Savannah Chrisley Has a Thing For Professional Athletes ... But Who Doesn't?

We may not have asked for a Chrisley Knows Best spinoff, but USA is giving us one anyway in the form of Growing Up Chrisley. It looks like patriarch Todd Chrisley is a better "dad-ager" than we thought. 

The new series follows Chase and Savannah Chrisley as they move to Los Angeles to truly capitalize on their reality TV fame. Of course, Chase wants to be an actor, but it’s Savannah who really piques our interest. 

According to the show’s official website, the former pageant queen wants to make it big in the beauty industry, and is off to a pretty good start with over 1.7 million Instagram followers. But what viewers really seem to care about is the 21-year-old’s eventful dating life. 

Here’s what we know about Savannah’s relationship status going into Growing Up Chrisley

Who is Savannah Chrisley dating in 2019?

The makeup enthusiast has been seeing professional hockey player Nic Kerdiles for over a year. According to Instagram, the 25-year-old — who skates for the Manitoba Moose while under contract with the Winnipeg Jets — is also a real estate agent in Tennessee. 

Savannah previously revealed that she slid into her now boyfriend’s DMs. "I was scrolling through Instagram one day and then went over to the activity page and a girl I follow liked one of his pics and I was like 'ohhhh dangggg....who’s that!'" the Georgia native told fans.

"I then proceeded to take my shot and send him a message. Thankfully he responded and then it was history lol! The End."

Well, it looks like it worked because Savannah and Nic are engaged!

Nic popped the question in front of family and friends in her home in Nashville on Christmas Eve – and Savannah was surprised, to say the least. 

"And it was just so cute and everyone was crying," she told People magazine. "It was just such a cool moment. And the fact that both of our families were there made it even better."

However, the couple is not planning to get married right away. "Just because you’re engaged doesn’t mean you have to get married tomorrow," she added. "So, we’re kind of just taking our time. We know that we want to spend the rest of our life with each other." 

We're rooting for this athlete, though her last relationship didn’t end so well. 

Savannah Chrisley’s ex-boyfriend, Luke Kennard, plays in the NBA.

The former couple dated for four months back in 2017. Though their courtship was short, the breakup was a messy affair.

"I mean, you live and you learn. I’ve learned a lot of things that I don’t want and that’s what relationships are for," Savannah told E!’s Daily Pop a few months after the split. "You date people to figure out what you want and don’t want… Thankfully, I dodged a bullet on the last one."

A little less than a year later, Todd had plenty to say about his daughter’s former boyfriend, who currently plays for the Detroit Pistons. "The ex is a young guy, NBA, made a lot of money, and he’s doing exactly what NBA players do," the 49-year-old shared on People Now, insinuating that Luke cheated on Savannah. 

But the former real estate mogul doesn’t place all the blame on Luke. "I mean, hell, when you crawl into bed with a snake, don’t b---h when it bites," Todd joked.

Watch Savannah on Growing Up Chrisley on Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. EST on USA.
