Kelsea Ballerini and Chase Stokes started dating in December 2022, the Rolling Up the Welcome Mat singer revealed last month on the Call Her Daddy podcast. On the podcast episode, Ballerini also revealed that she slid into Stokes’ DMs after the two started following each other on Instagram. Kelsea and Chase are now making their relationship public by going the extra mile.

According to TMZ, on Thursday night, the country singer and Outer Banks actor watched the New York Rangers game against the Ottawa Senators at Madison Square Garden in New York City. During the sporting event, the couple was captured sharing a kiss while in their seats. Ballerini kept it casually cool in an all-black outfit made of a jacket and pant.

Stokes on the other hand went for a brighter color palette donning a yellow-and-black jacket over a white T-shirt and accessorizing with a pearl necklace and brown hat. The couple seems to be in great spirits while fans must have seen them all over each other at LAX and having a wonderful time at a Nashville honky tonk and this is the first time they’ve both attended a public event as a duo.

The photos were released just days after Kelsea’s ex-husband, Morgan Evans, released a YouTube docuseries about his career and divorce from the star. In the fifth episode of the series, he admitted that he “feels pretty good, considering everything.” However, he noted that he still has “a long way to go. But I’m a long way from where I was three weeks ago.”


Kelsea had been revealing various details about their “nasty” divorce, which she began in August 2022 and concluded in November 2022. It didn’t start out bad, though, according to the singer herself. Let’s see what Kelsea and Chase have in store for us next. Keep an eye on Thirsty for the most latest updates.
