Staying put! Kellie Pickler and her husband, Kyle Jacobs, are all set as a family of two.
“I love being Aunt Kellie and that is perfect for me,” the American Idol alum, 34, exclusively told Us Weekly on Thursday, August 6, while promoting Hallmark’s Shoebox Collection at Walmart during a game of “Quarantine Confessions.” The singer joked that she needed “another drink” to consider expanding her family, asking if the coronavirus baby boom is “really a thing.”
The North Carolina native wed her husband, Kyle Jacobs, in 2011 in Antigua. Eight years later, Pickler exclusively told Us that they were loving life with their “two little small puppies,” adding, “We’re dog parents for now.”
The “Red High Heels” singer also had a pet cat, but gave up Pickles due to her husband’s “severe” allergies.
“[I had to] find a good home,” Pickler told Parade in January 2012. “I still get a little teary-eyed when I think about Pickles, [but I’m] a people pleaser. I want everybody to be happy. I want everybody to like me and I want to like everybody.”
The Pickler & Ben alum went on to say that she felt “so blessed” to have married her “best friend.” She told the outlet at the time: “He is the best husband I ever had — come to think of it, he’s the only husband I’ve ever had! But on a serious note, he’s the prize. I don’t know why he picked me, but I’m glad he did.”
The country singer is also a big fan of Hallmark’s collection, telling Us on Thursday: “I always thought that sending a letter or sending a card to someone it’s just so much more meaningful than an email or a text message. … It’s something that you have that’s tangible and it’s personal. I feel like this is like the perfect time when everybody’s stuck at home during quarantine to get back into that habit. It helps the postal service keep their jobs.”
