Seattle Storm guard Sue Bird gets personal in a new interview with ESPNW, opening up about her life and relationship with soccer star Megan Rapinoe. That was never the case for me.” According to Voepel, Bird has been comfortable with her sexual identity since privately coming out while in college at Connecticut, and considered her realization a “non-issue” for both her and those to whom she was closest. Bird, 36, considered publicly coming out before the 2016 Rio Games, when she initially included “I’m gay” as a part of a “25 Things You Didn’t Know About Olympians” piece. Now, Bird is open about her relationship with Rapinoe, 32, a midfielder with the Seattle Reign FC and the United States women’s national soccer team. Rapinoe, who came out as gay in a 2012 interview, is involved in a number of LGBTQ causes and organizations. Bird said she chose to come out now because it feels right.
These aren’t secrets to people who know me,” Bird told ESPNW’s Mechelle Voepel. I think people have this assumption that if you’re not talking about it, you must be hiding it, like it’s this secret. The 10-time WNBA All-Star has also won four Olympic gold medals as part of the US women’s team (2004, 2008, 2012, 2016).

Something that was allegedly making Rodgers’ ex-girlfriend Olivia Munn both “terrified” and “furious.” (Though it seems to me that she’s been doing just fine without him, thank you very much.) Well, now apparently Aaron Rodgers and Kelly Rohrbach are no more (or never were, depending on who you believe).
However, there are reasons why these couples are worth talking about. If you love football, you may want to know who the women behind the football icons you admire are.
