After being crowned the breakout star of USA’s Olympic hockey team, scoring the game winning goal vs Russia, there was one special lady T.J. Oshie couldn’t wait to share his glory moment… his fiancé, Lauren Cosgrove.
…Yes, I said fiancé.
But unfortunately for the newly engaged couple, Cosgrove was unable to make the trip out to Sochi to witness her future-husband become a real life hockey hero due to the simple fact that she is 8 months pregnant with their first child. A baby girl to be exact.
“I might go into labor,” Cosgrove joked about, as she watched the intense game against Russia from the comfort of her own home in Missouri.
So where does the couples love story begin?
The St. Louis Blues player met his fiancé while his college hockey team, the University of North Dakota, played in Minnesota, where she was currently residing.
Three years later, the twosome are engaged to be married next summer and are expecting their little princess on St. Patricks Day. All while Oshie is competing for a gold medal. But the dad-to-be admitted that having a girl is definitely scarier then his intense shoot out against Russia.
“[Between the two] it’s gotta be the daughter,” T.J. said. “She’s going to give me a run for my money!”
