Soccer player Robbie Rogers announced on Instagram Saturday that he and his boyfriend, TV producer Greg Berlanti, are engaged to marry.
Rogers took to Instagram to make the announcement:
Thank you to everyone before us that made this moment possible... I feel extremely lucky and blessed to end 2016 engaged to the love of my life. ❤ Happy New Year!
The proposal reportedly took place late last week.
It’s sweet that he thought to thank the people who over the last few decades paved the path to same-sex marriage. Rogers has made it a point on many occasions to appreciate those who came before him.
The couple began dating not long after Rogers came out publicly in 2013. They broke up temporarily in 2014, but that didn’t last long. Earlier this year, Berlanti had a son through a surrogate. Across social media, Rogers has certainly felt like the baby’s other father all along.
Congratulations to Rogers and Berlanti! We at Outsports wish you all the happiness in the world together.
