Olympic figure skater Michelle Kwan is engaged to Clay Pell.
According to People.com, Pell proposed on September 3 while vacationing on Block Island off Rhode Island.
“It was a simple decision and it made sense, that’s what’s so exciting to me,” Kwan tells People of the proposal. “We are working together as a team, like in [pair skating].”
Kwan, who plans to wed “sooner than later,” hopes to wear a wedding dress by Vera Wang.
Pell is the director for strategic planning on the National Security staff at the White House.
The couple have been dating for one year.
