Tessa Virtue and Morgan Rielly

Tessa Virtue, an ice skater, and Morgan Rielly, an NHL superstar, have come one step closer to saying “I Do.” Tessa revealed the engagement on the Without Losing Your Cool podcast. During the interview, Tessa explained that she met Rielly through a mutual friend, but rumors of them dating began at the start of COVID-19 when they joined an Instagram Live together during quarantine. Rielly feels “very fortunate” about the engagement, per his interview with Toronto Sun’s Lance Hornby.

Michelle Money and Mike Weir

Bachelor in Paradise alum Michelle Money and Mike Weir announced their engagement on January 8th on Michelle’s Instagram. She wrote, “After dating for almost 7 years- we both want to take that next step and tie the knot.” Mike popped the question while they were on vacation in New Zealand. Ever since going public in August 2016, the two have been active on social media as a couple. Mike and Michelle began dating the same year that Michelle ended her relationship with Cody Sattler, her co-star on Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars. We can’t wait to see the wedding pics!
