Kelsea Ballerini and Chase Stokes have quickly become one of the internet’s favorite celebrity couples, and the duo just upped the cuteness factor with the sweetest Christmas Day photos.

On Dec. 26, the “Penthouse” singer shared an Instagram carousel packed with holiday fun. The cover photo was an adorable snap of the pair and their two dogs all wearing matching pajamas. The pic was taken in front of a lush and sparkly Christmas tree, as Stokes planted a kiss on Ballerini’s forehead.

Other pics featured board games, group poses, seasonal treats and more. Stokes, 30, and Ballerini, 31, were also pictured wearing matching holiday sweaters with reindeer and the word “Horny” stitched across the front.

“My anticipation level for this holiday/Chase dump was too high I gotta chill, but also it 100% lives up,” one of Ballerini’s two million followers noted in the comments. “Thanks for sharing your joy. Love you. Happy holidays 🤍.”

“I love the ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ pictures of Chase and Kelsea,” another person gushed.

“From matching pjs to matching sweaters 😍,” someone else concurred.

“The matching pajamas melt my heart! 😭❤️ you are the most precious family,” an additional user wrote.

The celebrity power couple have been dating since last December, when Ballerini casually slid into Stokes’s Instagram DMs. 

“I was just like, ‘Why am I waiting for this guy to reach out to me? This is 2022,’” she told Nylon of her bold move, which clearly paid off. “... Listen, I was living my best life. I have no shame in that game.”
