Awww, I'm not surprised! Wish them all the best in whatever they choose to do in the future
Katia Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov defended their Olympic title (88) in Norway in 94. After they had a baby! But no other in modern history. Dick Button did it in the 40s and Sonja Heine don't know when (50's?) and we have a Canadian figure skater Barbara Ann Scott who did it even earlier.

I have enjoyed watching you over the years so much! Hope you will still perform for a long time even if you don't compete. I hope you make lots of money and have a wonderful family life. You deserve it all. It's been a joy to watch you.

Figure Skating Is A Dangerous Sport
I noticed it with Hongbo. He looked terrific.
