Kelsea Ballerini shared breathtaking photos from an island vacation, including some adorable snapshots with boyfriend Chase Stokes. Ballerini visited St. John, one of the U.S. Virgin Islands located in the Caribbean Sea. The gorgeous getaway, which also included Kenny Chesney and others, comes shortly after the “HEARTFIRST” star and her fellow East Tennessean wrapped up their spring tour together.
Ballerini’s post on Thursday afternoon (June 1) included scenic views of orange sunsets, the stunning blue sea and more. One of the pictures captures Ballerini and Stokes in the water with her arms around his shoulders as he turns to kiss her on the cheek. Another shows the couple smiling together while taking a selfie in the mirror. She wrote in her caption: “what a trip, what a place. now me and my sunburned scalp are ready to get back to work. 🤍”
Some Instagram users dropped comments gushing over the singer-songwriter’s evident joy: “Happiness looks good on you 🤍,” “We love to see you both so happy!!!! 🥰🥰,” “The happiness ,” and “Y’all look so cute (more importantly… happy) together! 😁 Cheers!,” to name a few. Stokes shared a photo of his own from the trip, writing, “Hey world. We’re living ❤️”
Ballerini confirmed earlier this year in a podcast interview that she was not single — “just vibing” — after rumors swirled on social media that she was dating the Outer Banks actor. Stokes and Ballerini were pictured together at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, where they attended the College Football Playoff National Championship on January 9. Ballerini revealed the following month that they’d actually begun talking in early December 2022, when she “slid into his DMs.” Since then, the couple has shared adorable photos with one another, and Ballerini recently brought him back to her hometown.
