Lauren Alaina Dating Comedian John Crist

Revealed to Bobby Bones on Wednesday morning she has a new man in her life

According to People Magazine, while promoting her new single  on The Bobby Bones Show Wednesday morning, she revealed to the host that she’s been quietly dating comedian John Crist since February.

“This is my boyfriend,” Alaina told Bones as Crist sat down to join the interview. The two initially connected when the country singer slid into Crist’s DMs — “I responded to one of his Instagram videos” — but the comedian didn’t know who she was, despite the blue checkmark on Alaina’s account.

 

“I didn’t want to be like, ‘Who are you?’ so I looked up her Wikipedia page. It was the wrong move,” Crist, 35, said, admitting his first try at a pickup line fell flat. (Alaina, 24, joked he hit her back with “I too grew up performing in church in Georgia,” but they eventually moved past the slow start.)

The new couple also addressed their 11-year age difference.

“I’m 35, her mom is 45, and she’s 24 … so I’m closer to her mom’s age than her. When she and her mom are arguing about stuff I’m literally in the middle like, ‘Actually your mom makes some good points,'” Crist joked.

However, Alaina said that the comedian’s family is just happy he finally has a significant other after years of focusing on his career. “John hasn’t introduced them to a girl in 10 years so… they’re shocked he’s bringing a girl around,” the “Road Less Traveled” singer shot back.
