2. They displayed a lot of PDA at the 2018 CMT Awards.

5. Vonn made a funny speech about relationships while she was presenting at the 2018 CMT Awards. 

"When you're a celebrity everyone's always trying to figure out who you're dating... Does anyone know who I'm dating?" she asked the crowd. "I'm going to come clean and confess who really has my heart and has had my heart since I was 10 years old: the Backstreet Boys!"


Well, she sure fooled us.

6. Vonn and Subban recently got engaged.

On August 26, 2019, Vonn and Subban walked the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards, and the former Olympic skiier had some new bling on her left ring finger to show off.

The emerald ring features a large rectangular stone set on a thin silver band. Green is special to both of them — it is Lindsey's favorite color and the emerald is Subban's birthstone. 

7. The athletes both proposed to each other.

In December 2019, Vonn revealed that she actually proposed to Subban as well.

Although Subban was the first to propose, Vonn stated on her Instagram page that she "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.”
