    Awww Michelle :cheer: Quite emotional at this news. Seriously it seems only 2 minutes ago she was doing this!

    Congratulations to Michelle and Clay (but for the love of the skategods pleeeease keep your name Michelle. You're a living legend as the Kweeeen not the Pelllllllllll :yikes:

    I'm so proud of what she has done in her life, and she's still so young. They are going to have some seriously over-achieving kiddies that's for sure! What a woman!! :swoon:

    So will we see Danny walking her down the aisle? Or will Michelle opt for a civil ceremony?

    This MUST be telecast. Must, must, must. I'd be will to do 'pay per view'!!!

    Or maybe Icenetwork.com will do the honors?

    Guessing it will have two presidents/wives, Washington folks, military, skating, athletes, perhaps some school friends.... Or maybe just family? Wish I could go.

    Wishing them both the very best!

    Phil Hersh just tweeted that Michelle texted him and said there is no wedding date yet.

    I think if it was up to Michelle, it would be a low-key affair. Wouldn't surprise me if we heard about the wedding after-the-fact! (Assuming Mr. Kwan is a low-key kinda guy ...)

    O-

    So happy for Michelle and her fiance! The Kween of Hearts has at last found someone who won hers. :saint: :cheer:

    When I read about Clay Pell in the other FSU thread that mentioned MK and he were dating, I had a feeling Clay was a keeper! The fact they have shared values, goals and equally astonishing accomplishments speaks volumes. And then when LOVE blooms, I guess it does make everything all so simple and so right. Congrats to Michelle and her Man.

    Ma Belle, Michelle Kwan Pell. Sounds golden to me.

    Re being able to see the wedding... I WISH. Michelle and Clay are obviously both low-key and family-oriented so maybe there will be a few pics released to the press, but I seriously doubt tv cameras. Wouldn't it be wonderful tho' for some fortunate long-time MKF fans to be invited. The guest list will probably also include close skating buds like Brian B, Evan, Vera, and perhaps Kristi, Dick Button, Peggy Fleming, Rafael Artunian, Scott Williams, Lori Nichol and Frank Carroll. Our Michelle moves in a very different world these days tho' far beyond skating.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...738d8fa-fc77-11e1-b153-218509a954e1_blog.html

    There are close-ups of Clay Pell on the Internet (just google Michelle now and an image of Clay in a tux also appears under Images ;)) I think they are an attractive, not to mention charming, accomplished and down-to-earth couple. They are so low-key, I haven't seen any pics of them together yet.

    As a Kwan fan, I wish I could be there to see it too. But that's just the momentary fan giddiness in me. Michelle generally keeps her private life private, with little fanfare. I think a magazine article with some pics of the wedding is about the most we fans can expect. So the rational part of me is fine with that. I am happy with just the knowledge that she's happy.

    Congratulations to the Kween :)

    Clay in tux:

    http://newportseen.com/archived-news/governors-ball-2010/ scroll far down

    MK tidbit -- :lol: re the Seinfeld joke she loves, which is very revealing about her nerves re public speaking:

    http://espn.go.com/blog/playbook/trending/post/_/id/2970/michelle-kwan-on-dwts-life-after-skating

    I seriously doubt the DWTS thing will ever happen. Running for public office, or either campaigning for her husband might just come first. ;)

    ETA:
    Another engagement news blurb with accompanying photo. I love Michelle in that dress (worn to WH State dinner in January 2011).

    http://www.christianpost.com/news/michelle-kwan-engaged-who-is-clay-pell-81496/

    Double ETA:
    Found a link on MKF to a photo of Michelle and Clay together!!! The person who discovered it came about it randomly in an alumni publication:

    http://web.salve.edu/news/rfn/archive/Vol39no1Summer12.pdf (scroll down to page 40)

    They do indeed look good together (even with the third person in the photo).

    AND a vid on youtube showing People mag photos, including the ring!

    So very happy for her. She is someone you can't help but admire. Her biggest dream may have just come true.
