The Band Perry Boys Reveal How They Feel About Kimberly’s New Fiance
Kimberly Perry of the Band Perry announced her engagement to Toronto Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia this week, much to the delight — and surprise — of fans. The singer’s younger brothers and bandmates Reid and Neil are not playing the role of protective siblings now that their sister is betrothed. In fact, they are super excited about the news, since they are already tight with the MLB star.
Truth be told, he’s practically part of the Perry family already.
“We’re really excited about it. We’ve gotten to know him over the past year and a half and it’s really great to include him as part of the family,” Reid says. “[J.P.’s] schedule complements ours, so when we’re on the road, he’s on the road doing his thing, and when we have time off, it’s all great to spend time together.”
Ah, the trials and tribulations of being a touring band and an active major leaguer.
Perry and Arencibia kept their relationship largely quiet since it began, but there was the occasional slip-up that exposed the pair in the media. Social media, that is! Neil once tweeted a photo of himself and his brother-in-law-to-be at an event, which was akin to spilling the beans.
“I tweeted a picture of me and [J.P.] at the CMAs a year and a half ago!,” Neil confesses. “But I think overall we did pretty good.”
Sounds like everything about the Perry-Arencibia pairing is good!
