Zac Brown, a country music star, is getting married to model and actress Kelly Yazdi

Zac Brown is getting married!

Multiple sources tell PEOPLE that the country star, who is 44, popped the question to Kelly Yazdi, who is 31, earlier this year. “He asked her to marry him in Hawaii a while ago,” says one person. “It was a very private event, and the couple hasn’t told anyone about it.” Even though they rarely post photos or videos of themselves together, Yazdi has been on tour with the Zac Brown Band at least since July, when she was shown in an Instagram post celebrating Zac’s birthday while on the road. In the clip, Yazdi stands close to her now-fianc√© in a group setting, and it looks like she has an engagement ring on her finger.

Yazdi is a “born adventurer, events producer, SAG-AFTRA actress, stuntwoman, and professional model,” according to her personal website. The Minnesota-born adventurer wears many hats, but as a motorcyclist, she says she is a “spokesman for living with passion.” She also started the organization Ride Wild, which was meant to change how women are seen in power sports and motorsports. Yazdi has acted in TV shows like Hawaii Five-O and Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Ranch Challenge. She has also been in movies like The Martial Arts Kid and the documentary Herb Ritts: L.A. Style. IMDB says that you can see her stunt work in Katy Perry’s “Harleys in Hawaii” music video. Brown and his then-wife Shelly told PEOPLE in 2018 that they were getting divorced after 12 years of marriage. They share children; Alexander who is 8 years old, Joni is 11, Georgia is 12, Lucy is 14, and Justice is 15. “We feel lucky to be on such a great journey through life, but sometimes it starts to go in different directions. The couple who got married in 2006 said, “It is with deep love and respect that we tell you we are splitting up.”We have lived a whirlwind life together, growing into a beautiful family with five amazing children. Life will be changing a bit, but our love and commitment to our family will always be there,” they said. “This was a hard choice, but we’ve been through a lot of hard things together, and this is our next challenge.

We’re moving forward with love, respect, and care for each other.” Brown and his band have had a busy year. In September, they put out a deluxe version of their 2021 record The Comeback. Since the album came out, they just finished a tour. In March, they will go on tour overseas, and in June, they will play at more festivals. This year, the group also grew when Caroline Jones joined. She was the first full-time female member of ZBB. Jones opened for the band on their tour in 2017, and they asked him to join them on their next two tours. Later, in 2021, the band asked her to be a special guest on The Comeback Tour. They also asked her to be a special guest on their most recent Out in the Middle tour. Jones, who is 32 years old, told Entertainment Tonight that becoming an official member of Zac Brown Band is the biggest honor of his career so far. “It means more to me than I can say to be accepted not only as a singer and songwriter, but also as a musician and a family member. Zac added, “It seems like Caroline has been a part of Zac Brown Band for years.” She has been on a few tours with us and has also helped us make music in the studio. He said, “She is family and a badass musician.” “She works the hardest and has the highest voice.”
