National soccer stars Sam Kerr and Kristie Mewis started dating during the COVID-19 pandemic and have been together ever since.

Rumors about the U.S. national player and Australian captain started circulating following an intimate moment between the two after Australia lost to Team USA at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021. The couple later revealed that they had been dating since 2020 in a January 2023 interview with Gaffer.

“We were forced to talk,” Mewis said at the time.

“Literally forced to talk,” Kerr chimed in. “It was about three or four months until we could hang out in person. The first time we ever met there was quarantine so we had to spend two weeks together the first time we met. I was thinking if I don’t like her this is going to be awkward.”

Luckily, the pair hit it off and fell deeply in love. After navigating a long-distance relationship for years, they announced their engagement in November 2023. One month later, Mewis signed with West Ham United and moved to London to be closer to her fiancée.

Despite their ups and downs, Mewis hopes their romance can serve as an inspiration to others.

“I think just being out and being two girls in love, I think if we can change one or two people’s lives and the way that they feel about each other and how comfortable they feel, then that means a lot to me,” Mewis told Gaffer in 2023.
