United States Women's National Team superstar Alex Morgan announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend Servando Carrasco on Monday with a clever Instagram photo showing off her shiny new ring.

She shared another picture on Twitter and expressed her happiness:

Morgan's national team teammate and friend Sydney Leroux was among the first to congratulate the 24-year-old:

If Carrasco's name sounds familiar, that's because he's also a professional soccer player. The 25-year-old midfielder is currently a member of Major League Soccer's Houston Dynamo, but made 54 appearances with the Seattle Sounders from 2011 to 2013.

Morgan played for the Seattle Sounders Women briefly in 2012 before being allocated to the National Women's Soccer League's Portland Thorns at the start of 2013. 

It goes without saying that Carrasco is a lucky guy. In addition to her natural beauty and charming personality, Morgan is one of the top female athletes on the planet. 

The talented striker first burst onto the scene in 2011, helping lead the U.S. Women's National Team to the 2011 Women's World Cup final. Morgan scored a goal in the Americans' semifinal win over France and the gut-wrenching loss to Japan in the tournament final.

Since then, the two-time FIFA Ballon d'Or Award finalist has become a force for the U.S. Women's squad, scoring 34 international goals since the start of 2012.

Morgan scored three goals at the 2012 London Olympics, helping lead the U.S. to its third consecutive gold-medal finish at the Summer Games.
