Ty Pennington, a popular broadcaster and former model, is now married to Kellee Merrell. The pair married in a tiny ceremony in Savannah, Georgia, with only eight people in attendance, on November 27.
The wedding was celebrated at a 19th-century house that Pennington and Merrell had repaired and is now being renovated.
Pennington proposed to Merrell during a morning coffee at his house in Palm Coast, Florida, in July 2021.
The famous carpenter posted a picture of his fiancee’s hand flaunting a teardrop-shaped stone on his Instagram. The caption read, “It’s the ‘yes’ for me…”
Ty Pennington claimed in an interview with People that he had liked Kellee Merrell for a long time.
He went on to say that their paths intersected at the perfect time, and it's a feeling that someone gets when they're with someone they like. He stated that he had never considered marrying, but Merrell changed his mind.
