Kurt Browning is a Canadian figure skater, choreographer, and commentator. As a figure skater, he has won the World Champion title and Canadian national champion title four times. We don’t get to see such talented personality very often.
But we wouldn't be dealing with Kurt's professional life instead of you we bring you details about Kurt’s relationship with his wife Sonia Rodriguez. Just stay with us!
How did Kurt and Sonia first meet?
Do you guys believe in destiny? Well if you don’t you will after hearing the story of how Kurt and Sonia met. The happily married couple first met at a reception in 1991 in Edmonton at the Royal Glenora Club.
The funny thing is Sonia wasn’t supposed to be at the reception but, she borrowed a dress from her friend and went anyway. While Kurt also didn’t want to attend the reception and was peeking from a corner to see what was going on. Kurt was spotted by his friends and was asked to join them. And yes Sonia was also in that group and the two of them met.

The next day The National Ballet in which Sonia is a principal dancer, came to watch Kurt perform and it was their second meeting. It was followed by lunch along with their friends. The third time they met was during Sonia’s show and Kurt was really impressed by her performance.
Kurt married Sonia Rodriguez
Before Kurt and Sonia got married on June 30, 1996, they dated for 5 years. One of the most difficult things to do is asking someone to marry you. Even the most confident person gets nervous to utter the four words Will You Marry Me even when in a private setting.
But Kurt is no ordinary man. When he asked Sonia to marry him, he did it like a champion. He popped the question in front of 16,000 people and national TV audience.

Going through the details, Kurt while entertaining the crowd during the taping of the Stars on Ice show in Toronto’s Maple Leaf Garden was asked by one of the audience if he was married. He just skated away and called for his girlfriend Sonia and to the surprise of everyone he dropped on his knee and asked Sonia to marry him.
Sonia just nodded from the audience and came down to give Kurt a kiss. Isn’t that just romantic?
Blessed with two children
Kurt and Sonia are the perfect couple and have been married for 20 years now. The pair is blessed with two sons. Their first child Gabriel was born on July 12, 2003, and their second one Dillon was born on August 14, 2007.
Well, looking at the pictures shared by Sonia on her Instagram account they look like one happy family. Despite their busy career, both have worked very well to give time to their little ones. When asked about how the couple’s home life is different by ParentsCanada, Kurt said,
We just got to the stage where we’re used to Gabriel running up and down the stairs by himself and then along came another one, and so you had to apply a whole new set of rules to a littler one.
When asked to Sonia about their celebrity status affecting their kids, she said,
I think it’s just part of their everyday lives.They don’t really comprehend very much that it’s something extraordinary in a way. If they see a picture of us in the paper or something, that’s just something we do. I think Gabriel gets more proud when he sees pictures of himself in the paper or magazines. He likes that a lot.
We just like to wish Kurt and Sonia all luck for their future and hope their happiness last a lifetime.
