There must be something in those tropical waters down south. First Shania Twain runs off to Puerto Rico and gets married — and we just found out that Kellie Pickler and her fiancé, Kyle Jacobs, also got married on New Year’s Day, on a private island in the Caribbean.
GAC received the news in a one line press release issued by her record label. No other details or photos from the ceremony are available at this time. However, minutes ago on her Twitter page, Kellie tweeted, “Yes, it’s true, @kylecjacobs and I said “I Do!” Thank you Jesus!”
Kellie Pickler and Kyle Jacobs got engaged in June of 2010 when Kyle proposed to her at sunset on a Florida beach.
”It turned out to be the most amazing day of my life,” Kellie told PEOPLE magazine. “My whole world changed. We both feel like we got my grandmother’s blessing.”
Kellie likened Kyle’s proposal to a dream. “I remember saying to Kyle, ‘Baby it’s like I’m dreaming – but if this isn’t real, I’m going to be very upset!’” Kellie said.
Kyle put a lot of detail into planning the proposal. He arranged for a blanket, champagne and candles to be waiting for them along their beach stroll. “Afterward, we just held each other and had the most beautiful prayer,” Kyle said to PEOPLE. “We had a little champagne and talked and laughed and cried.”
Kellie and Kyle met through friends 2 ½ years ago. Kellie, who was raised by her grandparents after her mother left and her father went to jail, credits Kyle with showing her how to have a healthy relationship. She plans to have her father, with whom she has reestablished a relationship, walk her down the aisle. “Kyle took away all my fear of marriage and has shown me the way love is supposed to be,” she said. “I’m in the happiest place I’ve ever been.”
