Lindsey Vonn popped the question to hockey star P.K. Subban.

“Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!! On our 2 year anniversary, in a “non traditional” move, I asked PK to marry me and he said, Yes," Vonn tweeted on Christmas Day. “Yes (bashful emoji) ! Women aren’t the only ones who should get engagement rings!"

The former downhill ski racer closed the tweet with the hashtags “MerryChristmas" and “equality."

Vonn linked a picture of herself and Subban with the ring, with the couple wearing matching striped pajamas in front of a Christmas tree with three dogs in the foreground. She also posted a close-up of Subban flashing the ring, with the words “Drip drip” and a blue teardrop.


Vonn also said on social media in August that they were engaged.

The 35-year-old Vonn recently retired from a skiing career that included three Olympic medals, four World Cup titles, and 82 World Cup race wins, a record for a woman.

The 30-year-old Subban won the 2013 Norris Trophy with Montreal as the NHL’s top defenseman. He was traded to New Jersey from Nashville in June.

Vonn previously had a high-profile relationship with Tiger Woods. She was married to former ski racer Thomas Vonn in 2007, and kept his last name after they separated in 2013.
