The pair were introduced by Swanson's former Braves teammate Jace Peterson, who happens to be married to her sister, Brianna Pugh, and they have been dating since 2017. 

Following the World Series win last month, Swanson didn't forget to shoutout Pugh during postgame interviews, saying, "I’ve got my family here, my best friends are here, the love of my life Mallory is here."

The Chicago Red Stars forward later posted a selfie of the two after the game on her Instagram story with the comment, “Pure happiness.” 

Meanwhile, Pugh recently led the Red Stars to the NWSL Championship, where they fell to the Washington Spirit.
