Country star Kelsea Ballerini is engaged to Australian musician Morgan Evans after nine months of dating. The couple met while cohosting Australia's Country Music Channel Awards in March. The 23-year-old "Love Me Like You Mean It" singer, who was recently nominated for the best new artist Grammy award, shared a sweet photo of the couple (and her stunning ring) on Instagram on Christmas Day, writing, "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." She followed up with a close-up snap of her new bauble on Twitter, saying, "My heart is bursting from loving this human so much." Of the ring (which he designed in Nashville), Morgan told People, "I wanted it to be classic and beautiful, like her."
