Family – Wife, Kids
Chris Janson is married to Kelly Lynn, another singer, and vocalist who is interested in classical and Christian pop. The couple was married on July 4, 2010. According to Chris, he knew as soon as he saw Kelly that she would become his life partner. In an interview with The Boot, the singer and songwriter said that he had seen his wife nine years before they were married and he told himself that he would marry her and did so a few years later when the opportunity arose.
The prominent couple has four children with the two older ones from Kelly’s previous marriage, whom Chris refers to as his bonus children. He could not contain his joy at the birth of his first biological child, who he said had really changed his world for the better. In his opinion, it was great to host two wonderful stepchildren from his marriage to Kelly, and when he got his first blood, a sweet little girl, he was truly thankful to God for his blessings in so many ways, including the birth of his second child, a little boy named Jesse Bo in 2014. The veteran singer believes that children are truly gifts from God and he loves being a father to them.
The couple has always lived happily ever after in the proverbial picture book and celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary in July 2017. Kelly, for her part, was a supportive and understanding wife, and the love between them can only be described as abundant and endless. She compromises her own dreams in others to encourage her husband to follow his. Due to the small budget, the couple had in 2015, Chris Janson found it almost impossible to release his album entitled Buy Me a Boat. Eventually, he was willing to give up, but since Kelly is the smart woman she is, she didn’t let that particular dream go down the drain.
Instead of hiring a professional photographer, she decided to take the advertising photos with her mobile phone just to save money, and to her biggest surprise, the album later became a commercial success. Kelly was also supportive and understanding when her husband had a drinking problem, she helped him when he got over the addiction.
Chris Janson for his part is considered a caring and loving husband who loves to constantly surprise his wife with many beautiful things, especially flowers. The singer-songwriter also has his wife’s name tattooed on his chest as a sign of his everlasting love for her, so their marriage was always filled with just a few happy moments, as they keep uploading happy photos as evidence in social media. Kelly recently posted her vacation photo on her Instagram. It seemed that the couple went to Hawaii and had a great time with Kelly in a cute brown hat and Chris in a cap. The big and happy smiles on their faces testify to how much fun and good times the couple had had.
