Who Is Luke Bryan’s Wife, Caroline Boyer? Let’s get to know better the beautiful Mrs. Bryan!
After over a decade of marriage and several red carpet appearances together, singer and American Idol Judge Luke Bryan, Caroline Boyer, are absolutely country music royalty.
But did you know that their relationship hasn’t always been smooth sailing? Let’s take a look back at their love story and how they made it through the good times and the bad.
The Rocky Beginning
Luke Bryan and Caroline Boyer first met back in fall 1998, when they were still attending Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia. She was just a freshman, and he was a senior then, but when he spotted her across the room at a bar one night, he knew at that very moment they’re going to spend the rest of their lives together.
“It took me eight seconds to figure it out,” Luke told The Boot. So the lovestruck songster mustered up the courage to talk to her. “I had to drink a lot before I could go talk to her, but I did. Somehow I managed to ease over there and somewhat be charming,” he continued. “It was one of those situations for me, it was like, ‘Who is that and how do I go talk to her? And, yep, I’m going to marry that girl.'”
Caroline Boyer, on the other hand, felt terrified meeting her future husband during her very first week in college. “And he’s such a big personality that I was just staring at him, like, ‘Is this guy for real?’ ‘Cause he is how he is. It is not fake. It is totally real,” she said.
They began dating, and things went smoothly for the couple, not until Caroline broke it off after a year and a half. Luke graduated and was also moving to Nashville to chase his dream of becoming a country superstar. But Caroline was still working on her degree at the University.
“I got freaked out because he was talking about marriage,” Caroline recalled, adding that the breakup “was horrible. It was Christmas of my sophomore year.”
Love Is Sweeter The Second Time Around
Several years after and two serious relationships later, Caroline Boyer finally crossed paths again with Luke. The country singer was playing a show in Statesboro on a night that Caroline happened to be in town, so she decided to stop by and watch. “I saw him playing, and something was different … we were older,” she recalled.
She left when Luke took a break, and he ended up calling her at 3 AM – the rest was history. “After that, we started texting, and we saw each other at Christmas, and we’ve been together ever since,” she revealed.
And finally, on December 8, 2006, she officially became Caroline Boyer Bryan. The two got hitched in Turks & Caicos and spent their honeymoon in the Colorado mountains.
Soon after they got married, Caroline found out she was pregnant with her and Luke Bryan’s first child. The couple welcomed Thomas Boyer Bryan (who they fondly call “Bo”), into the world in March 2008.
Two years later, they were again blessed with their second son, Tatum Christopher Bryan (who goes by “Tate”). However, their family extends beyond just Bo and Tate. Luke and Caroline took in the singer’s two nieces, Jordan and Kris, along with his nephew, Til. Luke’s brother-in-law Ben passed away in 2014 while his sister died unexpectedly seven years earlier. Ben’s death left the three children without parents.
“We never thought twice about [adopting the kids],” Caroline said. “You know, it was never something that he and I had to sit down and talk about. ‘Should we take this on?’ We just did that.”
That makes them one big happy family. Luke and Caroline celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2017, and the happy wife was spotted with a new massive diamond ring she was wearing on her ring finger. The blinding diamond ring was a very special gift Luke gave Caroline for their 10th anniversary.. “It was a little 10-year anniversary gift. Ten years with me feels like a thousand,” he jokingly told PEOPLE. “It was certainly the least I could do!”
