    According to this interview with Don Baldwin in Goldenskate, John Baldwin and Rena Inoue are expecting a baby in November!

    After the proposal seen 'round the world, I never even heard anything about a wedding. . . Did you?

    I saw an actress on a talk show yesterday that said she has been engaged for the past 15 years and is happy to keep it that way. So if Rene and John are not married then it's not a big deal as long as they're happy.

    Mind you, it's quite possible that they DID get married. I just don't remember hearing anything about it. After such a public proposal, it would just seem kind of odd to be so quiet about getting married.

    How do you know they aren't married? They could've done it quietly. I have always liked them.

    I thought they were introduced at one of the cancer benefit shows as a married couple, but I don't know.

    In any event, congrats to them and I hope they have a lifetime of happiness.

    Is "quietly" in their vocabulary? It would have been splashed all over the net! :lol:

    Maybe it is in their vocabulary. They didn't even announce the pregnancy or anything. We still wouldn't know if not that interview with tiffany and Don. Maybe it was just a special occasion for him to propose on ice, and after retirement, they want to live their quiet private life :)

    From that same article, he's working in his family's used car business, and Rena is doing medical billing and coding.

    I'm sure they must be married - I remember John being all choked up about Rena's agreeing to marry him during the coverage of some competition, most likely US Nats.

    AND :rofl:that John is in the used car business. It's so in keeping with his persona, I can just him hustling cars. Though I wonder why the two of them did not go into coaching.

    The article (at Goldenskate.com) did not state John was in the used car business, it said he was working:

    "in the family's car business".

    I somehow read this wrong yesterday and thought it was referring to Rena, not the actress (which was really stupid of me because John didn't even propose 15 years ago, more like four), that's why I said it was weird that they didn't get married lol.

    Thanks for this article. While John Jr.'s hair has always driven me crazy cause I really dislike the length, I have always liked his and Rena's skating. I believe they really do love each other and wish them the very best with the baby.

    I've also met John's parents and found them to be very nice.

    It's the Baldwin parents' fault. Father and Mother are named John and Donna. They named their kids John, Donny and Donna. Who wouldn't confuse all of them constantly?!
