It's hard to beat an Olympic gold medal, but a beautiful diamond ring may come close and now, Tara Lipinski has both. The former professional figure skater shared on Tuesday that she and boyfriend Todd Kapostasy got engaged with a photo of them kissing and showing off her brand new ring.

On the Instagram photo she wrote, "My life changed forever last night. I feel so lucky that I get to spend the rest of my life loving my best friend and love of my life. I've had many monumental happy days in my life but this by far is my happiest. I love you @toddkap."


Lipinski shared the story of his very creative proposal on Instagram as well. She wrote, "Todd knows I love holiday window displays so after a beautiful dinner and on our way for a drink @theplazahotel he said there was window there he thought I'd like to see....he somehow convinced the hotel to let him take one of their displays over and this painting of him proposing to me in front of my home in California was inside. By the time I turned to him he was on one knee....this is one surprise and Christmas that I will never forget."

Kapostasy, a Fox Sports producer, also shared a few photos of their skating date at Central Park before the big Plaza proposal. He wrote, "I was nice enough to give @taralipinski a private lesson in Central Park today. Kid's got potential."

He also shared a snap of them kissing after their engagement with a very sweet caption: "I've never been more happy in my entire life then when @taralipinski said yes to marrying me last night. She's the most beautiful, passionate, talented, and loyal person I've ever met, and I'm the luckiest guy on the planet right now."

Sounds like a perfect match both on and off the rink. Congrats to the happy couple!
