"I want to thank you all for your continued support as I've transitioned into a new chapter of my life. I've received many beautiful/powerful messages and gifts and I'm so incredibly grateful," he addressed his fans in the retelling of his latest trips and developments during retirement. "Lastly, and most importantly, I recently got engaged to the love of my life, Hannah, I have never been this happy and I'm excited for our future together!"

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.
