9 Times Love And Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles And Wife Jenna Were ‘Couple Goals’


As fans of country duo Love and Theft, the person we are used to seeing Stephen Barker Liles with is his bandmate, Eric Gunderson. Believe it or not, in between touring the country and playing country music shows, these two men do spend time at their respective homes with their wives and children!

Liles popped the question to Jenna Kennedy on May 28, 2013 and they had their son, the adorable Jett Barker Liles, on December 2, 2013. They were married on August 24, 2014 and have since welcomed a second child, daughter Rayni Bell Liles, on June 8, 2017.

Their absolutely adorable pregnancy announcement for Rayni was the talk of the town around Christmastime. Fans loved their reveal where they opened up a present and a “It’s a Girl” balloon slowly flew out of the box. See the magical moment below. 

If you thought this video was the only cute moment we have of the Stephen and Jenna, you’d be totally wrong! Let’s take a look at 8 more times they were “couple goals”!

1. Their Wedding Day



Stephen and Jenna were married on August 24, 2014 at The Ruby, a boutique event center in Nashville, Tennessee. According to PEOPLE, they previously dated seven years ago, went their separate ways, and reconnected on Facebook. We’re glad they did because they make one cute couple!


2. When Stephen Threw It Way Back On Social Media


Like we mentioned earlier, Jenna and Stephen dated several years before they were married, and thanks to a Valentine’s Day tribute from Stephen – there is now proof! In the top photo is the baby-faced couple and the bottom, a more recent snapshot of them. They look just as cute, and even more happy!

3. When They Kissed In The Rain


Every girl dreams of that one romantic moment of being kissed in the rain. Romantic comedies have trained us to crave it, and Jenna had her rom-com dream come true when Stephen planted a big one on her with the rain in the background. All together now: Awwwww! 

4. When They Shared a Motorcycle


While on vacation with friends in 2014, they went sightseeing and each couple shared a motorcycle. Stephen and Jenna are the cutest tourist couple and they definitely stick out in the photo – especially waving that American flag!

5. When They Were An Adorable Family Of Three


Before little Miss Rayni came along, they were a family of three – just Stephen, Jenna and Jett. They adore their little man who has grown into a hockey loving, guitar playing, larger than life toddler. 

6. When They Took A Stroll On The Beach


One thing that may be more romantic than a kiss in the rain, is a long walk on the beach with the love of your life. Stephen and Jenna sure know how to make everyone jealous of their love! This is a picture perfect scene straight out of a movie!

7. When They Had Date Night


As parents, “date night” is very important. Of course you love your children, but marriages take work, and you need to spend some quality alone time together. Stephen and Jenna are very aware of that and take any chance they have to have a fun date night together.

8. When They Cheered For The Same Team


Stephen is a big football fan, and has passed that love on to his wife and now, his son Jett! Last year, they all cheered on the Broncos, with Jett and Stephen wearing matching Peyton Manning jerseys. Adorable!
