Kristie Mewis, Sam Kerr confirm relationship after Olympic photo sparked rumors

Australian soccer star Sam Kerr has confirmed her relationship with USWNT midfielder Kristie Mewis amid romance rumors.

On Sunday, Kerr made the relationship Instagram official with a PDA Polaroid photo of pair, which showed Mewis sitting on Kerr’s lap while they shared a kiss. She captioned the post with a red heart emoji and tagged Mewis — who shared a selfie of the couple to her Instagram Story.

Mewis left a heart and kiss-face emoji in the comments, where fellow soccer players gushed over the couple. Kerr shared a flirty response, writing, “Oh, wait til I’m gone to send this?”

Rumors of a romance began brewing in recent weeks when fans noticed Kerr and Mewis sharing flirty comments on social media. The pair continued to spark dating buzz when photos showed Mewis comforting Kerr on the pitch Thursday, after the U.S. women’s national team beat Kerr’s Matildas 4-3 to win bronze in Tokyo.

Kerr confirmed the new relationship after she called it quits with her longtime partner Nikki Stanton, an American soccer player for the Chicago Red Stars. Kerr, who met Stanton in 2014, broke things off just before the Summer Games in Tokyo, according to The Daily Telegraph.
