Meryl Davis (L) and Fedor Andreev, seen here on a trip to Tokyo in June 2017, were engaged on July 13, 2017.

 

Olympic ice dance champion Meryl Davis announced her engagement to former Canadian skater Fedor Andreev via Instagram Sunday night, posting a photo of the two embracing with the caption “7/13/17,” acknowledging that they were engaged Thursday while on a trip in California.

Davis, 30, competed at the 2010 and 2014 Olympic Winter Games, earning three medals with partner Charlie White: ice dance silver in 2010, team bronze in 2014 and ice dance gold in 2014, marking the United States’ first-ever Olympic ice dance gold medal.

She went on to win season 18 of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Andreev, 35, is the son of Davis’ longtime coach Marina Zoueva. He has dual Canadian and Russian citizenship, and has competed for both countries. As a men’s singles skater, Andreev earned bronze at the 2003 Canadian championships. He and ice dance partner Jana Khokhlova finished fourth at the 2011 Russian championships in his first season in that discipline; he retired from injury in September of that year.

Davis and Andreev have been dating for more than six years; they reside in Birmingham, Michigan, with their dog, Bilbo.
