Fans drooled over Morgan Evans and Kelsea Ballerini after their first date as it was so reminiscent of a romantic comedy. The couple separated in 2022.
While co-hosting an awards ceremony in his native Australia in 2016, the “Peter Pan” singer had the chance to meet her future husband through their shared love of music. The couple finally decided to get married after taking tequila shots together after an amazing show. On the day of their wedding, which took place in Mexico in December 2017, they toasted their guests while sipping tequila.
People are interested in knowing the history of the couple’s relationship as well as their children after the musician’s personal life was rocked by the news that he is divorcing his long-term partner.
After divorcing husband Morgan Evans, has Kelsea Ballerini found anyone to date?
Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans’ split after five years together led to the end of their partnership. The 28-year-old country artist announced via a social media message Monday that she had filed the paperwork needed to start the divorce process.
Afterward, the famous singer went on to say that it was an “agonizing decision.” Ballerini and her husband skipped the Academy of Country Music Honors event that took place last week.
When information about the singer’s personal life became public, she took to social media to let her fans know that she had done her best to share her life while protecting certain aspects of her privacy. She went on to describe a life of love, personal growth, and professional achievements, but it all ended when she became involved in an amazing romance that ended badly.
She said they both had “extremely demanding schedules” and she advised her followers to exercise cautiously as both are sensitive and recovering from illness or injury.
Kelsa Ballerini recently made public her decision to end her marriage to Morgan Evans after the couple dated for almost five years.
After the singer went public with her decision to dissolve her marriage to Evans, she has not revealed the identity of her new lover, nor offered an explanation as to why the couple decided to break up their marriage.
The evolution of Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evan’s relationship over time
Evans, who is 37, and the singer, known for the song “Love Me Like You Mean It,” began dating in March 2016. The musicians first met while serving as hosts for the Country Music Channel Awards in Australia. Ballerini and Evans began dating shortly after Ballerini persuaded Evans to do a post-show shoot with her. On the same enchanted evening, the adorable couple shared their first kiss.
On Christmas Day, a little less than a year after they first met, the Australian popped the question (December 25, 2016). “His love is without a doubt the greatest gift I’ve ever received in my entire life. And the best part is that from this point I can go on for the rest of my life,” Ballerini explained when she made the announcement of their upcoming wedding on Instagram.
The musicians tied the knot in Mexico in December 2017 and the ceremony took place there. A little over a year later, Evan came clean and admitted that his ex-wife was the main source of musical inspiration for most of the songs on his album Things That We Drink To.
Evans and Ballerini were each other’s biggest supporters as they rose to the top of the country music industry over the course of several years. Despite the fact that Evans attended CMT’s 2021 Artist of the Year event alone, he gushed about the Tennessee native on the red carpet while the “Half of My Hometown” singer was recognized.
After contributing backing vocals to his wife’s album, Unapologetically, in October 2018, the Australian singer collaborated with Evans on the production of her song “Dance With Me.”
The singer, best known for her role in the song “Love Is Real,” went on to admit that the coronavirus epidemic has “definitely caused a shift” in the couple’s romantic relationship. The musician says: “I think we’ve seen each other more over the last year and a half, whether it’s from their dark side or their light side. If things had stayed that way between us, I think we would have seen each other more often over the next ten years.
After three years of marriage, Evans gushed on Instagram about how wonderful his wife is. “The last three years have been some of my greatest. The happiest person in the whole wide world. In December 2020, he shared a romantic snap of the two with the caption, “Happy Anniversary, Baby.”
After the ups and downs of 2020, the couple made the decision in January 2021 to relocate to the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee to “reset” their lives.
At the ACM awards ceremony in March 2022, Ballerini was the flashiest person on the red carpet, while her spouse looked dapper in a black suit by Saint Laurent. Dolly Parton later invited the Tennessee native on stage for a duet.
Ballerini filed for divorce in August 2022 after their marriage had been going well for about five years at that point, and she asked her fans for their support.
Kelsea Ballerini Children and Family
Kelsea Nicole Ballerini, who later became known as a country pop singer, was born on September 12, 1993 in the United States. She began writing songs as a young child and signed with Black River Entertainment in 2014. The following year she released The First Time, her debut studio album. 2017 marked the release of her second album made in a studio environment and she makes no apologies for that.
Ballerini spent her childhood in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her father Ed is of Italian ancestry and previously worked as a sales manager for a country radio station. She has some Italian blood in her. Carla Ballerini, Ballerini’s mother, has previous marketing experience, both for a company that manages sponsorships and for an organization that publishes the Bible edited by Thomas Nelson.
Her mother and father have no other children besides her. Kelsea began taking dance classes at the age of three at Premiere Dance Studio in Seymour, Tennessee. She continued going there until she was ten years old, when she stopped going there altogether.
On December 2, 2017, the singer married another artist named Morgan Evans. Almost exactly five years later, on August 29, 2022, the couple announced their divorce after nearly four years of marriage. Despite five years of marriage, the Ballerini couple have no children of their own.
In 2008, while Ballerini was still a student at Central High School, she was present at the filming that took place there. The singer claims the traumatic event gave her post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
