It didn't take long for Kelsea Ballerini and Australian singer-songwriter Morgan Evans to realize that they were a match made in heaven: The adorable couple got engaged on Christmas Day in 2016, a little over nine months after they first met while hosting the CMC Music Awards in Brisbane in March of that year.

Ballerini and Evans' co-hosting gig was caught on camera, of course, and it's clear that they had instant chemistry. In between that night and their Christmas morning engagement -- which happened, according to Ballerini, "in the kitchen while I was burning pancakes" -- the pair shared a few public moments at industry events, including a flirty walk down the red carpet at the 2016 CMA Awards.
