So, in this article, know more about Tara Lipinski’s husband and their marital life.
Met At An Award Function
Life is full of surprises, and we have no idea what it has got to offer us. For Lipinski, the statement suits really well, and here’s why.
The couple had their first encounter on May 5, 2015, at the Sports Emmy. She was one of the presenters of the function and presented Todd with one of his Emmys. However, Tara recalled to ET Online that she did not remember meeting him. Likewise, Kapostasy also did not think much of it, but he noticed that she looked beautiful in her blue dress.
Then, the next day, Tara Lipinski’s beau mentioned to his aunt, Senior White House Correspondent Chris Jansing that she was the one who presented him with the award. During the conversation, he discovered that his aunt and Lipinski had become friends while covering the Olympics a few years back. He then convinced her to introduce them.
Later, the duo decided to go on a date in May 2015. Todd thought it was going to be their first date. But roughly 24 hours before the said date, Tara emailed him notifying how she was bringing 18 friends as well. After that, the pair went out on many dates, and their relationship progressed.
A Lovely Engagement
As already mentioned, Tara and Todd met at the Sports Emmy in May 2015 and started dating the same month as well. Seven months later, in December 2015, Todd got down on his one knee and popped the question.
Tara Lipinski’s then-boyfriend planned a New York City-themed engagement. As part of their pre-engagement activities, Todd took his lover to Central Park for skating. Then, in December 2015, the pair went on a dinner date. Todd knew Tara loved holiday window displays. The couple had gone to Manhattan’s iconic Plaza Hotel, and he said there was a window he thought she’d like to see.
There, Mr. Kapostasy convinced the hotel to let him take one of their displays over. It was the painting of him proposing to her in front of her home in California. And, when the commentator turned around, her partner was already on his knee.
