Lindsey Vonn engaged to P.K. Subban: skier received EMERALD ring at proposal in front of three dogs

Lindsey Vonn and P.K Subban are engaged.

A spokesperson confirmed on Friday that the 34-year-old Olympic skier and 30-year-old New Jersey Devils defenceman are set to wed.

The happy couple detailed their low-key proposal to Vogue as they revealed that Lindsey’s new jewelry is emerald for reasons that are special to the both of them.  

P.K. told the monthly that he went to his go-to jeweler, XIV Karats in Beverly Hills, and picked up the ring on August 14 with that particular gemstone color of choice as her favorite color is green and emerald is his birthstone.

Though their relationship has been in the spotlight since it began over a year ago, the hockey star opted for a more low-key proposal at their home in front of their three dogs. 

The three-time NHL All-Star explained: ‘I got the ring and said, “You know what? I’m just going to do it home.” Everything kind of came together on that day. Everyone says the stars aligned—well, it was actually a full moon. 

‘I was worried because I knew she would want to be dressed up and not in her pajamas, and it just so happened she had a business meeting, so she was fully dressed up.’

Vonn  and Subban have been dating since early 2018 and were first spotted canoodling at a Nashville Predators game in April of that year. 

The couple headlined a charity event on Thursday held at the Holt Renfrew Ogilvie boutique where 10 percent of luxury brand sales during the night were donated to The P.K. Subban Foundation, the Montreal Gazette reported.

The ice hockey pro played for the Montreal Canadiens from 2009 to 2016 and had pledged in 2015 to raise $10 million for Montreal Children’s Hospital.

Even though he has moved on, first signing to the Nashville Predators and then traded this past June to the New Jersey Devils, Subban continues to honor his promise.

Vonn, who recently retired from alpine ski racing, looked amazing in a sheer black blouse with a pussy bow that she wore over a black bra.

She wasn’t seen wearing an engagement ring.  

The 34-year-old four-time World Cup champion and Olympic gold medalist – who previously dated Tiger Woods – added tailored black patterned trousers and shiny black shoes.

Subban, 30, was unmissable in a wide-brimmed brown hat that he paired with a brown patterned shirt done up at the collar. 

He gushed to the media at the event about his girlfriend, telling the Montreal Gazette that Vonn has ‘been amazing and supporting me throughout the whole summer.’

‘Lindsey, she’s a beast in everything she does,’ he added. ‘I talk to Lindsey a lot cause she has her charity as well.’

Since the start of their relationship, Vonn hasn’t been shy about sharing proof of their love via Instagram. 

Back in September 2018, Vonn called Subban her ‘handsome date’ in the caption of a picture they took with comedian Kevin Hart.

Later that month, Vonn told reporters at a taping of the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Sports Awards that her love with Subban ‘is not a Bieber situation,’ referring to Justin Bieber’s marriage to Hailey Baldwin after just a few weeks of dating.

‘I’ve been married before. So I’m – we’re enjoying every moment. We love each other very much, but there’s no reason to jump ahead and get ahead of yourself,’ she said.

Prior to Subban, Vonn dated NFL assistant coach Kenan Smith for a year before they split in 2017.

The Olympic medalist was also involved with golf legend Tiger Woods for three years before they went their separate ways in 2015. 

In 2011, she separated from fellow skiier Thomas Vonn after four years of marriage. 

Subban, on the other hand, has stayed mum about his personal life in the years prior to dating Vonn. 

Vonn was spotted at an airport in Montreal on Friday wearing a white muscle tee and army-green silk pants. 

She paired the look with white sneakers and carried multiple pieces of luggage.

One of the pieces of luggage was an oblong package that looked like a hat box by Smithbilt hats potentially containing the wide-brimmed hat that Subban wore to the event the day before.
