The relationship between Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans has not been without problems, with Ballerini joking that Evans burned the pancakes when he asked her to marry him in December 2016. “Loving him is the greatest blessing of my life. After teasing the “Love Is Real” singer for his kitchen proposal, she said on Instagram at the time, “And now I get to do it forever.”
One of the hottest young couples in country music has separated. Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans, who wed in December 2017, are no longer together. Kelsea herself shared the news on her Instagram Story on August 29. She wrote, “This is already public knowledge, so I wanted you to hear it directly from me: I am going through a divorce.” “This extremely tough decision is the culmination of a journey of love, growth, and effort that has reached its conclusion.”
She said, “It's quite tough to find the right words here, but I'm extremely grateful for the years of marriage to Morgan and optimistic about the upcoming seasons. With upcoming busy schedules, please be mindful that we are both vulnerable, actively recovering, and performing at our best.” In her August 26 divorce petition, acquired by HollywoodLife, she listed “irreconcilable disagreements” as the cause for their separation.
In the spring of 2016, Kelsea and Morgan, who are separated by nine years, met while co-hosting an awards presentation in his native Australia. By the end of the year, they had become engaged. The couple wed in Mexico less than a year after their engagement. Morgan had recently relocated to Nashville as a promising country musician, where he and Kelsea began their lives together.
After getting married, Kelsea and Morgan became a fixture at country music award presentations and other prominent events. During the summer of 2022, however, viewers began to speculate that something was amiss between the couple. After months without any social media posts together, rumors of a breakup began to circulate. Some social media users even noted that Kelsea did not appear to be wearing her rings in certain online photographs. However, Kelsea and Morgan kept quiet about the status of their relationship for a considerable amount of time.
Although Morgan and Kelsea lived their love in the public glare, Kelsea was certain that certain aspects of their lives would not be made public. She frequently dismissed questions on social media about when the couple planned to have children and start a family. Kelsea tweeted to a fan after the 2020 CMA Awards, “I'm sure you have good intentions, but it's terribly disrespectful to inquire or assume whether another woman is pregnant or not.” “I am not, as an aside. Simply transporting my organs. But if I were, I would want to share it when I felt comfortable.”
