Mookie Betts, LA Dodgers right fielder, recently proposed to his Middle School sweetheart Brianna Hammonds, who he met when he was in the eighth grade.

@briannamichelle1 has been by my side since we were teenagers. Together we’ve grown mentally, physically, and spiritually. She is my best friend, mother of my child, my lover and my soon to be wife. Winning another World Series was great, but putting a ring on MY MVP is the REAL BLESSING! I am a blessed man. 

Mookie did it big for his proposal, he staged an awards ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee with the help of CC and Amber Sabathia, who had recently honored Mookie with the 2020 LegaCCy Award from their CC and Amber Sabathia’s PitCCh In Foundation.

Mookie told Brianna that he was being honored at a special dinner with the Sabathias’. He gave an acceptance speech before he invited Brianna to join him on stage, he then read her a poem and dropped to one knee, and presented her with a 7-carat diamond engagement ring.

Mookie and Brianna have a beautiful 2-year-old Princess, Kynlee Ivory.

Never knew what unconditional love meant or how it felt until I met this little princess. Nov 6th 2018 is a day I’ll never forget❤️

Congrats to Mookie and Brianna, and may God bless their union.

Shout out to Brianna for being that ride-or-die since the eighth grade!
