Ice skating superstar Michelle Kwan is engaged to Lt. Clay Pell, a U.S. Coast Guardsman and director for strategic planning on the National Security staff at the White House, People Magazine reported.
The two met in April 2011. Pell proposed Sept. 3, on Block Island, off the coast of Rhode Island and told the magazine he had no doubt Kwan would say yes.
According to Pell’s bio on the 2011-2012 White House Fellows website, he graduated first in his class from the Coast Guard Direct Commission Officer School. As a judge advocate general for the Coast Guard, he regularly works with China to improve military diplomacy, teaches classes on human rights and military justice and has prosecuted crimes for the Marine Corps.
