Former Olympic skier Linsey Vonn put a ring on her king. Vonn announced via her Instagram account that she re-proposed to her fiancè New Jersey Devil star, P.K. Subban on Christmas day revealing, “and he said yes.”
Now before some of you lose your traditional minds, Subban and Vonn have been engaged since August. The All-Star defensemen initially proposed to her, and she said yes. In her post, Vonn stated that she “returned the favor” on the couple’s 2nd anniversary, and in the spirit of equality, she feels “men should get engagement rings too, and this is what PK deserves.”
In the picture, the couple is very much in the holiday spirit rocking matching pajamas in the front of their Christmas tree with their three lovable dogs. P.K. is happily showing off his new rock that Vonn got him.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!! On our 2 year anniversary I returned the favor and asked PK to marry me… and he said yes ☺️ We talk about equality but actions speak louder than words. Men should get engagement rings too and this is what PK deserves. Can’t wait to marry you babe ❤️🐻 #merrychristmas #happyanniversary #equality #raisethebar
Vonn is closing her year on a good note. Back in February, she was forced to retire due to injuries leaving the sport she loved with 82 World Cup wins. She was just three wins shy of tying Ingemar Stenmark’s record of 85 wins.

It’s been an emotional 2 weeks making the hardest decision of my life, but I have accepted that I cannot continue ski racing. I will compete at the World Championships in Downhill and SG next week in Åre, Sweden and they will be the final races of my career. I have always pushed the limits of ski racing and it has allowed me to have amazing success but also dramatic crashes. I have never wanted the storyline of my career to be about injuries and because of that I decided not to tell anyone that I underwent surgery this past spring. A large portion of cartilage that had delaminated from my bone was removed. My crash in Lake Louise last year was much more painful than I let on, but I continued to race because I wanted to win a medal in the Olympics for my late grandfather. Again, I rehabbed my way back this summer and I felt better than I had in a long time. Then I crashed in Copper this November and injured my left knee, tearing my LCL plus sustaining 3 fractures. Despite extensive therapy, training and a knee brace, I am not able make the turns necessary to compete the way I know I can. My body is broken beyond repair and it isn't letting me have the final season I dreamed of. My body is screaming at me to STOP and it’s time for me to listen. Honestly, retiring isn’t what upsets me. Retiring without reaching my goal is what will stay with me forever. However, I can look back at 82 World Cup wins, 20 World Cup titles, 3 Olympic medals, 7 World Championship medals and say that I have accomplished something that no other woman in HISTORY has ever done, and that is something that I will be proud of FOREVER! I always say, “Never give up!” So to all the the kids out there, to my fans who have sent me messages of encouragement to keep going… I need to tell you that I’m not giving up! I’m just starting a new chapter. Don’t lose faith in your dreams, keep fighting for what you love, and if you always give everything you have you’ll be happy no matter what the outcome. Thank you for the amazing years, for always supporting me, and for making my job so fun. Can’t wait to see some of you in the finish in Åre where I will give it my all one last time. Love always, Lindsey

Congrats to the couple again, fellas do you think this will ever become the norm? Would you let your lady propose to you? We would love to hear your opinion on this.
