Figure skating fans who worshipped Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue will have to learn to celebrate Moir’s engagement to former skating partner Jackie Mascarin.
It was revealed on Wednesday night that Moir and Mascarin are engaged. This may come as a blow to diehards who had hoped Moir and his current skating partner Virtue would have a fairytale romance. Moir and Virtue were in his hometown of Ilderton, Ont. to receive plaques from Canada’s Walk of Fame.
Moir thanked his aunt and former coach Carol, his current partner Virtue and his “fiancée” Mascarin. “She’s pretty good at picking partners, I will say that,” he said of Carol. He noted how the partnership with Tessa “seemed to last a little bit longer” and “the first one that she gave me is now my fiancée so that works alright.”
Virtue appeared to clap supportively as Moir broke the news about his engagement. Moir has not addressed the engagement news publicly, but Virtue is already looking for a “plus one for an upcoming wedding.”
