NBC News reports:
Athletes Sue Bird and Megan Rapinoe have found a winning combo. The couple announced their engagement Friday night on Bird’s Instagram with a photo of Rapinoe kneeling and putting a ring on Bird’s left land.
Bird, a guard for the Seattle Storm, and Rapinoe, a leader on the U.S. women’s national soccer team, met at the 2016 Olympics and began dating not long after. Bird has three WNBA championships and four Olympic gold medals. Rapinoe helped led her team to an Olympic gold meal and two World Cup titles.
Rapinoe, 35, who once called herself “a walking protest,” has been an outspoken advocate for LGBTQ and women’s rights — helping spearhead a campaign to get pay equity for the U.S. women’s national soccer team.
