GEORGE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Remember Ethan Taylor, the baseball team manager from George County High who -- with a little help from his friends on the team -- stole our hearts and the heart of Emily, the girl he asked to prom?

Well, the high school junior with cerebral palsy and his date made it the prom Saturday night. And, judging from the pictures, it's safe to say they had a really good time together.

Ethan's promposal went viral earlier this month when his teammates helped him surprise Emily with a romantic home plate proposal.

The junior manages the Rebel's baseball team and never misses a game. He loves his team. So, it was only fitting that his teammates helped the then-sophomore with the very important task.

Ethan and the entire team waited for a blind-folded Emily at home plate. Ethan, a bouquet of white roses and home plate in hand, asked a simple question: "Emily, can I steal you for prom?" The team erupted in applause and the entire tender moment was caught on camera, melting hearts across social media. 

Ethan's prom proposal video has been shared thousands of times and viewed more than 50,000 times.
