Country artist Kelsea Ballerini celebrated her 28th birthday on September 14 with an attention-grabbing series of Instagram photos — plus a pretty cute video of her husband, Morgan Evans, surprising her with a celebration in Chicago!
The Tennessee-born star, who is currently on tour with the Jonas Brothers, shared a stunning photo of herself posing on a boat in a pretty yellow bikini. Curious fans who continued swiping on her series discovered that the boat trip was a result of some super-secret planning by her husband Morgan. It seems like he planned a surprise gathering in honor of Kelsea’s big day, and it’s safe to say she was shocked!
Kelsea also shared a few more images from the boat, including a sweet snap with her friends in a giant inner tube, as well as a very entertaining boomerang of the guys getting their groove on.
