Lindsey Vonn Puts Parenthood on the Back Burner
Skier Lindsey Vonn took home the gold medal in downhill at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, and has 33 World Cup wins under her belt, but one title will have to wait — Mom.
“I want to keep skiing as long as I can,” Vonn — who wed fellow Olympic skier Thomas Vonn in Sept. 2007 — told PEOPLE at Tuesday’s New York premiere of The Bounty Hunter.
“I want to stay 100 percent focused on my skiing. And then when I’m done, I want to be 100 percent focused on my family,” Vonn, 25, explains.
“I don’t want to mix the two.”
That said, when it’s eventually time for kids the Vonns have their sights set on a family of six — preferably “two boys and two girls” — and even have names picked out.
Can she share their choices?
“I can’t tell you,” laughs Vonn. “My husband said I can’t tell anyone in case someone takes the names!”
