Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and his wife Hayley have the kind of relationship some people only dream about.

What started out as a simple friendship eventually led to an amazing marriage, but it almost didn’t happen.

Prior to dating Hubbard, Stommel contemplated leaving Nashville but decided not to after “a friend of mine told me to pray about the move and that he didn’t think I should leave.”

“So, I did. I asked God to make it clear … One month later that same friend, who is now my husband, gave me my last first kiss,” Stommel revealed on her blog. “Wow am I glad I stayed.”

Tyler and Hayley began dating in 2013 and got engaged during a romantic helicopter ride in the fall of the following year.

Their wedding was a star-studded affair. Held in Sun Valley, Idaho on July 1, 2015, which happened to be the two-year anniversary of their very first kiss, the mountainside soiree was attended by Hubbard’s bandmate Brian Kelley as well as fellow country stars Thomas Rhett, Canaan Smith and Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley.

“There’s something about being able to call Hayley my wife and say that it’s official!” Hubbard told People following the nuptials. “Marriage is forever and we’re just so happy to share our love forever.”

After nearly two years of marriage, the couple revealed they were expecting their first child together. An incorrect blood test had the couple thinking it was a boy, so they were shocked to find out that they were actually expecting a baby girl.

Olivia Rose Hubbard was born December 23, 2017.

“Our life has been forever been changed for the better,” the proud new dad shared at the time.

Tyler and Hayley announced plans to expand their family once again in 2019, revealing a baby boy was on the way. Luca Reed is expected to arrive in August.
