Who Is Kyle Chrisley's Wife, Ashleigh Nelson?

"Chrisley Knows Best" star Kyle Chrisley has had it rough through the years. For starters, for many years, Kyle was estranged from his father Todd Chrisley as well as the rest of the Chrisley dynasty. In 2019, however, following Todd and his wife Julie Chrisley's indictment for tax evasion, Kyle revealed that he had settled his differences with his parents. "9 months ago I went to my dad with an apology. His words were 'I love you always, and you are forgiven' and just like that I was welcomed back into his life with open arms," Kyle wrote in a Facebook post. "I will be forever grateful for his love [and] graciousness."

In addition to fixing his relationship with his family, Kyle has also turned his own life around for good. The former reality star battled substance addiction for many years, leading to multiple arrests over the years. These days however, Kyle is clean and seemingly living a healthier life. "Kyle's doing really well now. He's clean and sober," brother Chase told InTouch Weekly. "At the end of the day, he's family. We love him ... We forgive him, and I mean, that's all that we can do."

These days however, Kyle is not just enjoying love from his family, the former reality star also has a strong support system in his wife Ashleigh Nelson.

Ashleigh Nelson always knew she would marry Kyle Chrisley

Though it is uncertain when exactly they started dating, Kyle Chrisley and Ashleigh Nelson have been appearing on each other's social media since as far back as 2019. And then in February 2021, Chrisley popped the big question. "I couldn't imagine my life without you and now I don't have to. I love you so much @ashleighcnelson I'm so happy you said yes," he wrote in an Instagram post announcing their engagement. Nelson also announced her engagement on Instagram, posting an adorable selfie showing off her ring. "I've been keeping my life super private ... I'm always worried about what people may think but ya know what, f*** what they say, we're getting married!!," she captioned.

One month after their engagement, Chrisley and Nelson had their wedding. And If Chrisley ever had any doubts about his future with Nelson, she knew all along that they would be spending forever together. "I've always known from the beginning that Kyle is who I would marry," Nelson told People following their nuptials. "To know the Chrisleys is to love them, and Kyle is no different ... Kyle says he hopes he can be half the husband his dad is to Julie."

She 'saved' Kyle

In celebration of her 31st birthday in July 2021, Kyle Chrisley shared a sweet Instagram post, wishing his wife Ashleigh a happy birthday in the caption, while also crediting her for filling his life with happiness. Chrisley added: "You have saved my life in so many ways and have shown me what true love from a woman really is you are my best friend I could not imagine life without you by my side." The former reality star also thanked Nelson for all she had done in his life, noting that "a man is only as strong as the woman he has beside him."

In March 2022, Chrisley's marriage to Nelson turned one, and to mark the milestone, he yet again took to Instagram with a post where he described her as the best thing to ever happen to him. "Thank you baby for helping me become a better man and showing me how love is supposed to feel," Chrisley wrote. "I love you with all my heart and I could never put in words how much you really mean to me thank you and I love you."

Nelson, on the other hand, has also credited her husband for changing her life and being there for her always. "I love you more than words could ever tell and I will forever be grateful to God for placing you in my life," she wrote in an April 2021 post.
