    Cubs fans at Friday's game witnessed a special moment between Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson and her now fiance Andrew East as he popped the question on the field.

    Johnson and fellow Olympic gymnast Alicia Sacramone threw the first pitch at the game, but before Johnson exited the field, East knelt down in front of her on the homeplate and proposed.

    East is a snapper who recently signed with the Kansas City Chiefs. Johnson earned fame in 2008 when she won the gold medal for the balance beam in the Beijing Olympics. She also later competed in "Dancing With the Stars" and won the competition.

    The Chicago Cubs also tweeted about the special moment, congratulating the couple on their engagement.
