newly engaged couple on Lake Michigan, reads.
The picture shows Vakos in a floral dress and Rizzo in a black T-shirt embracing on what appears to be the back of a boat with the Chicago skyline in the background.
Vakos’ new ring is easy to notice—but Rizzo doesn’t seem to be wearing his World Series Championship ring.
Congratulatory tweets streamed in minutes after the announcement--from heartbroken female fans to the joyous Cubs mascot Clark himself.
