White, 35, recently announced he was riding into retirement, paving the way for him to concentrate on his romance with the Vampire Diaries alum, 33. “Training at the Olympic level takes such a huge time commitment, and as much as he loves it, he’s ready for a new chapter in life,” explains the source, pointing out that White revealed he’d “love to be a dad” last month.
