Oprah: Where Are They Now?

She's an Olympic gold medalist and a champion of Dancing with the Stars, but these days figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi's number one priority is being a good mother to her two daughters.

When Kristi was a young girl, she says, she became interested in ice skating after going to a local ice show. "The dream of the Olympics started pretty early on," she says. "Dorothy Hamill was my childhood idol."

During the 1992 Winter Olympic Games, Kristi won a gold medal and met the man who would eventually become her husband, Olympian and Stanley Cup champion Bret Hedican. "That was a pretty good year, I guess," she says.

Today the couple has two daughters, Keara and Emma. Watch as Kristi invites cameras into their home.
