The post quickly lit up on social media, and Bird and Rapinoe have strong followers on these social media.
Bird won her fourth WNBA championship earlier this summer because the storm defeated the Las Vegas ace. Rapinoe has twice won the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The two sports icons started dating in 2016.
