Olympic gold medal ice dancer and figure skater Charlie White is getting hitched.

And, no, the bride-to-be isn’t Meryl Davis, no matter how much the pair looked like a couple during the Sochi 2014 Olympics.

White, 26, proposed to his longtime girlfriend Tanith Belbin, also a figure skating champion, in Hawaii.

The date hasn’t been set, but one thing is certain, White tweeted, attaching a picture of his pup, DJ:

“Everyone's asking about wedding plans, but as of right now only one thing is certain- DJ will be giving me away. pic.twitter.com/LzE3S6cXTJ

Aw.

White grew up in Bloomfield Hills, just a few miles away from Davis, who grew up in West Bloomfield. White and Davisannounced Monday that they’re taking a year off from professional skating. They trained at the Arctic Edge in canton, where Belbin also trained.
