Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris of the USWNT are Engaged

-“We became really close friends, and we just hung out, we clicked, and we had so much in common,” Harris, 33, says of when the two first met in 2010. “We always sat next to each other on the bus and on flights, and we kind of just talked about our dreams and our hopes and what we wanted to do one day when we grew up. Because at the time, we were kids.”

-Ali says that it was Ashlyn's "creativity and ambition" that drew her in and “I find that so attractive, and the way that she makes me a better person. I think that I’m very quiet and reserved,” she says. “Since being with Ash, I really feel like I’ve blossomed into the woman that I want to be, and she’s helped me become the woman I am.”

-the couple says that they weren't public with the relationship for years because they didn't want the attention on them.


Never thought the day would come where they'd be so open. Congrats!
