Zach Ertz Julie Johnston

U.S. soccer star Julie Johnston first met Zach Ertz at Stanford's baseball stadium.

Now it is also the place where the two got engaged.

Johnston, who helped the U.S. win the World Cup last summer, and Ertz, a tight end for the Philadelphia Eagles, each posted photos of the special occasion on Instagram:

He took me to the first place we met and I said YES! I get to spend forever with my best friend. The best day of my life!

Last June, Ertz wrote a blog post about how they met:

"I was a junior at Stanford, and she was a sophomore at Santa Clara University. It was a pretty random meeting at a Stanford baseball game that she just happened to be attending. I was there with my buddies and saw her sitting in the student section, and just decided I wanted to meet her. So I went up and sat right next to her. We just hit it off from there. We hung out a few more times and after that, we just decided that we were going to be together. That was that.

"It was a bit of challenge at first because the schools are about 20 minutes apart, and with us both being student athletes, there wasn't a ton of mutually spare time. But we made it work. Luckily, I had a car, so I was the one making the commute over to see her all the time. It was worth it."

Ertz signed a five-year, $42 million contract extension with the Eagles in January with $20 million guaranteed.
