106.1 KISS-FM radio host Kellie Rasberry, a longtime female voice on the late Kidd Kraddick's morning show, announced she is engaged to Allen Evans.
They found each other on Bumble, she admitted. Rasberry in fact "swiped left" — webspeak for when someone gives a virtual "no thanks" to a person whose photo or bio they don't like. But they still ended up going on several dates.
"I was at a place in my life where I wanted somebody," the radio host told NBC5.
Anyone who listens to KISS FM knows that Rasberry and her co-hosts "Big Al" Mack, Jose "J-Si" Chavez and Jenna Owens tell plenty of personal stories about their love lives and their kids. Nothing's too safe when you're dating a radio host, it seems.
New fiance Evans waited four dates until he tried to kiss her, Rasberry told NBC5 in an exclusive interview. Rasberry, who's known for her lovable complaints, said his apparent chivalry wasn't exactly a good thing:
"I thought it was going nowhere," she says, "but he won me over."
He proposed in mid-February by turning over a playing card that said, "Will you marry me?"
NBC5 anchor Meredith Land reports they're looking to get married in July.
Their family will include four kids: Rasberry's 10-year-old Emma Kelly and Evans' three kids.
[Correction: This story previously said Rasberry and Evans met on Tinder. It was Bumble. This writer found herself romantically involved before Bumble or Tinder existed, which might explain -- but does not excuse -- the error.]
