Rapinoe, who helped the U.S. national women's team win the World Cup tournament last month (Jul15), announced the news on Instagram.com by sharing a picture of the couple kissing on a balcony overlooking the ocean. In the snap, the sports star has her left hand raised to show off the engagement ring, and in the caption, Rapinoe, 30, writes, "This little lady's getting married".

Cahoone, who turned 40 on Tuesday (04Aug15), shared the same image and added, "This little lady is getting married too!"

The couple has been dating for almost two years.
