Moments after the Astros won their first title at Dodger Stadium by beating LA 5-1 in Game Seven, the 23-year-old Puerto Rican said he was “ready to take another big step” in his life.

“Daniella Rodriguez, will you make me the happiest man in the world? Will you marry me?” he asked the former Miss Texas, who covered her face with her hands in shock and said, “Yes”.

Fans cheered as Correa slid the diamond ring onto her finger.
