    According to People Magazine. To Clay Pell.

    Kwan, 32, tells PEOPLE that she is engaged to Clay Pell, 30, 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]."

    Adds Pell: "It was amazing from the very beginning how in sync our way of thinking is, our basic values and our sense of priorities. We just both got each other."

    Pell proposed on Block Island, off the coast of Rhode Island.

    He's the grandson of Sen Claiborne Pell (Pell Grants), and speaks Chinese, too. Has worked for the CIA among other employers. He's only 30, so based on what he's accomplished, he's probably extremely smart.

    Well if she can't get UMBS, then this guy sounds ok too. :)

    Thrilled that she found someone who makes her so happy and seems to be so committed to many of the values and causes that matter to Michelle. May they have nothing but happiness! :cheer:

    Yep, I think that's her plan. She only has to wait 3 more years until she's 35!

    I thought I was accomplished with a Bachelors and two Masters degrees. Looking at his CV I feel like a complete slacker. :eek:

    Maybe she can pull some strings through her friend Condi and through her fiance's family, win both parties' nominations, and be a shoo-in for Prez. Purple and gold bedazzled campaign signs, here we come! YES WE KWAN!!! :cheer2:

    Sarah and Drew just tweeted,

    That sound you hear is hearts breaking all over the world. Congratulations, Michelle Kwan! http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20628947,00.html …​

    My first thought was that I hope UMBS was sitting down.

    Congratulations to Kwan and Pell!
