Matthew’s brother Joey competed on Season 3 of Dancing with the Stars, finishing in third place with Edyta Śliwińska. Burke won that season with her partner Emmitt Smith. She and Matthew started dating the next year. They eventually broke up in 2008, but they reconnected in 2017 and tied the knot in May 2019. The couple has no kids together.

Burke’s YouTube channel features several videos about her relationship with Lawrence, including one from August 2020 in which they watch their wedding together. In another video from a month earlier, the couple reacts to clips from their honeymoon.
Another clip, from February 2021, is titled “Who Knows Me Best? Husband vs Sister!” It features Lawrence competing with Burke’s sister Nicole to see who knows more about her. The couple also celebrated their anniversary in Maui last year, and Burke posted a vlog from the trip.
One of Lawrence’s most recent posts on Instagram is from last May, when he shared a photo from his wedding to Burke for their anniversary. Neither Burke nor Lawrence has addressed the reported split on social media.
