Alongside the sweet notes about his time post-Major League Soccer, Donovan posted a few pictures of his travels, and, of course, two adorable photos and him and now fiancé Hannah Bartell, a hotel sales executive, post "Yes!" In the pictures, above, the two are clearly over-the-moon about their upcoming wedding. But more importantly, you can see her ring in the snaps! From what we can tell, it looks like a sizable pear-cut diamond set in a split-shank pavé band and halo. What a sparkler!

The L.A. Galaxy congratulated the lovebirds on Instagram, with the message: "Congrats to #LAGalaxy legend @10LandonDonovan on his engagement!"

The twosome have been together for more than a year-and-a-half. This will be Landon's second marriage, he divorced from Bianca Kajlich in 2011 after five years of marriage.
