Immediately after their Instagram debut went live, many of the Dancing with the Stars alum’s celebrity friends began to chime in, including Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise alum Christen Whitney who commented, “obsessed 😍.”

Kramer first hinted that she was in a new relationship during the Jan. 9. episode of her Whine Down with Jana Kramer podcast.

She explained “I don’t know if this is my forever person. But, like, I’m not going to push away love just because I’ve been hurt before. I’m going to embrace it. I’m going to have fun. And if it doesn’t work out, well, you know what, I’m gonna learn a lot of lessons. And I had a lot of fun along the way.”

The pair met via a dating app, but the singer was not sure at first that she wanted to date someone from another country. Russell lives in the UK with his team based in England.

“Even with him, I said, ‘No, this is silly. I’m a mom with two kids and I live in Nashville, like, how would this even work?’ And something about him, you know, I was like, ‘OK, well, let me just see, what does the conversation hurt, right?’ This just feels different.”
