Eric Lamaze surprised long-time girlfriend Alexis Stein by finally popping the question. The 2008 Canadian Olympic gold medalist proposed on Oct. 20, in Wellington, Fla., with only their beloved Pomeranian dog, Gigi, as a witness.
Stein, a 24-year-old musician and equestrian from New York City, said, “Yes!”
“She’s meant something to me for a long time, but it took a while for me to realize what I really had,” said Lamaze. “I’ve known Alexis for many years, and it was time to act on my feelings.”
Eric decided to propose following a long discussion and encouragement from his great friend and owner, Carlene Ziegler of Artisan Farms. Wedding plans are still in the works.
