Later in January only, the two were spotted on a dinner date in Nashville, holding hands together while enjoying each other’s company.

Just after their love-filled date, a few days later the love birds were spotted at the LAX airport hugging and holding hands showing PDA. 

The potential new romance comes months after Kelsey announces her divorce from Morgan Evans after being married to him for 5 years. Kelsey shared in August, “This deeply difficult decision is the result of a journey of love, growth, and effort that ultimately has come to an end. It’s hard to find the words here but I feel extremely grateful for the years of marriage to Morgan and hopeful for the next seasons.”

On the other hand, Chase reportedly split from his Outer Banks’ co-star Madelyn Cline in 2021 after dating her for a year. The couple announced their split on social media, sharing a joint statement that read, “We’ve decided to follow our hearts and prioritize our happiness at this moment.” The announcement came as a shock to fans, who had been rooting for the couple since the show’s debut.
