Former Olympian Michelle Kwan Is Engaged
Former Olympian, Michelle Kwan, is engaged.
Michelle confirmed her engagement to People Magazine, saying that boyfriend Clay Pell popped the question over Labor Day weekend.
Pell, 30, is a director for strategic planning on the National Security staff at the White House. The two first met in April 2011. “It was a simple decision and it made sense, that’s what’s so exciting to me,” Kwan says of the proposal. “We are working together as a team, like in [pair skating].”
Pell, a JAG and Lieutenant in the U.S. Coast Guard, is the grandson of the late Rhode Island Sen. Claiborne Pell, who established Pell Grants for college 40 years ago.
Congrats to Michelle & Clay.
