Kris Bryant receives adorable marriage proposal during hospital visit
Kris Bryant and wife Jessica paid a visit this week to the Adult Down Syndrome Center at Advocate Hospital in Park Ridge, Ill., where they surprised a group of patients. Perhaps the best — and most adorable — part of the visit is when a young woman named Julie made a marriage proposal to the Chicago Cubs superstar, his wife’s presence be darned.

Both Bryant and his wife played off the proposal brilliantly (via MLB.com):
“You have to ask her,” Bryant laughs, pointing to Jessica who had an infectious smile on her face. By the looks of it, she didn’t seem to mind the display.
The patient used her manners and asked “please,” so Bryant ultimately gave in as the crowd cheered.
Jess has some competition with this proposal!! Thank you all for letting us hangout and for signing my cleats! pic.twitter.com/hJ6pKALlIs

Jessica even took to Twitter to react to the sudden turn of events, joking it’s all good between her and Julie in light of the youngster’s thoughtful dinner invitation.
I have to watch out for Julie!! BUT she did invite me over for moms sloppy joes tonight, so who's really winning here??! https://t.co/kI6lE5A6Vp

The Bryants were engaged in 2015 and married on Jan. 7, 2017. Despite their heartwarming gesture to Julie, odds are good the newlyweds, who were high school sweethearts, are in it for the long haul.
