The suspense is over, folks! It appears that Lainey Wilson is officially off the market.

The rising country star had been surrounded by rumors of a romantic connection with former Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback, Devlin “Duck” Hodges, for a few weeks. The speculation gained traction when Lainey and her entire band sported Hodges jerseys while opening for Luke Combs in Pittsburgh on April 29th.

They exchanged flirty tweets following that performance.

However, the rumors can now be put to rest as the couple made their relationship status public at the 2023 ACM Awards, walking the “black” carpet together.

Duck proudly accompanied his girlfriend, Lainey, who had an exceptional night, taking home an impressive four awards. Their appearance together at the event solidified their commitment to each other, leaving no doubt about their romantic involvement. Capture more glimpses of their enchanting evening through the photos below.

Hodges was signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2019.

Hodges earned the nickname “Duck” at Samford University, where he played from 2014-2019, due to his skill at duck calling. In fact, he is a world champion duck caller!  See his skills here.


And don’t miss the delightful sight of them walking the red carpet as a couple in the video clip provided.
