OL Reign teammates Jess Fishlock and Tziarra King announced their engagement Sunday night via Instagram.

The pair shared shared engagement photos to their accounts, and OL Reign teammates Sofia Huerta, Bethany Balcer as well as USWNT stars Ali Krieger, Carson Pickett and Hailie Mace were among those to share their congratulations.

The NWSL stars give the Seattle club just one more reason to celebrate.

OL Reign claimed the NWSL Shield with a 3-0 win over the Orlando Pride in their regular season finale on Oct. 1, so they enter the playoffs as the No. 1 seed. They’ll start their playoff run at 7:30 p.m. ET Sunday, when they’ll host the No. 5 Kansas City Current at Lumen Field.

Fishlock and King will look to continue their banner month. Fishlock scored the game-winning goal for Wales in extra time against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Oct. 6 in the UEFA World Cup qualifying playoffs.

“I think that was my best and most important Wales goal, probably both,” the 2021 NWSL MVP said after the match.

After the goal, Fishlock ran to the stands to embrace King.

“Idk, y’all might as well start calling me the King consort of Wales,” King joked on social media, posting the video of her and Fishlock in the stands.
