Soccer power couple Kristie Mewis and Sam Kerr shared their engagement photos on social media Tuesday morning.

The two shared the pictures of the engagement, which took place on Sept. 1, according to the couple’s caption. That means that the duo kept it under wraps for roughly two months, as they did not announce their engagement until Nov. 10, though they had invited speculation since late September.

On Oct. 24, Mewis posted a collage on Instagram that featured one photo with her engagement ring facing the camera.

The couple broke the news in an exclusive for People Magazine just ahead of the NWSL Championship match, which Mewis won with Gotham FC. Mewis told People that Kerr has “just been everything” for her in 2023.

“My biggest supporter, always listening to me nag and complain all, all of my crazy antics,” Mewis said.

And while the long-distance relationship is hard at times, as Kerr plays for English club Chelsea, it helps that they play the same sport, they said.

“I think the thing that keeps us going is that we can see an end point. We both just want each other to do so well in our careers,” Kerr said. “I don’t think you could be in a long-distance relationship with someone who didn’t get the sport. She fully gets it and I get it. So we just support each other.”
