A new photo of Sam Kerr and partner Kristie Mewis has fuelled speculation over whether the pair are indeed engaged.
The couple caused a stir last week when Mewis was seen wearing a dazzling ring on her engagement finger in a recent video posted by her team.
Another photo posted by the women’s football star showed a huge rock on Mewis’ finger.
Despite no official announcements, internet sleuths are convinced that the Aussie World Cup hero and her American partner are ready to walk down the aisle.
However, the couple appear to be going to great lengths to make the world wait for that confirmation.
The pair have turned heads with their most recent photos now showing Mewis hiding her engagement ring finger.
Kerr and Mewis on Friday popped up in a photo posted by Mewis’ Gotham FC teammate Alexandra Krieger. The photo showed the pair celebrating while cuddling up on a couch.
Krieger posted a photo of the pair on her Instagram stories where Mewis appears to be deliberately covering Kerr’s left hand. In another video posted, Mewis, 32, appears to be covering her engagement finger with the sleeve of her top.
In a sign the pair are having a laugh while the world is in a spin over their relationship status, Mewis posted a third photo on her own Instagram stories on Friday with Kerr and herself both hiding their hands.
The photos have only poured more fuel on the burning rumours.
The Matildas superstar and her USA representative girlfriend have been together since 2021 and regularly post loved up pictures together on social media.
While the pair have not made any official announcements, it hasn’t stopped fans from getting excited for the couple.
Kerr and Mewis went public with their relationship in 2021 after the Tokyo Olympics.
“We’re not private people,” Kerr told Gaffer.
“I like sharing my story. I like sharing who I am outside of football.”
Kerr added that it was important to her to be with someone who understood the demands of football, particularly when they play on the opposite sides of the world.
Mewis added: “I think just being out and being two girls in love, I think if we can change one or two people’s lives, and the way that they feel about each other and how comfortable they feel, then that means a lot to me.
“I love to share my relationship on social media.”
