Alex Cobb found a creative, wet way to pop the question.

Last weekend, the Tampa Bay Rays right-hander proposed to his girlfriend, Kelly Reynolds, with assistance from an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin at Discovery Cove in Orlando. The two were swimming in a tropical oasis at the marine park when the dolphin approached Reynolds with a buoy that read, "Kelly, will you marry me?"

Upon reading the message, she responded, "What?" before the two kissed. She began to cry with joy. Cobb smiled. They kissed again. Then Reynolds said, "Yeah," while nodding her head and overcome with emotion.

A moment to treasure, for sure.
