She posted a picture of Rapinoe kneeling and putting a ring on Bird's left hand. The picture was captured with a shiny cloud-filled sky and sea on the background, with the two occupying the swimming pool area.

The post was not captioned but was open for words from their followers and friends.

“You are my favorite Couple ever. Sue. I have your autograph and Megan. You are probably my favorite player ever. I have 1 Megan rapinoe jersey and 2 Megan Rapinoe posters in my room,” one fan commented.

Another chimed, “This is beautiful!!”

Most recently, on February 15, 2021, Rapinoe, a leader on the U.S. women's national soccer team, also posted a picture with her partner Bird and expressed her love.

“I love you so much. Thank you for sitting your g string butt in the sand for me. Thank you for being everything to me,” she wrote in the caption.

The famous football player was previously dating an Australian football player, Sarah Walsh.

She had been together with her former girlfriend, Walsh, since 2009. But after about five years into the relationship, the duo split in 2013.

Moving on from the heartbreak, she started going out with Sub Pop Recording artist Sera Cahoone. And just after two years into their dating life, the pair got engaged.

She took it to her Instagram and shared the engagement news where she and her girlfriend-to-be wife looked perfect, kissing and holding each other in their arms, flaunting the engagement ring.

Although she looked to get married to Sera, the wedding was put to hold in late 2016 as the news of her new girlfriend Bird started flaunting all over social media. They eventually separated by the year 2017.

Power of Sports, Came Out as Gay

The star of the US Women’s national team came out as a lesbian during an interview with Out magazine in 2012, before the Olympic campaign began.

"I feel like sports in general are still homophobic, in the sense that not a lot of people are out," she said.

Rapinoe added, "I feel everyone is really craving [for] people to come out. People want -- they need -- to see that there are people like me playing soccer for the good ol’ U.S. of A."

Moreover, she wanted her sexuality to be known publicly for the sake of her fans, especially for the LGBT community who looked up to her.

That act proved that the world of sports is not just a great platform that lets the players showcase their abilities but also inspires a large number of people in many different ways.
