After Gotham FC’s Kristie Mewis confirmed her engagement to Tillies el Capitano Sam Kerr in early November, the pair have now decided to hard launch their new relationship status on Instagram. I am currently dying of fangirl overload, and it’s only the middle of my shift.
On Tuesday night, SK and Mewis made a shared post of photos from the moment they got engaged and seriously, I don’t think I’m well. This is too much for me to handle. They’re just so bloody cute!!!
In the photo dump, the pair seem to be wearing matching outfits, and it’s now clear that it was our captain who popped the big question.
JUST LOOK AT THESE PICS. LOOK AT THAT ROCK. LOOK AT THEIR FACES.
“September 1st, 2023,” the caption reads, which is seemingly the day Kerr and Mewis agreed to take their relationship to the next step.
Rumours of an engagement have surrounded living soccer legends for months now, so fans worldwide have let out a sigh, “well finally, and congrats!” as the iconic pair officially confirmed their plans to get married in early November.
Sam and Kristie, if you are reading this, know that if you need literally anything for your big day, we would die for both of you without hesitation, do not hesitate to ask.
Whispers and theories of the couple’s engagement have been flying around the internet ever since September this year, when Mewis was spotted with a VERY BIG ROCK on a very important finger in a video posted by her club, Gotham FC.
But now the big secret has been (finally!) confirmed officially by Mewis in an interview with People Magazine.
Mewis told People of how Kerr has “just been everything” for her, and said that her fiancé is her “biggest supporter, always listening to me nag and complain all, all of my crazy antics.” We stan a supportive queen.
The happy couple have been publicly dating since shortly after the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, where the first rumours of their relationship began.
Shippers of the two have been blessed with an abundance of adorable content of the couple since then, including a super cute interview in the Matildas‘ doco World At Our Feet on Disney+ where Mewis refers to Kerr as “the whole package.”

One of the fan-favourite photos of Kerr and Mewis was from the match they played against each other in the Tokyo Olympics for the Bronze medal, where the U.S unfortunately defeated Australia.
Whilst this would have been a sad moment for the Aussie captain, who sat on the grass in despair over the loss, she was quickly comforted by her girlfriend from the opposing team.
However the best content from the couple is undisputedly Kerr’s display of RIZZ in her boo’s Instagram comments. Peep this killer line from Australia’s number one footballer that should remind you that it is always okay to send that risky text.
