Mother of 2 and Olympic gold medalist, Kristi Yamaguchi, became the second female Dancing With The Stars winner on Tuesday night.
“This is the icing on the cake,” she stated. “I thank all the fans … and everyone who has made this a dream experience.”
She and dancing partner Mark Ballas scored a perfect 30 for their final dance, the jive. Judges said they were the most “consistent” dancing pair throughout the season.
36 year-old Kristi is married to Bret Hedican, a professional hockey player she met at the 1992 Winter Olympics. The couple have 2 daughters, Keara, 4 1/2, and Emma, 2 1/2. In 1996, Kristi established the Always Dream Foundation for children.
