Looks like Serena Williams wasn't the only pro athlete to get engaged this engagement season! Soccer star Robbie Rogers, 29, is engaged to longtime boyfriend and producer Greg Berlanti, 44, having announced the news via social media this past weekend.
The couple — who welcomed a son, Caleb Berlanti, via surrogate last year — shared selfies to break the news of their new status. "Thank you to everyone before us that made this moment possible," Rogers, who is a winger for the L.A. Galaxy, captioned his Instagram Saturday. "I feel extremely lucky and blessed to end 2016 engaged to the love of my life. Happy New Year!"
Berlanti, a writer and producer for shows like Dawson’s Creek, Arrow and Supergirl, also expressed his excitement and happiness on Instagram, with the same photo that Rogers shared, which features the couple posing in front of a string quartet: "2016 was memorable for many reasons, for me it as the year my heart doubled in size. First, when my son Caleb was born. And second, a few days ago, when I got engaged to my soulmate ❤️ though I dreamed of both those things happening, i'm not sure I truly believed they were possible. Thanks to the friends and family who helped me find my way to this moment in my blessed life. a happy and healthy 2017 to all."
Rogers and Berlanti have been dating since 2013, People reports, and welcomed their son in February. “It is with much pride and love that I introduce to the world my son, Caleb Gene Berlanti. Born on February 18, 2016,” Berlanti captioned a photo collage of him and Rogers holding the newborn. "There is nothing I've wanted more, or waited for longer, than to be a father. Achieving this dream would not have been possible without the love and support of my wonderful family and surrogate, incredible boyfriend, amazing friends and co-workers that encouraged me and helped me on this remarkable journey. Check back in approximately 25-30 years for the tell-all about how I screwed it all up, until then apologies for the over posting of baby photos. My heart is full forever."
2016 was certainly quite the happy year for this sweet couple — here's hoping their 2017 is even better!
