Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue electrified Canadians and people around the world with their incredible on-ice chemistry during the 2010, 2014 and 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, Sochi and PyeongChang. Fans were convinced the ice dancers, who went on to become the most decorated of all time, were dating. Just look at them together:
But we now know that’s not the case since Scott is engaged… and it’s not to Tessa.
On Wednesday, Scott revealed he’s set to marry Jackie Mascarin , his former skating partner before he and Tessa became a pair in 1997. She was on hand when Scott and Tessa were given Canada’s Walk of Fame Hometown Stars, which is when he let his big news slip.
Scott and Tessa were in his hometown of Ilderton, Ont., where his star was unveiled. Jackie was there as well. Scott thanked his aunt, Carol, who was his first skating coach and put him and Tessa together.
“She’s pretty good at picking partners, I will say that,” he said, before dropping an absolute truth bomb (at this point, we encourage you, dear reader, to take a deep breath): “And the first one that she gave me is now my fiancée, so that works alright.”
