Evan Lysacek & Duangpatra “Dang” Bodiratnangkura Engaged!

Former Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek is ready to take the next step in his relationship with his real estate developer girlfriend Duangpatra “Dang” Bodiratnangkura.

Last week, Evan popped the question to Dang on her birthday in Miami. He told People magazine, “I cannot express enough how lucky I feel to have found my perfect match in this incredible girl. She’s extraordinary in every way and she makes me a better man. We spent Thanksgiving and Christmas in Chicago with my family, and afterwards they said unanimously… ‘Marry her!’”

Of his love, Lysacek gushed, “Everyone who meets her falls in love with her. She’s not only brilliant and charming, but gorgeous inside and out.”
