Country music star Brett Young has never failed to express his endless love for his wife, Taylor Mills. Their dream-like love story is conveyed flawlessly in chart-topping hits – “In case you didn’t know,” “Sleep without you,” and more.
Although the two have been married for four years, the country crooner still seems to be on cloud nine. Young took to social media on Monday (August 1) night to wish her other half a happy and healthy birthday.
“Happy birthday to the best mother, wife, partner and friend I could ever dream of. You’re aging like a fine wine, baby!” he wrote next to an old photo. “Not sure how it’s possible, but you get more beautiful every day…inside and out. I love you more than you’ll ever know. Now let’s spend today (and the rest of the month, obviously) on to celebrate you and how much better you make the world for the people who know and love you! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Beautiful Girl!!!” he added.
Mills took to the comments to point out the recurring snapshot and to thank Young for being a wonderful husband.
“Thank you my sweet husband. Oh we were such babies in this picture 😍,” she said. “Love you so, so much!!! Thank you for making my day so special.”
The two dated for almost six years until “Mercy” the singer built up the courage to pop the question. Young dropped to one knee in his college town of Oxford, Mississippi. The two love birds tied the knot in Palm Desert, California in 2018. Ahead of their luxury golf club ceremony, the hitmaker gushed about his soon-to-be wife with PEOPLE.
“Being able to be best friends with someone you’re going to spend the rest of your life with is the most important thing,” he explained at the time. “She has a very pure, kind heart.”
Long before they decided to spend a lifetime together and welcome their daughters Rowan Marie and Presley Elizabeth into the world, the two took a break.
“Me and Taylor, my wife, broke up for two years and then got back together. The most painful breakup I ever went through was when I broke up with her,” he shared Big Machine Label Group. The hitmaker is convinced that an open and honest conversation brought them back together.
“A lot of it was us growing up. But the other part of it was when we got back together, we were both able to say, ‘this is what I did wrong,'” he shared. “We were able to have that conversation that was, ‘I don’t want to do that anymore. I want to be with you. I need you to tell me if I do that sometimes, because I’m just saying now that I don’t want to. If you point it out, I’ll stop.'”
The vocalist had his say label that they gave each other an ultimatum. They both agreed that they would make it work and change if they got back together.
“This is not going to be another try at this relationship. If we get back together, I’ll marry you and we’ll start a family,” he told his now-wife. “It was this whole very honest adult conversation.”
Young says communication is key to a happy relationship.
“We had that conversation, and we had it so early on when we started talking again that maybe only twice ever, in the last four years, have we had to say, ‘Ugh! This kind of feels like old us ,” he recalled. “And the second we say it, it’s like, ‘Awww, we hated old us!’ And it’s gone. And the teamwork in that whole thing, I think, is what worked.”
Their on-again, off-again relationship is expressed in his latest single, “No you did not.” Young is currently on the road performing live and sharing his relatable anthems. The multi-platinum artist wraps up his trek on Dec. 2 in Hollywood, Fl. For upcoming performances, visit brettyoungmusic.com.
