Kelsea Ballerini got a gift this year that will last a lifetime: true love and a big, sparkly ring. The “Love Me Like You Mean It” singer happily announced her engagement to Australian country artist Morgan Evans on Christmas Day.
According to Ballerini’s social media announcement, Evans got down on one knee as they were making (burning) pancakes together on Dec. 25. “Loving him has been the greatest gift of my life. And now I get to do it for life,” she exclaimed.
The two met only nine months ago when they hosted an award show together. Evans, a successful artist himself, tours extensively and was awarded CMA’s Global Artist Award in 2015. He even joined Kelsea for a few dates during her First Time Tour this fall.
“When you know, you know… she’s perfect,” Evans posted on Instagram along with the hashtag #ultimatedibs, in reference to Ballerini’s No. 1 song, “Dibs.” The two seem as happy as can be. Also, mad props to Evans on his jewelry selection because the ring is gorgeous. Just take a look at the close up photo Kelsea shared on Twitter.
“I GET TO MARRY MY AUSSIE. my heart is bursting from loving this human so much. luckiest girl in the world,” Ballerini shared with her Twitter followers. She joins fellow country star Kacey Musgraves on the list of celebrities who became engaged his holiday season.
We wish the best to the adorable couple. This has been quite an exciting year for Ballerini, who was recently nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best New Artist category. To keep up with Kelsea and her 2017 tour schedule, visit her official website.
