From medals to wedding bells! Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek is engaged to real estate developer Duangpatra вЂњDangвЂќ Bodiratnangkura.
The athlete, 33, shared with People on Monday, April 8, that he had popped the question in Miami on April 1-Bodiratnangkura's birthday.
вЂњI cannot express enough how lucky I feel to have found my perfect match in this incredible girl,вЂќ he told the magazine. вЂњShe's extraordinary in every way and she makes me a better man. Everyone who meets her falls in love with her. She's not only brilliant and charming but gorgeous inside and out.вЂќ
He's not the only one who thinks so: The Chicago native also revealed that after spending both Thanksgiving and Christmas in his hometown, his family was keen to have her as a daughter-in-law. вЂњAfterwards they said unanimouslyвЂ¦ 'Marry her!'вЂќ he revealed.
The 2010 Olympic gold medalist hinted at the pair's happy news on Instagram on Friday, April 5. вЂњI'm the luckiest man alive,вЂќ he captioned a sweet shot of his fiancГ©e cuddled close to his chest that showed off her massive princess-cut engagement ring.
Lysacek's comments section blew up with well-wishes from the likes of Olympians Gracie Gold, Sasha Cohen, Nastia Liukin, Lindsey Vonn, Johnny Weir, and Kristi Yamaguchi-just to name a few.
The skater thanked his friends and fans on Sunday, April 7. вЂњDang and I are really excited!! And so happy to have support from you all, our family & friends,вЂќ he captioned a shot of himself dressed in a dapper suit with his wife-to-be in a two-piece bridal jumpsuit at the Four Seasons Hotel in Surfside, Florida.
The twosome, who plan to marry in December at Bangkok's Nai Lert Park Heritage Home-a part of Bodiratnangkura's family estate -met way back in 2011 when they were introduced by mutual pals.
Though the pair вЂњImmediately connected,вЂќ it wasn't until 2018 that they took things to the next level. вЂњWe've remained in close touch through the years, but really reconnected last summer,вЂќ Lysacek told People. вЂњ(We) have managed to live between our two cities (New York and Los Angeles) since.вЂќ
Congratulations to the happy couple!
