10 Football Stars Who Dated Celebrities

9. Megan Rapinoe

Megan Rapinoe was the star of the 2019 Fifa Women's World Cup and a big reason the United States was able to win consecutive titles. The talented winger has been a member of the national team since 2003 and helped the squad capture an Olympic gold medal in London back in 2012. Off the field, the 34-year-old star is very active in the LGBT community and involved with organizations like Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN).

Since becoming a public figure, Rapinoe has been linked to a few famous folks. For roughly five years, she dated now-retired Australian football star Sarah Walsh. After the couple parted ways in 2013, the USWNT captain began a relationship with indie rock singer-songwriter Sera Cahoone. The two even announced their engagement in 2015. However, the wedding would eventually be called off and the relationship itself would ultimately come to an end, some time around early-2017.

These days, the footballer is dating another famous athlete, WNBA point guard Sue Bird. The duo have been an item since 2016. They even made a bit of history together by becoming the first lesbian couple to appear on the cover of ESPN's Body Issue.
