It's official! Former Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon and his partner Jussi-Pekka Kajaala have said 'I do!'
Adam Rippon and Jussi-Pekka Kajaala recently revealed that they got married on New Years Eve!
Rippon shared on Instagram,
"SURPRISE WE ARE MARRIED One afternoon JP and I looked at each other and said the very classic *romantic* phrase of "let's just go do it now." So we did. It was just the three of us and it was perfect 12/31/21"
Rippon told PEOPLE,
"I think everybody knew that we were going to do it and I think nobody knew if we were going to give them a heads up or not. And I guess we didn't even know if we were giving ourselves a heads up,"
Kajaala also spoke to PEOPLE, sharing:
"We had some plans for the date, but then we just decided to do it sooner because New Year's Eve is not a big thing for us. We're in bed like 10:30. So then we decided that, oh, maybe going to use this day for something special like this and now we have a great meaning for that day."
The couple announced their engagement in Feb. 2021. They met on a dating app while Rippon was visiting Finland for a figure skating competition. They have been dating since 2017.
