Lindsey Vonn and her boyfriend are Instagram official.
The Olympic skier’s new boyfriend is Kenan Smith, an assistant wide receivers coach for the Los Angeles Rams. Smith posted a sweet pic of Vonn to Instagram Sunday after the Rams’ 26-10 loss to the New England Patriots. (After a game like that, the caption was bound to be a little somber.)
“The only good thing about this weekend in New England was having my beautiful girlfriend there, & seeing the [people] I call friends,” Smith wrote.
Not a bad silver lining.
Vonn, who is currently recovering from a training accident, was a little quicker to post about the budding relationship, including Smith in a Thanksgiving Insta collage.
“Even though I’m injured, again, I have so much to be thankful for; incredible friends, an amazing boyfriend, my family and a lot of loyal supporters,” she wrote.
Tomorrow is thanksgiving so before my family gets here I want to take the time and give thanks. Even though I'm injured, again, I have so much to be thankful for; incredible friends, an amazing boyfriend, my family and a lot of loyal supporters. With my Uncle's passing it reminds me even more to appreciate what we have in life because you never know what the future holds. I hope everyone has a wonderful turkey day! With love, lindsey
In an interview with E! News in October, the champion downhill skier admitted that the intense media interest in her relationship with Woods made it “really hard” to be together.
Ultimately, though, she said the experience taught her to shrug off negativity from outsiders.
“That’s one thing that made me stronger,” Vonn told E!. “Being able to block out the noise and block out other people’s opinions, and honestly it doesn’t matter what anybody else thinks as long as you’re happy.”
Nailed it, Linds.
