Tennis star Sloane Stephens and soccer stud Jozy Altidore announced their engagement on social media today.
According to reports, the two super athletes were childhood friends and started dating in 2016.
In an interview with USA Today in 2017, Altidore spoke about their relationship:
“She is somebody who gets everything I am going through without having to say anything,” Altidore said in the interview. “You look at each other and you kind of know right away if one of you is annoyed. She just kind of gets the mood I’m in, as obviously she lives a very similar kind of life.
“In that regard it works really well, there is no stress. She is a successful athlete and I do okay, and we just enjoy our time together when we are together.”
Stephens, 26, is currently ranked no. 8 in the WTA rankings. Altidore, 29, plays for the Toronto FC and is also known as a standout on the U.S. men’s national team.
