Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley shocked fans of the country duo on Monday by revealing that he secretly married his girlfriend.
The 28-year-old singer shared the big news with People
after he and his 23-year-old girlfriend, Brittney Marie Cole, got married in an outdoor ceremony at his Nashville home on Monday.
Kelley's wedding is a big surprise for fans of the "Cruise" singer, as he didn't publicly reveal that he was planning on marrying his girlfriend, in part because they didn't have a traditional engagement.
"The whole process has been non-traditional. There was no official proposal or exchanging of rings," he divulged to People
. "We had just fallen in love, and I knew I couldn't live without her. It sounds like a terrible cheesy movie, but when you know, you know!"
Kelley says that he's known his now-wife, whom he dated for seven months prior to their marriage, for over three years. They were both in relationships when they first met.
"I always knew in my heart that if I were single, then I wanted a chance with her," Kelly said. "She was my dream girl."
The newlyweds have their sights on a tropical honeymoon in the near future, but children are out of the picture for now.
"One day for sure, but it's too crazy with everything going on right now," Kelley said of having children. "We're enjoying being with each other. It's a beautiful love story. It really is."
