McDonnell also shared a video of her and Hosmer celebrating:

Hosmer and McDonnell, who is a TV reporter, have been dating since 2015. This is not McDonnell’s first engagement, as she was previously engaged to a former college football star before the two broke things off.

Hosmer played in 38 games for the Padres in the abbreviated 2020 MLB season. He hit .287 with nine home runs and 36 RBI. He went just 4-for-25 in six playoff games.
