Kacie McDonnell’s married life with Eric Hosmer
In her pregnancy announcement post, McDonnell mentioned that she first met her future husband on the same day in 2015, when Hosmer, a professional baseball player, left a ticket for her to opening day.
They eventually started dating and have never separated since. While talking about their relationship with The Spun in November 2019, McDonnell said, “Any relationship has challenges. When you add 3000 miles between two people, you would think it would become even more difficult to maintain… not the case!”
“We work so incredibly well together. It also helps that we’re dating when we are. Technology bridges the gap and allows us to talk and “see” each other every day. I think the foundation of our relationship is built upon our unwavering support of the other following their dreams.”
As she went on, she mentioned that Hosmer had been one of her biggest cheerleaders [suppoter] for almost four years and vice versa. “We find happiness in each other as well as each other’s success. He’s THE BEST,” she added.
In the end, she said, “Communication is key in any relationship — but especially so when you’re loving long distance. We’ve pretty much mastered it. And if I’m being totally honest, going to visit him when it’s single-digit temperatures in New York is not a bad thing!”
