Soccer star Robbie Rogers and his partner, television writer, director and producer Greg Berlanti are engaged.

The couple, who have been together since 2013, made the announcement in Instagram posts.

“Thank you to everyone before us that made this moment possible…I feel extremely lucky and blessed to end 2016 engaged to the love of my life,” Rogers wrote in his post.

Berlanti, who has written and directed for shows such as “Dawson’s Creek,” “Arrow” and “Supergirl,” shared the same photo, with a caption of his own, in which he reflected on a big year.

“2016 was memorable for many reasons, for me it as the year my heart doubled in size. First, when my son Caleb was born. And second, a few days ago, when I got engaged to my soulmate,” he wrote.

Berlanti’s son Caleb was born in February, with the help of a surrogate.

“Though I dreamed of both those things happening, I’m not sure I truly believed they were possible,” Berlanti continued. “Thanks to the friends and family who helped me find my way to this moment in my blessed life. a happy and healthy 2017 to all.”
