Kane Brown and Katelyn Jae have proven how smitten they are with each other. The singer can’t seem to stop gushing over his wife. Guess everyone would agree that they are one of the cutest love stories in country music.
Here’s what we know about Kane Brown’s wife, Katelyn Jae.
1. She’s from Philadelphia
Jae was born on June 19, 1992, in Philadelphia in the suburb of West Chester.
Brown first announced the couple’s engagement while performing a concert in his fiancé’s hometown last year. “I just got engaged to a girl from Philadelphia two days ago. This is my first time making this announcement, but we’re in Philly, so I thought I had to go ahead and make the announcement, so thank you Philadelphia,” he announced to his audience.
2. Music Has Always Been Her Passion
Jae used to be ‘a nerdy theatre kid’ when she was three years old. She used to do auditions and musicals because she was so into Broadway.
“My mum and I used to take the train up to New York almost every weekend, either for an audition or to see a show. I wasn’t sure exactly how I was going to do it, but music has definitely always been my passion. I played sports but I never loved it as much as I did the arts”, Jae revealed.
In 2008, she placed in the top five in the 2008 International Model and Talent Association conference and represented the US in the 2010/2011 Avon Voices International Talent Search. And back in 2012, Jae won the first season of YOBI.tv and MySpace’s “Take the Stage” contest. She did not only took home a whopping $20,000 but as well as a management contract as the newest protégé of world-renowned music manager Johnny Wright of Pop Nation Entertainment.
3. She’s A Songwriter Too
Whenever Jae’s songwriting, she could write a song in about ten minutes; things just come down to her naturally. Now that’s pretty amazing!
“All I’d need is one of my friends there and they’d start playing a melody on the guitar or piano, and words would just start coming out of me. It was so therapeutic. I would leave a writing session and feel like a weight was off my chest,” Jae said.
Jae has always been a writer that she constantly buys notebooks for her projects and ideas and even for her day-to-day experiences.
4. She Chose a ‘Sleek and Simple’ Wedding Dress
Kane Brown’s wife, Katelyn Jae told PEOPLE that her ‘simple’ and ‘understated gown’ was one of the first few she put on while wedding dress shopping.
“I went to a few bridal shops and this was probably the fourth dress I tried. I just loved everything about it. I didn’t want a ton of extra fabric; I wanted something sleek and simple and this fit the bill,” Jae explained.
And the main factor that won her over? “I didn’t want a ton of extra fabric; I wanted something sleek and simple and this fit the bill,” she said about her body-skimming design with a long, flowy train. She completed her look with diamond earrings and crystal-embellished block heel Steve Madden sandals and kept her beauty look classic with long, flowy waves.
5. She Graduated College Alongside Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott
In May 2019, Jae graduated Berklee College of Music alongside Justin Timberlake and Missy Elliott. Brown turned to Instagram to share his excitement, posting a video of Katelyn Jae walking across the stage to receive her diploma.
Jae also wrote a heartfelt post about her experience in college. She said she will never forget the day she graduated and finishing her education was the most rewarding thing she has done for herself. She went on to thank her college and her husband. She also shared the oldest person who graduated in the class, who was 65, urging her followers to remember that it is never too late for them too.
“Here I am on cloud 9 and got to walk across the stage with our daughter and cannot wait to teach her one day to be a strong, independent woman and that she can do anything she wants to in this world!!!” Jae posted on her Instagram.
Later that day, Jae shared on her Instagram Stories that Brown threw her the best graduation party, and this includes balloons and Disney princesses Belle and Ariel. She even had a princess cake and rainbow macaroons before the party settled with dancing and a bonfire.
6. We Might Not See More of Katelyn Jae in Spotlight
And as far as continuing her career in music, Jae said that she doesn’t think she will go back to performing. Unfortunately, performing isn’t really Jae’s favorite part as it makes her “so nervous and I was extremely intimidated by it”.
“If I get back into music, it’ll be working in the studio and writing. I’ll leave the performing part to Kane! Every now and then, it is cool to get up and perform so maybe once in a while but I think I’m more of a behind the scenes girl,” the young mom said.
“Performing is a high, with all of the nerves and the adrenaline and then once you get off stage you’re like, “Oh my god that was amazing, I want to do it again!” But the anticipation, the days leading up to it, the rehearsal – it’s very stressful.”
So what’s next for Kane Brown’s wife, Katelyn Jae?
“I’ll just be focusing on being a mum, which will be a big learning experience. In the next five years, I’d like to get into more of my own projects and get back into being creative. I have so many ideas,” Jae explained.
Jae is a mom to five-month-old Kingsley Rose whom she wants to grow up “to be independent and speak her mind” and “walks her own path and confident in everything she does”.
Well, we’re rooting for you Katelyn Jae and your little family!
