The couple had met through Kate’s best friends, Sara and Erin Foster. She said:
“We’ve known each other for 15 years. He’s my best friend’s stepbrother. We kinda skipped through the part of knowing what the hiccups were. You kinda skip the part of going, ‘Oh, you’re like that?’”
“In terms of family, I’ve known his family forever. To have that connection is really powerful.”
