Robbie Rogers has revealed that he and boyfriend of three years Greg Berlanti are engaged

, to the world in February last year.
Berlanti, 44, also shared the happy news to his Instagram followers, writing: "2016 was memorable for many reasons, for me as the year my heart doubled in size. First, when my son Caleb was born. And second, a few days ago, when I got engaged to my soulmate.
"Though I dreamed of both those things happening, I'm not sure I truly believed they were possible. Thanks to the friends and family who helped me to find my way to this moment in my blessed life. A happy and healthy 2017 to all."
Rogers took a vocal stance against all forms of discrimination in 2016. In May, he accused FIFA of being run by "old, racist, sexist, homophobic dudes

during a football match.
