Savannah Chrisley only just confirmed she’s dating basketball player Luke Kennard, and already her famous dad Todd Chrisley is spilling the secrets behind their relationship! Apparently, Luke had his eye on Savannah for quite a while, but it took him a whole year to work up the courage to ask the former beauty queen out. It was worth the wait, though! Savannah recently gushed over her new boyfriend on Instagram, and even her hard-to-please dad admitted he’s a fan!
"We were actually at a restaurant — at Craig's — having dinner," Todd told Jason Kennedy on E! News. "[Luke] came in with his agent and his family, and their table was right beside ours.”
“After we left, he sent [Savannah] a message on Instagram and told her how beautiful she was,” Todd continued. “He didn't want to come over and bother our family but he wanted to let her know how beautiful he thought she was."
And the rest is history! Luke’s dad, however, revealed to Todd that Luke had actually wanted to ask Savannah out for a whole year but didn’t know how! "So when that happened he thought that was God telling him that's what he should do,” Todd said of the serendipitous meet-up at Craig’s.
And while Savannah is obviously a big fan of her basketball-playing beau, apparently her dad is, too! "We love him. He's a good, decent, honest, honorable young man,” Todd told E! News “He's very strong and committed to his faith. His family are quality, good, decent people."
"For me to be able to come on E! and say I actually like someone that my children are dating, there's a God!” Todd joked.
