The actor spoke with ET at the season 3 premiere of 'Outer Banks' in LA on Thursday.
"I mean she's the best," Stokes said of Ballerini -- with whom he's been romantically linked since January. "I'm so excited for her and everything happening in her career right now."
Ballerini will be performing alongside guest host -- and Super Bowl champion -- Travis Kelce on Mar. 4. The show also revealed that Jenna Ortega will host on Mar. 11, alongside musical guest The 1975.
In January, Stokes and Ballerini were spotted sharing a hug at LAX amid ongoing romance rumors. The PDA-packed moment came just days after a source told ET that Ballerini is embracing her new chapter amid her divorce from fellow country musician Morgan Evans.
Meanwhile, Stokes is also excited for fans to get a chance to see the third season of Outer Banks, and even more thrilled to celebrate the premiere with his castmates -- something that was harder to accomplish during previous seasons due to the pandemic.
"You know, it's been such a journey with this cast, and it's been such a long time where we've been going through this COVID era," he shared. "To sorta now have a moment like this is such a beautiful experience."
"Really, all I can think about is we've been doing this for so long now and thirty episodes later to have this moment is such a beautiful thing," he added with a smile.
Outer Banks season 3 premieres Feb. 23 on Netflix.
