Soccer star Mallory Pugh was given a sweet shoutout by boyfriend Dansby Swanson after he helped the Atlanta Braves win the World Series. The shortstop called her “the love of his life,” and fans everywhere can’t get enough of the adorable couple. Any chance they’ll get engaged soon?
After the game, Mallory ran onto the field to celebrate with her boyfriend and the rest of the team. This was after Swanson spoke to reporters and said, “I’ve got my family here, my best friends are here, the love of my life Mallory is here.”
One lucky fan was able to capture the sweet hug between the pair and the Internet is gushing at the pure love that the couple showed after the amazing win for the Braves. This is the Atlanta Braves’ first World Series win since 1995.
Dansby Swanson, whose hometown is Atlanta, Ga, became a hometown hero this week after the baseball team’s win. The shortstop, who hit a two-run home run during the fifth inning that pulled the team out in front, is proud of his city’s newest accomplishment.
He said, “You cant even put into words how much this means, not for me, but for the entire organization, the entire city. “I’m an Atlanta lifer,” Swanson declared. “I live and die the city of Atlanta and there’s no place that deserves it more than the city of Atlanta. Being raised there, growing up there, having roots there.”
This cute pair met back in 2017 after Dansby was introduced to Mallory by his former Braves teammate, Jace Peterson. Jace also happens to be married to Mallory’s sister, Brianna.
They seemed to hit it off, because after four years they are still going strong. Sports fans are wondering if Dansby is going to propose anytime soon because they seem like a pretty perfect couple.
In response to the video of them hugging after the World Series, one fan commented, “power couple vibes for sure,” and we have to agree!
Mallory likes to post a lot about her boyfriend on her Instagram and is always supporting the shortstop’s career. Both Mallory and Dansby are constantly captioning their posts, “my forever and always.”
Even with her boyfriend’s World Series win, Mallory has her own list of impressive soccer accomplishments. One fan joked on Twitter and said that Dansby is now equal to his girlfriend’s amazing sports status.
They tweeted, “It’s great Dansby Swanson was able to win a WS title and catch up to the success of his girlfriend and legend Mallory Pugh.”
The 23-year-old is a rising USWNT star and has been playing soccer since she was just 4-years-old.
Her skills grew in high school and by the time she graduated she was one of the best female soccer players in the country. During her time at Mountain Vista High School in Colorado she scored over 47 goals and had helped with 21 assists.
At the age of 17, Mallory started playing for the United States Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) and became the youngest player there in over 11 years.
She was also a member of the 2016 U.S. Olympic Soccer team and the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup championship team.
