Lone gone are the days when you had to hide your sexuality. We have come to embrace it, and of the out and proud LGBTQ+ members are Houston Dash players Kristie Mewis and Rachel Daly.
The pair was one of the most liked couples of Houston Dash. But everything’s not well between them. Stick until the end to learn the tea between the estranged couples.
Mewis And Daly’s Background
- Kristie Mewis is from Massachusetts, USA, while Rachel Daly is from Harrogate, UK.
- Daly currently plays with Aston Villa.
- Mewis was selected by NWSL expansion club San Diego Wave FC in December 2021.
- Both of them previously played for Houston Dash.
Beginnings Are Always Beautiful
When things end, we always go back to the beginning. Looking back on the relationship between former Houston Dash players, then the club itself played the role of Cupid.
Playing for the same team worked in their favor. But interestingly enough, the club might have hinted at the beginning of a romance between Kristie Mewis and Rachel Daly.
Mewis and Daly started dating on November 11, 2017, but about two months prior, Houston Dash posted a shot of the upcoming couple on the field.
Both athletes stayed lowkey about their relationship but started dropping hints when Rachel first posted Kristie on her VSCO account on December 7, 2017.
The hints turned to confirmation when Kristie wished Rachel Valentine’s Day with a bold confession of her love. Learn about another LGBTQ+ couple JoJo Siwa and Avery Cyrus.
While everything was going well in their love life, the duo was seen encouraging each other on the pitch as well.
The duo literally were there for each other on their good and especially bad days. On May 27, 2018, Kristie injured her left knee in a match against Washington Spirit.
During the next match, Rachel scored two goals against the Washington Spirit and dedicated the victory to her girlfriend, Mewis. The couple celebrated their first anniversary with an adorable post of their adventure together.
The two soccer players never shied away from showing each other their love and support. Just like them, we too thought they would be an end game, but every good thing comes to an end.
Kristie Mewis and Rachel Daly Breakup
Unfortunately, after being a couple for more than two years, the pair called it quits for unknown reasons. Neither of them has commented on this.
Following their breakup, both of them played at the Olympics for Great Britain. They must have gone their separate ways on good terms considering they still haven’t unfollowed each other on Instagram.
Mewis’ New Love Interest
The couple kept their relationship private until they made headlines at the Tokyo Olympics in August 2021 when Mewis was seen comforting Kerr on the pitch.
Samantha Kerr confirmed her relationship with Kristie by posting a Polaroid picture of them sharing a passionate kiss with a heart caption on her Instagram.
Sam was also previously linked with another soccer star, Chicago Red Stars player Nikki Stanton. Kerr and Stanton were a couple of seven years.
The Australian star talked to her friends about falling out of love and is the one who initiated the breakup.
Mewis and Kerr are now considered to be the power couple of the sports, and both of them are gearing up for the World Cup.
The girlfriends will face each other from different sides, Kerr from the host country Australia and Kristie from the USWNT.
As professionals, they will be keeping their personal relationships at bay. We all are pumped to witness the Women’s World Cup 2023.
We wish the new couple’s relationship keeps getting stronger with each passing year and also send out best wishes for World Cup.
