Adelaide Strikers legspinner Amanda-Jade Wellington was left stunned when her boyfriend proposed in front of teammates and hundreds of cheering fans. After their thumping win over Melbourne Renegades on Saturday, the Strikers were seen giving autographs to the fans.
Tayler McKechnie, who has been dating Wellington for over a year, soon took the help of ground staff to get the players together for what they all thought was a “group photo.”
Wellington had no idea what was going on when McKechnie came on the field.
“When I saw him on the field, I just thought: ‘Get off, we’re trying to take a team photo.’ I had no idea what was really happening, but I’m so happy, I’m still shaking,” she said.
McKechnie proposed Wellington using a Pokemon card with the words ‘Will you marry me?’ written on it and the ring inside the ‘poke ball.’
The 22-year-old Amanda didn’t think twice before happily saying ‘Yes.’
Here’s the video:
So, this just happened!!! 😃
