The Wonder Years' Danica McKellar Is Engaged!


Winnie Cooper is getting married — though, sadly, not to Kevin Arnol). Danica McKellar, who starred as a longtime love interest in the classic sitcom The Wonder Years, is engaged to her boyfriend, Scott Svelosky.

McKellar, who has written math books and competed on the most recent season of Dancing With the Stars, announced the big news on Twitter and Instagram yesterday.

She posted the photo seen above with the caption, "So...can you guess what my big news is??" before confirming what everyone would have guessed with a tweet. After all, who could miss that gorgeous engagement ring?!

As her tweet suggests, her DWTS partner Val Chmerkovskiy had shouted out Svelosky, a lawyer, during their season of the show. In one of their rehearsal videos, Chmerkovskiy said that he owed a mysterious "Scott" a thank you for being so understanding in allowing him to dance with his beautiful girlfriend.

"Scott and I are thrilled," she said in an official statement, while also sharing that they plan to get married later this year. As she and her future husband have children from previous relationships, their union will be something of a Brady Bunch situation. In her statement, McKellar said that she's "looking forward to merging our families." McKellar has a son with her ex-husband, while Svelosky also has a son from a previous marriage.
