Kelsea Ballerini, Morgan Evans Get Engaged on Christmas

Kelsea Ballerini is officially off the market! The rising star got engaged to her boyfriend, Morgan Evans, on Christmas Day (Dec. 25).

Ballerini shared the news of her and Evans’ engagement on Instagram on Christmas evening. The singer first posted a video clip from when she and Evans first met, in March of this year, while hosting the CMC Music Awards in Australia; in her next post, she explained that Evans popped the question on Christmas morning, “nine months and 13 days” after that awards show, “while I was burning pancakes.”

“Loving him has been the greatest gift of my life,” Ballerini writes. “And now I get to do it for life.”

On the end of her second Instagram post, Ballerini added the hashtag #HeCalledDibs, a nod to her second single, “Dibs.”

Evans is an Australian singer-songwriter who released his self-titled debut album in his native Australia in 2014. He’s won a number of CMC Music Awards and earned numerous No. 1 singles as well. Evans is currently working on his U.S. debut album.

The year 2016 has been a good one for Ballerini: She became the first female artist (including duos and groups) in country music history to hit No. 1 with the first three consecutive singles from a debut album; she also became the first solo female artist in history to top both the Country Airplay and Hot Country Singles charts simultaneously. In addition to working on a new album, Ballerini is nominated for the all-genre Best New Artist award at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
