Last January, former Major League Soccer star Matt Pacifici and his boyfriend Dirk Blanchat came out in an Instagram post.
The photo of the two instantly went viral, with the caption, “What do you mean ‘I didn’t tell you?”
“When you’re in a relationship that makes you happy, and on social media you see people posting about their girlfriends, it feels weird not being a part of that,” Pacifici said in an interview with Outsportsabout the cute AF Insta post. “You want them to know. This relationship is the one that makes me the most happy ever in my life.”
