Iman posted the same photo on Instagram and captioned it, “A night full of tears of happiness
I’m beyond excited to spend the rest of my life with you @sterl_shep3 you are my soulmate, my best friend, my everything! Can’t wait to be your Mrs.”

According to E!, Shepard proposed to Iman on her birthday Friday night, then surprised her by taking her to a spot where her friends and family were gathered.

Shepard, 24, was a second-round pick by the Giants out of Oklahoma last year. He has 1,185 yards and nine touchdowns in his career. The two have been dating since at least late last year.

Caroline Wozniacki, David Lee get engaged

Caroline Wozniacki and David Lee are engaged, the two announced on social media Friday.

Wozniacki shared the following photo and tweet Friday on her Twitter account. She called her engagement to Lee the “happiest day” of her life.

Lee posted a photo and similar note on her Instagram. In both captions, they called each other their soulmates.

Wozniacki’s ring is massive, so well done by Lee on that.

Woz, 27, is the No. 3-ranked tennis player in the world. Though she’s never won a grand slam, she’s reached the finals of the US Open twice and attained the No. 1 ranking in the world in 2010. She was previously in a relationship with golfer Rory McIlroy from 2011-2014 and the two even were engaged before McIlroy broke things off after they sent out wedding invitations. Lee, 34, is currently a free agent after spending last season with the Spurs.

Justin Verlander has had a magical ride since joining the Houston Astros, and his soon-to-be wife Kate Upton has been there for every step.

Upton, who has been engaged to Verlander for over a year and a half, was in attendance in Seattle for her fiance’s first start with his new team after he was traded to Houston just before the Aug. 31 deadline. She also accompanied him from Detroit to Houston and has attended the Astros’ playoff games.

Kevin Anderson wife Kelsey is also his accountant

Kelsey Anderson Kevin wife

Wives and girlfriends often play big roles in the lives of their professional athlete significant others, but few play as big of a role as Kelsey Anderson.

Kelsey met Kevin when they were both at the University of Illinois. Kelsey played golf in college, while Kevin played tennis for the Illini. The two got married in 2011, and Kelsey, who is a CPA, now serves as Kevin’s accountant on tour. That’s a big help as she manages his finances and books all their travel, which is a big deal considering how much pro tennis players are on the move.

Kelsey is therefore on tour with husband Kevin as he travels around the world, which keeps her extremely busy. That also means she is in his corner supporting him during his matches just like she has been at the US Open, where he reached the semifinals — a career-best mark at a major.

Oh, and Kelsey also keeps her golf game strong.

Thousands of soccer fans plan march to demand Alexis Sanchez break up with girlfriend

Alexis Sanchez

Thousands of Chilean soccer fans are planning a march to protest the relationship involving Alexis Sanchez and his current girlfriend.

Sanchez plays for Arsenal in the Premier League as well as the Chilean national team. The forward has been involved in multiple trade rumors lately and has been frustrating Arsenal fans. Even manager Arsene Wenger made it seem like the team would prefer to be without Sanchez.

Well Chilean fans are dissatisfied with Sanchez too, and they feel the forward’s relationship with girlfriend Mayte Rodriguez is partly to blame for his poor form.

A Facebook group called “La Marea Roja Valparaíso” started an event scheduled for Oct. 5 in which they plan to march in protest of Sanchez’s relationship. The event is titled “MARCHA PARA QUE ALEXIS TERMINE CON MAYTE Y VUELVA A SU NIVEL” and says they hope that a breakup would allow Sanchez to return to his previous level of play in time for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

As of Thursday evening, over 56,000 people were marked on Facebook as “Going” to the event, with another 71,000 “Interested.” That’s a lot of people.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a fan base upset with a girlfriend and blamed them for a player’s struggles (this recent one comes to mind), but this might be the most extreme measures we’ve seen fans take in protest.

Justin Thomas, girlfriend Jillian Wisniewski know how to have a good time

Justin Thomas kept himself in the hunt all week at the PGA Championship, and it’s probably safe to assume his better half was on pins and needles as the drama unfolded.

Thomas and his girlfriend, Jillian Wisniewski, are no strangers to a good time. The four-time winner on the PGA Tour has shared a number of posts on social media proudly bragging about Wisniewski’s good looks, and the couple has taken plenty of vacations together since they started dating.

Back in May, Thomas and Wisniewski accompanied some other golfers to Churchill Downs.

Can't beat Derby weekend! What a weekend with this squad

A post shared by Justin Thomas (@justinthomas34) on

Thomas, a self-proclaimed momma’s boy, also revealed recently that Wisniewski shares a birthday with his mother.

Wishing a very happy birthday to both of my ladies! And here's to momma still looking that young ??

A post shared by Justin Thomas (@justinthomas34) on

But you know how we really know Wisniewski must be “the one” for Thomas? She joined Thomas on one of the many bro trips he takes with some of his golf buddies when she and some other ladies went to the Bahamas with Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth, among others. If that’s not love, we don’t know what is.
