Reality star Savannah Chrisley, 21, and boyfriend Nic Kerdiles, 25, are taking the next big step in their relationship!
The NHL player popped the question to Savannah over the holidays. She told People magazine, “[On the night of the engagement], Nic’s family was in town and my whole family was there and we were filming and I was furious. I was like, ‘The fact we’re filming on Christmas Eve is absolutely insane. I have people here.’”
After returning from a grocery run with her mom, Savannah started “freaking out” after seeing Nick, her family and friends outside their house. She said, “I’m like, ‘This isn’t really about to happen.’ And then, Nic looks at me and he was like, ‘Hey, babe, will you come here?’ And you can tell you he was so nervous, and I was nervous. That was a long walk. I was like, ‘What is going down?’ And then, it’s funny. He tells me now that he forgot everything he wanted to say. He said he had this whole thing written out, and he was like, ‘I just forgot it all.’ And it was just so cute and everyone was crying. It was just such a cool moment. And the fact that both of our families were there made it even better.”
Nic also made sure to ask her dad’s permission before he went down on one knee. She shared, “It’s funny because Nic wanted to ask them in person, but he was in Canada and we were all in Nashville. He FaceTimed my dad. My dad said he was so nervous when he FaceTimed him, that he asked my dad for his hand in marriage! And my dad was like, ‘You may want to re-ask that question.’ He was like, ‘Do you want my daughter’s hand in marriage or my hand in marriage?’ Nic hung up the phone and called back, and then asked him the right way. And it was just so funny. My dad said he was so nervous.”
The pair are taking their time with the wedding planning. She pointed out, “Just because you’re engaged doesn’t mean you have to get married tomorrow. So, we’re kind of just taking our time. We know that we want to spend the rest of our life with each other.'”
Last week, Savannah opened up about her relationship with Nic to “Extra,” saying, “It’s a fun relationship to be in. It’s not perfect all the time, but we make it work.”
The pair started dating in late 2017 after she slid into his DMs. She commented, “I got no shame in it.” As for what she wrote to him, Chrisley revealed, “I hope you have a great season.”
She added, “He responded. He actually asked for my number.”
Over the years, Savannah has been romantically linked to Chandler Parsons and Luke Kennard.
