Ladies and gentleman, Alex Morgan is off the market.
The American soccer star broke hearts everywhere by agreeing to marry fellow soccer professional Servando Carrasco on Monday. Morgan used Instagram to announce her engagement to the wider world.
Carrasco, 25, and Morgan, 24, met when they were freshmen at the University of California, Berkeley and have been dating ever since.
Carrasco, a midfielder for Major League Soccer’s Houston Dynamo, recently finished his third professional season. He spent most of his career with the Seattle Sounders but was traded to the Dynamo in September.
Morgan’s career has brought her much more fame and fortune than Carrasco’s. She turned professional in 2010 and is already one of the top women’s soccer players in the world. Her resume includes the Olympic gold medal she won in 2012 and she regularly competes for the sport’s highest honors. She is also a social and mass media darling and a regular recipient of marriage proposals from adoring fans.
Morgan’s secret and not-so-secret admirers can only ask “what if?” because there’s no chance she’ll say yes to any of them. Sorry.
