Megan Rapinoe’s Girlfriend Is Actually Quite Well-Known SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/xsXMP6qQv-w : Soccer star Megan Rapinoe and her girlfriend, basketball great Sue Bird have become the sports world’s new “it” couple. While the soccer player has been making plenty of headlines in 2019, there’s much more to Bird than just being a World Cup champion’s partner.
Bird has a reputation for her cool public face, but when her mom’s partner passed away in 2012, right before Bird competed at the Olympic Games in London, Bird felt the pangs of losing someone she dearly loved. She told ESPN,
“I was sad, but I was juggling everything OK. Nobody was any the wiser.”
But all those bottled-up emotions came to a head during Bird’s first post-Olympic outing with the Seattle Storm. She said,
“The team told everyone I was sick. But the truth was, I had to go home. It was as if all the emotion, everything that I had put to the side for that month, just hit me in one moment. My battery was on empty.”
She went on to sit out the 2013 WNBA season, to recover.
