Sometimes your best moment in life is finding the one you love. The Young and the Restless' Lexie Stevenson (Mattie Ashby) has found love with Kris Wilkes and she spoke with us about their awesome love story.
"Kris and I met at a UCLA frat party!," she gushed as she went on further to say, "He was on the UCLA basketball team and some of my girlfriends were friends with some of the other players on the team which is why I was there. He came up to me and asked for my number but I didn't know him at all so I gave him my Instagram. I wasn't super into him at first because I was getting out of another relationship but then 3 weeks later I swiped up on one of his posts and he immediately asked me out to a movie and then we started hanging out as friends for about 8 months before we started dating!"
It's obvious she loves Kris very much as she noted, "Kris’s most attractive trait his how hard he is always trying to grow as a person and how hard he loves me." They're gearing up to celebrate their first anniversary as she revealed, "We have been together for almost a year! We started dating officially on August 28th of last year."
The future looks very bright for the couple and Stevenson told us, "Well right now we are in the process of trying to get our own place in California once the virus dies down a little more and we have been working a lot in quarantine. The future for us right now holds endless possibilities but we will be doing everything together. That is something we do know!"
To clarify what a person would assume from a picture on her Instagram account, "We are not engaged but that's definitely something we have talked about. I’m someone who loves to have things to look forward to so I don't want to rush it. I just want us to enjoy our time together right now!"
Does Stevenson have a favorite moment with her beau? She said, "I can’t say I have a favorite. Every morning when I wake up I feel like I fall in love with him all over again so if I had to have one I’d say every morning we wake up next to each other and he kisses my whole face."
A fun question came up as we asked her what movie would she use to describe their relationship, she stated, "Honestly, I can’t think of any movies that would really describe our relationship but the closest thing that might resemble how we are as a couple would probably be the movie Game Night lol!"
Check out some highlights below and remember to wish them a happy 1st anniversary on August 28, 2020.
