Motive couple Sue Bird and Megan Rapinoe are engaged.
Bird posted a photo on Rapinoe’s Instagram on his knee and placed a ring on the left ring finger of the Seattle Storm Guard.
The couple met at the sponsor event of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games and successfully completed. They were the first gay couples to show up in public, appearing on the cover of “Physical Problems” in “ESPN Magazine”.
Since Bird revealed that the two are dating, Seattle sports stars have become iconic couples in the LGBTQ community. Bird’s true history includes three WNBA champions and storms, four Olympic gold medalists, three FIBA world champions and two NCAA championships at UConn.
Rapinoe and Bird are outspoken with each other’s support. They both created works in the Player Tribune last year. The football legend wrote the WNBA Finals trailer earlier this month, and the basketball idol wrote “So President F * cking Hates My Girlfriend” in the July 2019 World Cup semi-final trailer.
People often support each other on the sidelines. For example, when Rapinoe (formerly the co-captain of the U.S. Women’s National Football Team) led her team to victory in the 2019 World Cup, Bird cheered and vice versa. Seattle Storm dominates the 2020 WNBA Finals.
With the tweets of the Seattle storm, this is the season for two lovebirds.
