Lainey Wilson joked about fans thinking she started dating Devlin "Duck" Hodges at the 2023 ACM Awards, but surprise surprise, the two have actually been an item for 2 years now!
The singer and former NFL quarterback have been keeping their relationship under wraps publicly, by design. "I'll be honest, as a female in country music, there's definitely times where you need folks to know you're here to show up and work and get down to business," she says. "I wanted to make sure it was about my music."
Wilson was referring to her big night at the ACM Awards last month, where she didn't kiss her man upon winning several awards. The two opted for something more casual, a "bro-hug" and a pat on the back.
"Does it look awkward?" she asks. "It was one of those things where I was like, 'I don't know what to do.” "We talked about doing a handshake," she revealed to Taste of Country Nights' Evan Paul, laughing. "Maybe next time we will."
