Are Christen Press and Tobin Heath dating?

The ‘stanning’ for Press and Heath is something that has been happening for a while now, despite the fact that none of them have ever opened up about dating each other. Some die-hard shippers like Instagrammer @preath23172317 have been posting celebratory pictures of the pair since March 2020. Meanwhile, in February this year, Twitter user @JulsVal_and_Gal posted a Valentine’s Day photo of Press and Heath in an effort to prove the duo were romantically involved. 



 



 

Press and Heath have also shared on occasion pictures of themselves celebrating some holiday together. Seeing that they are also on the Manchester United team, it is not surprising that the duo spends a lot of time together and have become fast friends. When Press shared an IG post on December, 24, 2020, of them celebrated Christmas together with a large number of gifts with the caption “Merry Christmas everyone & you’re welcome," fans immediately went into a frenzy, giving rise to another rumor that they had sealed the deal.



 

Heath a devout Christian

Despite the rumors, neither Press nor Heath has come out as gay, much less admit that they are dating each other. Heath hails from a strong Christian upbringing. She has stated that she has deepened her faith since her college days in North Carolina.

"I can’t even imagine going through life without my relationship with Jesus. So much of it is me relying on Him and me needing Him, not just in those crazy circumstances but in the day-to-day activities. During that time at the World Cup, it was a rollercoaster ride, but it was neat to just see His hand on that. It’s more than just winning or losing. There are so many relationships that go deeper than that. He has a plan in it all. You have to trust that," Heath once told Belief Net. However, that is not to say that no prominent Christian has ever come out as a homosexual in the past.

However, Press and Heath have joined forces with Megan Rapinoe and Meghan Klingenberg on a gender-neutral lifestyle brand called Re-Inc. Their ManU teammate Leah Galton told Guardian that Press and Heath had a transformative effect on their team. “Christen Press and Tobin Heath have changed minds and our mindset,” Galton said. However, she was referring to the pair's style of playing and other holistic causes. “They’ve brought a different, much more positive, mentality. They’ve given us belief and the confidence to keep pushing forward, to create and to take more chances," she said.
