Lauren Alaina and her longtime boyfriend, Alex Hopkins, are definitely in the running for the title of favorite country couple these days. Though they’re still in their early 20s, Lauren and Alex have been together for quite a while now. They knew other growing up in Georgia before they both made the move to Nashville.
Now that Lauren is enjoying a rapidly rising country music career, she and Alex get to go on pretty amazing trips. They took this photo together during a recent trip to the Caribbean, and it’s truly the picture of a man and woman pretty happy with life — and each other — right now.
Alex posted the photo on Instagram with the caption, “Lauren Alaina, you’re my best friend.”
Fans just ate this up with one of them commenting, “Y’all are seriously, without a doubt, the cutest couple ever.”
Another fan couldn’t help but notice how fit they’re both looking these days. One fan even commented about Alex, “That 8-pack though!”
We asked Lauren about her relationship with Alex, as she writes about it in her new love song, “Holding the Other.”
Through all of the demands of her career, Alex has been right by her side.
She tells Rare Country, “He’s been so patient and so kind. He’s really good for me. I couldn’t have done it without him. I probably could’ve, but I probably would have been a little worse off.”
“Holding the Other” is included on Lauren’s latest album, “Road Less Traveled,” available now.
