Olympic figure skating gold medalist Tara Lipinski is engaged to boyfriend Todd Kapostasy!

On Monday, the FOX Sports producer got down on one knee and popped the question to Lipinski, who said yes!

Tara shared the news on Instagram with a pic of her diamond sparkler on Tuesday, saying, "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 also revealed how Todd proposed to her. "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.”

After news broke about the engagement, Todd shared his side of the story on Instagram. "[Seven] months ago I was fortunate enough to be presented with a Sports Emmy award. Of the 45+ Emmys given out that night, @taralipinski happened to hand me mine. I didn't think much of it — aside from the fact she that she looked great in her blue dress. The next day I discovered that my aunt had become friends with Tara while covering the Olympics a few years back. It took a little convincing, but @cjansing eventually agreed to introduce us. I'd imagine there are a thousand things that had to happen to get us on that stage together back in May. Crazy how life works.”

Olympic skater Johnny Weir congratulated the couple following the engagement on Instagram, saying, "Congratulations to my partner in crime @taralipinski and her partner in crime @toddkap on their engagement! Wishing you both so much joy, understanding, patience and unbridled passion! ❤️."
