"Yes." 💍 pic.twitter.com/U6m88yZ4ld— MAREN MORRIS (@MarenMorris) July 9, 2017
Maren Morris took to social media on Sunday to share news that she and singer-songwriter, Ryan Hurd got engaged.
The “My Church” singer shared a series of photographs to her Instagram and Twitter of her and Hurd with the caption that simply read, “Yes” with an engagement ring emoji.
The photographs Morris shared are of the acclaimed country singer and songwriter sitting in her beau’s lap, her hand with a glimmering ring in focus and a snap of the two gazing into each other’s eyes.
Hurd also shared an image on Instagram of him and Morris on boat earlier Sunday, with the caption, 7/3/17, denoting the date of their engagement.
Morris and Hurd met at a writing session in 2013 and have been quite open about their relationship through a plethora of social media posts shared to their Instagram.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Morris revealed he has been her biggest fan throughout her journey in Music City.
“He’s always just been so talented, but I think the biggest thing about him that I fell in love with was just his kind heart,” Morris said. “He’s one of the most thoughtful people in the world.”
She isn’t afraid to be open with her feelings either and shared a heartfelt post about Hurd, adding that the two made a pact.
“A handshake that we’d try this “artist thing” out because our hearts were telling us to do so, but we also agreed we’d never let ego or jealousy precede the love we have for one another. Saw you close your first ever tour this week and just a few short years ago, I was meeting you in a dimly lit writing room somewhere; intrigued and smiling like a lunatic at a boy with a legal pad full of song titles. I’m still confused at why you don’t own a laptop. Your heart is unlike anyone’s I’ve ever known, [Ryan Hurd]. You’ve been at my side for every award [and] moment, and now I get to see you shake this world up. Chase your dream and cheer theirs on, too.”
