Shawn Johnson received countless medals during her career as a gymnast. But on Friday, she received her first ring.

The former Olympic star became engaged to her boyfriend at Wrigley Field before a game between the Chicago Cubs and the Philadelphia Phillies.

Johnson won a gold medal and three silver medals as a member of the U.S. gymnastics team at the 2008 Summer Olympics, held in Beijing.

Andrew East, a former long snapper at Vanderbilt University who signed a free agent contract with the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs in May, dropped to one knee just off to the side of home plate.

Congratulations to @ShawnJohnson and @AndrewDEast on their engagement before today's #Cubs game!
