Anthony Rizzo gets engaged to girlfriend Emily Vakos

Anthony Rizzo Emily Vakos

It’s wedding season for the Chicago Cubs.

Kris Bryant got married in January, and five months later, teammate Anthony Rizzo popped the question.

Rizzo posted a photo on Twitter Thursday sharing the news of his engagement.

The proposal appears to have taken place on the water, based on the photos. The Cubs first baseman shared a few more photos on Instagram, including one that shows the enormous diamond ring:

Wow! Soon to be Mr. And Mrs. Rizzo

Rizzo has been together with girlfriend Emily Vakos since at least early last year, which is when she first made an appearance on his Instagram page.
