I could help but notice that, in two separate TV shows in the past days, skaters were introduced as "wife of/husband of" or "married," even though they were long thought to be just engaged or 'living together.' I refer to:
1. Rena Inoue/John Baldwin, Jr. - In yesterday's Kaleidoscope special, they were introduced as married. (And here I thought that they were still just engaged after the dramatic on-ice proposal years ago!)
2. Katia Gordeeva/Ilya Kullik - In the recent Holiday Moments on Ice special on Thanksgiving weekend, host Brian Boitano introduced Katya as "the wife" of Ilya Kullik before her solo and, I think, did the same for Ilya ("the husband of..."). So they really, really tied the knot, officially, with legal document?
Belated congratulations to both happy couples!
