Pirates Andrew McCutchen proposes to girlfriend on Ellen Show (Video)

A while back we saw a Houston Texans cheerleader get proposed to her by her boyfriend during their weekly “Friday Freestyle” video. Well, Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen has raised the bar.

McCutchen and his girlfriend, Maria, went on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. During the show, McCutchen took the opportunity to make a memorable moment by proposing to her.

“I always envisioned that I would be on the highest mountain in the world,” he said, “and that my voice would be as loud as a lion’s roar — times a billion — so the whole world could hear me, just to tell you how much that I love you.

“I didn’t do any of this for the publicity, I didn’t do any of this for the recognition. I did this to show you that if I could tell the whole world how much I love you, I would do that.”

Then he took the official proposing position and got down on one knee.

“So Maria, will you marry me?”

She said yes. Congratulations to the couple.
