The couple celebrated their milestone anniversary during an exciting month for Clark.

On April 15, the record-breaking basketball player was the No. 1 overall pick by the Indiana Fever in the 2024 WNBA draft.

At a post-draft celebration, Clark gushed over McCaffrey on her Instagram Story, calling him her “fave person in the world.”

McCaffrey has been by Clark’s side every step of the way over the last year, including when she ended her final season with the Iowa Hawkeyes earlier this month after the team’s heartbreaking Final Four loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks.

After the upset, he took to social media to share a snap of her walking off the court for the final time as a collegiate athlete.

“My GOAT,” he wrote alongside the photo.
