Kid Rock Reportedly Engaged to Longtime Girlfriend
Kid Rock is engaged to longtime girlfriend Audrey Berry, according to multiple sources including the Detroit Free Press. Berry was seen on Rock's 2017 Chillin' the Most Cruise sporting a large diamond.
Photos of the singer's wife-to-be and her new rock began circulating after fans made landfall again following the cruise, which hit the seas from April 4-9.
The Free Press reports that Rock actually proposed earlier this year, but that the couple have been quiet about the news. This has been common in their relationship, which developed after Rock's divorce from Pamela Anderson in 2007.

"This is somebody who is not a celebrity. It can really be a tough thing to deal with," Rock told Piers Morgan in 2011, speaking of his relationship with the not-famous Berry. "I’m thinking of somebody else, trying not to be so selfish."
Kid Rock began his career as a rapper in Detroit's underground scene, but his influences include classic rock and country, and beginning with his album Cocky in 2001, he moved his sound more in those directions. He scored a big hit with “Picture,” a country ballad he recorded as a duet with Sheryl Crow, and he’s also hit with “All Summer Long."
Prior to his marriage to Anderson, Kid Rock — whose real name is Robert James Ritchie — had a son, Robert Jr., from a previous relationship. He has raised his son as a single father. He and Anderson wed in July 2006 after it was reported that she was pregnant. That November it was reported that she had suffered a miscarriage, and on Nov. 27, 2006 Anderson filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences.
According to the Free Press, Kid Rock and Berry met in Detroit in the late 2000s. They have not commented publicly on reports of their engagement.
