If you don't know power couple Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird, then you're missing out on a seriously enviable romance. Co-captain of the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Megan Rapinoe has won some pretty awesome awards this year (like both the Golden Boot and Golden Ball titles, as well as, you know, the 2019 World Cup), and watching her celebrate her victories with Seattle Storm basketball star Sue Bird has made them feel even sweeter. Seriously, just look at photos of Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird together and tell me you don't believe in true love. I dare you.

Rapinoe is never shy when it comes to expressing her opinion, and if you read Bird's piece in the Player's Tribune, called "So the President F*cking Hates My Girlfriend," then you'll know that Rapinoe's other half doesn't hold back either. The two women have said plenty of sweet things about each other to the media, but a picture is a thousand words, and every picture of Rapinoe and Bird together is filled with so much love. From vacations to celebrations, I've rounded up the most adorable pics of the power couple, and I'm pretty sure I'd be willing to cater their inevitable wedding if it got me an invite.

I'm not saying this hug was the reason the US team beat Sweden 2-0, but I'm also not not saying it was the reason.

Did you hear that? That was the sound of my heart bursting. Please never let go of each other, you two.

I would be remiss not to acknowledge that their relationship has been tested by the media. What makes it so powerful for me, however, is the fact that — in the face of adversity — these two appear to have only strengthened their bond. Personally, I can't wait to see the day when two women kissing isn't a news story, but until then, I'm just going to celebrate all of the attention these two superstars have been getting (and all of the loved-up pics that I've been graced with as a result).
