It was a tough season for Sebastian Lletget. He spent most of 2017 on the sidelines after suffering a rare foot injury 15 minutes into his first competitive game with the U.S. national team in March.
Badly missed by the Los Angeles Galaxy, the defensive midfield star (photo above by Shaun Clark) is hoping for a very different 2018.
Frustrated at being unable to help his club or country, the 25-year-old former West Ham United youth player is confident he will soon be back to his best.
By his side through his entire injury ordeal was girlfriend Becky G, who played gay Power Ranger Trini in the 2017 movie and enjoyed massive success with her song ‘Mayores.’
On Instagram, Sebastian made it clear how much Becky meant to him, writing a note with the photo below: “Wouldn’t have been able to make it through the toughest year of my life without you.”
If Sebastian is grateful for his girlfriend’s support, the feeling is entirely mutual.
The singer told E! News: “When you have someone that is your best friend, your family, your lover, your homie and all in one, it’s like, ‘Wow.’ You don’t have to think about it, it doesn’t take much effort, you know what I mean? It’s just that support and it feels really beautiful.”
She even hinted that marriage may be in the couple’s future.
‘Relationships do take effort. He’s an athlete. I’m traveling and touring all the time. We’re both super busy, but when you don’t even have to think twice, you don’t have to doubt your relationship with someone and you can just be who you are and be inspired by that person to be better, that is something really beautiful, and I have never really experienced that before,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
“It wouldn’t happen this year, no,” she said of the possibility of an engagement. “But I would say ‘Yes,’ of course,” she added. “A day at a time.”
