Cubs first baseman and Chicago heartthrob Anthony Rizzo recently got engaged to his fiance Emily Vakos. The couple opened up about how they met, wedding planning and played the Newlywed Game with Chicago Splash!
Anthony and Emily met while the team was in Arizona for spring training in 2016 and Emily was interning for the Cubs' nutrition team. Anthony was determined to take her out.
“I was relentless in my pursuit of her,” Rizzo laughs now. He asked her to dinner, “but lunch was the compromise, to keep it more professional.

Splash Magazine quizzed the couple on their favorite things including movies, food and sports. Read the game HERE
