Meryl Davis Dishes on Her Engagement to Fedor Andreev: The Proposal Happened on a Hike!

It’s only been a few days since Meryl Davis announced her engagement to Fedor Andreev and our excitement hasn’t gone away at all.

The Olympic ice dancer spoke to TeamUSA about how the proposal went down — and it’s was picture perfect!

“We went on a hike right by Stinson Beach [in California], which was a five- or six-mile hike,” Meryl recalls. “One of our favorite things to do is to go on a hike together, so we had the best time. As we approached the water, towards the end of the hike – which was coming towards the beach – I was looking towards the water and I turned around and he was down on one knee.”

So romantic!

“We both got a little bit teary,” Meryl says. “I was pretty surprised. It just was one of the most beautiful moments that I will definitely cherish for the rest of my life.”

Head to TeamUSA to see what Meryl said about her gorgeous ring!

Meryl Davis & Charlie White's Decision To Not Compete in 2018 Olympics Took Over Three Years

Meryl Davis & Charlie White's Decision To Not Compete in 2018 Olympics Took Over Three Years

Meryl Davis isn’t the one to make rash decision — especially when it comes to her career as an Olympic ice dancer.

So when she and partner Charlie White announced that they won’t be trying to defend their gold medal at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, you need to know that it took them a long time to get to that point.

“It isn’t so black and white,” she shared in a new interview. “Charlie and I took until about a month and a half, two months ago to decide for sure to announce that we weren’t going to go back to the Olympics.”

That’s over three years of weighing options and going through all their pro and cons lists.

Meryl adds, “For us, it really is a sort of intangible feeling…We took that time, and were sort of blown in the direction of new adventures.”

And adventures there are…when Meryl isn’t teaching young kids learn to skate through the Figure Skating in Harlem and Figure Skating in Detroit programs, she’s working on her anthropology degree, and next up? Stars on Ice!

Meryl is pictured below at the Figure Skating in Harlem event in NYC with Alex and Maia Shibutani, Nathan Chen and Ashley Wagner.

Meryl Davis & Charlie White Aren't Retired From Ice Dance At All

Meryl Davis & Charlie White Aren't Retired From Ice Dance At All

Meryl Davis and Charlie White might not be competing in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, but they’re definitely not retired.

The reigning Ice Dance Olympic champions won’t be competing in the upcoming games, but aren’t talking about retirement from the sport at all.

“We are not retired – we are just not competing at the Olympics this year,” Charlie had to clarify in an early morning interview. “That’s as far as we are willing to go.”

He adds about feeling an itch to go back into competition, “So many of our best memories come from those experiences, but the moments we were at competitions and watching everyone … if we felt we should be out there or not, ultimately, and pretty much every time, we came down to the conclusion that coming back to competition was not the right thing.”

“I think we are really proud of the journey, as a whole,” Meryl shared. “Things didn’t always go perfectly, but I’m really proud of the way we were able to learn from our mistakes, pick ourselves back up and, ultimately, I think that’s a really big component that led us to the top of the Olympic podium.”

Meryl Davis & Charlie White Will Not Compete at 2018 Olympics

This makes our hearts break — Meryl Davis and Charlie White will not be competing at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics next year.

The 2014 Ice Dance Olympic champions have made the decision not to return to the Olympic ice in South Korea next year and made the announcement this morning.

“I hate to be a little bit of a downer maybe for our fans, but we’ve decided not to compete at the Olympics,” Charlie shared on Today after skating at Rockefeller Center.

Meryl added, “It was one that took us three years to come up with. We gave ourselves a lot of time. With the ability to explore what we really felt, I think we’re really happy with that decision.”

While we’re sad they won’t be on the ice at the Olympics next year, they’re not completely saying goodbye.

This spring, Meryl and Charlie will be on the Stars on Ice tour.
