Kelsea Ballerini and her boyfriend Chase Stokes put on a loved-up display while attending the Time100 Next 2023 gala in New York City on Tuesday. 

The 30-year-old country pop singer and the Outer Banks actor, 31, shared an amorous kiss as they posed for shutterbugs at the event.

Chase flashed a smile as his lady love – who previously revealed she made the first move in their romance, by sliding into his DM’s – planted a kiss on his lips, while he held a tender hand on her back. 

The duo continued to show off their affection for each other as they sweetly rubbed their noses together. 

While at the gala Kelsea thrilled in a slinky black gown that featured peekaboo accents, allowing her to put her washboard abs on display.

Her sizzling ensemble also offered up a generous helping of cleavage and featured a tantalizingly high slit up one side, flashing one of her statuesque legs.

The country music siren wore her blonde air slicked tightly back and lent herself a touch of extra stature by balancing expertly on a towering pair of jet-black heels.

Meanwhile Chase looked handsome in a long camel coat underneath which he wore a black tee and black pants.

The actor wore his brunette tresses in slicked down curls.

As the shutterbugs snapped away at her, Kelsea playfully kissed the latest issue of Time magazine, which just so happened to feature her splashed across the cover.

The gala afforded her an opportunity to showcase the talents that brought Kelsea her latest honor, as the program included a musical performance by her.

That evening’s event was billed as an event to celebrate ‘the emerging leaders from around the world who are shaping the future and defining the next generation of leadership,’ per Time. 

Kelsea was first spotted with Chase back in January, when they both attended the College Football National Championship Game in Los Angeles with mutual friends.

They confirmed their romance after being spotted sharing a passionate embrace and holding hands while at LAX airport together.

In a July interview with Stylecaster, Kelsea described their relationship this way.

‘The thing that we’ve decided, and to each their own, is when you’re with someone that you feel secure with and that you’re proud to be with, why not share it?’ she said.

‘He’s also a Virgo,’ she explained, adding, ‘we’re both Labrador retrievers in human form. It doesn’t take much conversation to be on the same page. It’s been half a year and it’s been great.’

Kelsea was previously married to country singer Morgan Evans, 38. The duo wed in December 2017, but by August 2022 she announced that they were divorcing.

She cited irreconcilable differences when filing for divorce in Tennessee in August 2022. Their divorce was finalized on November 15, 2022.
