The internet has been abuzz with excitement over the adorable relationship between country singer Kelsea Ballerini and Chase Stokes, the star of the hit show Outer Banks. Stokes, who has been accompanying Ballerini on her Heartfirst tour, recently gained a new nickname that perfectly encapsulates his role as the ultimate supportive partner. Online commentators affectionately dubbed him the “golden retriever” boyfriend, and Stokes has wholeheartedly embraced the title.


Chase Stokes Fully Accepts His New Title

During a red carpet interview at Netflix’s Tudum: A Global Fan Event in São Paulo, Brazil, Stokes expressed his enthusiasm for the nickname, stating, “I’ll take the job, I’ll take it.” He even shared a cute coincidence that adds an extra layer of charm to the moniker—his own dog, Milo, is a golden retriever and German shepherd mix.

When asked about his support for Ballerini, Stokes couldn’t help but gush about his talented girlfriend. He described her as “the best human being on planet Earth” and praised her incredible musical abilities. Despite being physically separated from her due to his commitments in Brazil, Stokes revealed that he has been keeping up with her recent concert performances through videos she sends him.

Stokes and Ballerini’s romance first sparked speculation in January of this year, and Ballerini confirmed their relationship in February during an appearance on the Call Her Daddy podcast. Since then, the couple has been going strong, with a source close to them revealing that they are enjoying a fantastic time together.


The source mentioned how supportive Stokes has been and emphasized the deep connection they share, both personally and professionally.

Chase Stokes Updates Fans on Outer Banks

Netflix’s Tudum: A Global Fan Event served as a platform for Stokes to provide an update on the highly anticipated fourth season of Outer Banks. Stokes mentioned that the ongoing Writers’ Guild of America strike has impacted the cast and crew, despite their preparations for production.

Stokes also reflected on the unique camaraderie among the show’s cast and crew, emphasizing their close-knit bond. Many of the same individuals who were there from the beginning continue to be a part of the show’s production, creating a sense of familiarity and family.


As fans eagerly await the return of Outer Banks and continue to root for Stokes and Ballerini’s relationship, it’s clear that Stokes is not just a talented actor but also a devoted and supportive partner.
