In September, Alan Jackson‘s eldest daughter, Mattie, announced her engagement to Connor Smith. The engagement occurred four years after Mattie’s husband, Ben, passed away.
After losing Ben, Mattie prayed she’d find love again one day. She found that love with Connor.
“Feeling overwhelmingly thankful, excited, and thrilled for this kind-of-surprise but so-fervently-prayed for ENGAGEMENT…” Mattie captioned a series of photos she shared after she and Connor got engaged. “I love your playful spirit and your kind heart and your infectious-ness for life, Connor Smith. I cannot wait to be your wife and build a family with you! You are the biggest blessing in the dang cutest package. Love you baby.”
