Danica McKellar Is Engaged & Sorry 'Wonder Years' Fans, It's Not to Kevin Arnold
Winnie Cooper's all grown up! (I know that was a cheesy opener, but let me live.) In a new post on her personal Instagram today, former Wonder Years star Danica McKellar revealed that she's engaged, with a sweet photo of her wearing her new ring, captioned, "So...can you guess what my big news is??" Adorable.
McKellar also followed the photo up with a post on her Twitter, saying: "Yep, my amazing boyfriend Scott & I are engaged!! (He's the one @iamvalc did a shout out to on #DWTS) :) Hugs to you all!" She also posted a similar message to her Facebook, completing the social media trifecta that everyone must engage in after a major life event such as this one.
So, who's the lucky dude? None other than boyfriend Scott Sveslosky, who, apparently, Valentin Chmerkovskiy gave a shoutout to on Dancing With the Stars. According to People, Sveslosky is a partner at the international law firm Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton, LLP, so he's a good match for McKellar who is really super smart. Sorry, Wonder Years fans, I know it's not the Winnie Cooper/Kevin Arnold endgame everyone has hoped for, but at least rest assured knowing Winnie and Kevin had their moment.
Anyway, this will be the second marriage for McKellar: She first got married to composer Mike Verta in 2009, but the two divorced in 2012. She has one son with Verta, 3-year-old Draco.
