Subban used the identical picture, and far of the identical language, in a put up he shared across the similar time Tuesday afternoon, and he added: “Lindsey is one of the kindest and caring people I do know. I will always treasure our time as a pair collectively and the many laughs we shared.”
The bulletins got here barely more than a year after Vonn, now 36, declared on social media that she had introduced Subban, now 31, with an engagement ring.
“We discuss equality however actions speak louder than phrases,” she wrote on the time. “Males ought to get engagement rings too and that is what PK deserves.”
Subban had proposed to Vonn in August 2019, shortly after which she told Vogue: “I’d been married before, so I used to be fairly hesitant to let myself think that I might discover someone that I’d need to be married to once more. After just a few months of courting, I knew he was the one I wanted to be with, although.”
Vonn, nee Lindsey Kildow, was married to a different former member of the U.S. Ski Team, Thomas Vonn, from 2007 to 2013. Shortly after their divorce, she dated golf celebrity Tiger Woods, but they announced the end of their relationship in May 2015.
Vonn and Subban, a decorated NHL defenseman, stated they met at a Nickelodeon sports-awards present in 2017 and started their romance a number of months later. In October, she stated the coronavirus pandemic was delaying their plans to get married.
“We’re kind of in a holding pattern right now,” Vonn told People on the time. “With covid, it simply appears like there’s no good choice, you already know? I don’t have a timeline or a plan; we’re simply kind of going to wait and see. … Neither of us are actually anxious about after we’re going to get married. We know it’s going to occur, so we’re not in a rush about it.”
A 3-time Olympic medalist — including a 2010 gold in the downhill — and a four-time World Cup total titlist, Vonn cited a spate of severe injuries in asserting her retirement last year.
“My body is broken past repair and it isn’t letting me have the final season I dreamed of,” she wrote then. “My body is screaming at me to STOP and it’s time for me to listen.”
