How wonderful is Kellie Pickler? The 29-year-old country singer and former American Idol contestant visited HollywoodLife.com‘s podcast to give us the scoop on her great marriage to Kyle Jacobs, 43. While their relationship is a fairytale romance, Kelly needed some help getting there after dealing with her parents’ split. Click through to listen to the EXCLUSIVE details from our interview!
“I have been so blessed to have met Kyle,” Kellie told us during the podcast. “He is my sanctuary. Before I met him, I was not the girl who was going to get married. It was not in the cards for me. And I didn’t want it. Because I had never seen a real, true, beautiful marriage. So I thought what’s the deal? Why would I do this? And then I met Kyle and it was like wow, this can be a beautiful thing.
“And we can share a great life together. And now I have my life partner. He showed me in the beginning, where I kind of pulled back a little, because I didn’t want to open myself up to being hurt. We all go through different life obstacles, everybody has crap that they deal with. But with Kyle, he finally sat me down and he said, ‘just let me love you.’ So I was like okay, I’m going to take this jump. And we did together. He’s amazing and I’m so happy because I feel like I have my family.”
This is so sweet! Kellie didn’t have a great example for a healthy relationship after her parents had a painful divorce, but Kyle changed her mind about everything. And their union has stood strong; they’ve been married for almost a decade!
“We’ve been together for a little over 8 1/2 years, married for five,” Kellie told us. Being in love is one thing, but liking the person is another thing. When you’re in love, and you actually enjoy their company, we make it work. http://hollywoodlife.com/2016/04/27/desiree-hartsock-pregnant-baby-chris-siegfried-first-child-bachelorette/. We respect each other, we are adventure partners. We want to see the world. We want to live out of a suitcase and see as much as we can. And experience as many different things as possible. We have much more in common than different.”
