Lilly Bennett and James Kennedy broke up quite a while ago.

Season 1 captured the ups and downs of Lilly's relationship with James, including a birthing class gone wrong and a promising date to the Strawberry Festival, which James failed to show up to. 

One episode, titled "Home Alone," featured another tension-filled scene in which Kim, Lilly's mother, lectured Lilly on why she shouldn't give James's last name to her daughter. As she reasoned, she should have waited longer with decisions of this weight. 

James may have given Lilly a promise ring, but it didn't end up working out in the long run. It's understood that Lilly and James broke up after the shooting of Season 1 of Unexpected wrapped up.

"Happy Birthday to my best friend! Thank you for showing me what love really is. I couldn't possibly wish for a better boyfriend. I love you with all my heart, enjoy your day," Lilly captioned a post in celebration of Lawrence's birthday. 

A devoted gym lover and football player, Lawrence graduated from the Riverhead Senior High School in June 2019. Lawrence regularly makes appearances in Lilly's Instagram posts — and vice versa — and it seems that things have been working out well for the pair.
