National League MVP Andrew McCutchen proposed to his girlfriend, Maria Hanslovan, on ”The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
After a brief dialogue with Ellen, McCutchen introduced a cutaway video. The montage chronicled the couple’s history and used the baseball diamond as an allegory for their relationship. It also explained that the Pirates’ star tips his cap every time he passes home plate as a hello to Maria.
According to McCutchen, he decided to propose on the show, because he wanted a platform large enough for the world to see the happy couple’s love.
