Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans Celebrating Third Anniversary Today

by Suzanne Halliburton

Kelsea Ballerini and husband Morgan Evans are celebrating their third anniversary today. So cue the confetti. Plus, etiquette suggests we buy the young couple gifts of leather.

Now, let’s remember the cute story of how the couple met Down Under.

That was back in 2016. Ballerini was in Australia to co-host an awards show. Evans was the other host for Australia’s Country Music Channel Awards show. During the after-party, Ballerini and Evans got to know each other like so many other couples do here in the United States.

They shot tequila.

“He was like, ‘Let’s take a shot,'” Ballerini told People. “I remember taking that shot and putting it down and looking at him like, ‘Oh … he’s super-hot.’ Later that night he leaned over and asked if he could kiss me, like a proper gentleman, and I said yes.”

Like Ballerini, Evans also is a country singer, songwriter.

Evans proposed on Christmas Day, 2016. That’s worth an awwww. She announced the news and showed off her ring on Instagram.

She wrote: “This morning, 9 months and 13 days later, he got down on one knee in the kitchen while I was burning pancakes and asked me to marry him. Loving him has been the greatest gift of my life. And now I get to do it for life. #HECALLEDDIBS”

Dibs is the name of one of Ballerini’s hits. It’s also the name of her dog.

Evans told “PeopleStyle” he had Ballerini’s ring custom made in Nashville.

“I wanted it to be classic and beautiful, like her,” Evans said.

The two married almost a year later in Cabo San Lucas. Like you’d expect from a couple of songwriters, the vows were beautiful.

Ballerini and Evans are busy these days settling into a new home.

Happy Anniversary!
