Bad news, fellas: It looks like Hope Solo is taken. And she appears to be taken by an ex-football player with whom you’re probably familiar.
Solo and former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens reportedly are a couple, and they are said to be getting married on Tuesday.
The rumors about the two were mentioned online last month, and they picked up more steam over the past two days. We’ll do our best to piece together the information and tell you what is going on.
The first mention of Solo and Stevens together seemed to come from a tweet by Celebrity TV on Friday Oct. 19:
Hope Solo hung out at 50/50 last night in Chicago with her beau from The Buccaneers.

The next week, The Chicago Tribune confirmed that Solo was at 50/50 watching her Seattle Seahawks play the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Oct. 18. They mentioned that Stevens was also there, though they didn’t describe him as being together with Solo. Solo was in town for a soccer game on Saturday the 20th against Germany.
This photo, which seemed to have been posted to Instagram, shows Solo and Stevens together. It was posted to a message board on Oct. 23:
