Their son was born in 2013, They had their second child, a daughter in 2016 and they had their third child, another son in 2019. He was the first married contestant to win the American Idol. Of course, like every other couple, there was a takeaway from the romantic relationship in their life as well. Kris Allen confesses without any hesitation, in one of his episodes, which was airing on a Saturday at 11 a.m. on MTV, that when he was seventeen years old, he broke up with his Katy. Allen and his present wife Katy dated for a year when their final year of school rolled around and Kris thought that he needed space to rock out like a true senior.
He also clearly mentions later that he was being a jerk and that Katy was amicable. He mentioned that he wanted to be free as a bird and turned into a presumptuous guy back then. He said that he was always thriving for his own space without even realizing that nobody was trying to intrude in his private place. He also admits the fact that he became way too pretentious and that those were all the effects of hitting adolescence. He also repents for the fact as he thought that he probably should have realized this before but he was not exactly the type of guy who could move on from one girl to the other and then embrace the countless others. “I had no game with the ladies, but with her, it was really easy to go up and talk to, and everything just always clicked,” he said. He also mentions how everyone was always hyped up about their relationship.
Kris and Katy Allen get back together
As mentioned before, there was a slight distortion in their relationship so eventually, they split for a two-week break, and then both of them claimed it would end up being a permanent separation and both of them were getting ready for it. Kris mentioned that Katy really had a hard time dealing with the break-up because they could see each other and they often met at premiers and parties or other occasions and yet they were unable of calling each other couples and could not spend much time together. However, eventually, they got back together and ended up getting hitched shortly before Allen debuted on the eighth season of American Idol which was a grand success as he ended up winning. However, Kris still feels bad about how he treated his dearest darling back then. He clearly has begged for his apology to Katy and now they are a happy couple with their three little kids.
