We love it when two sports stars come together. There is just something exciting about such professional powerhouses showing their romantic side to the world.
Today’s love quota is being satisfied by American tennis player Sloane Stephens and American soccer player Jozy Altidore who announced about their engagement on Monday!
The two are childhood friends but with time, walked their own paths. It was only in 2016 when they reconnected and fell in love with each other.
Sloane Stephens has won the US Open 2017 and was also a runner-up in the French Open 2018. She has six WTA titles to her name and is currently ranked No. 8 in the world. On the other hand, Jozy Altidore plays for Toronto FC since 2015. He is also a member of the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team and has played for the U.S. at all levels, including two World Cups.
Sloane Stephens posted a picture of herself and Jozy posing for a selfie on his birthday. In her caption, she said: “Happy birthday to the man who’s shown me, love I never knew existed, I love you babe (especially when you braid my hair)”
A few weeks later, Sloane Stephens and Jozy Altidore celebrated Christmas together while dressed in festive attire.
Jozy has a son from a previous relationship but Sloane treats him like his own. The three of them often go on family lunches or outings together.
When they are not playing or supporting their partner at the respective games, Sloane and Jozy love to catch a game of basketball together (they support Raptors)!
Congratulations to the couple!
