Katie and Matthew have only been dating for a few months, but they already seem head-over-heels in love with each other, and Katie can't stop sweet tweeting about how perfect Matt is.
So who is the mysterious gent who stole Katie's heart? Matthew hails from Rock Springs, Wyoming, and currently works as a Flooring Installer at Lee's Floor Covering Installation and Service. Like Katie, Matt is a single dad who's completely devoted to his son, Asher — who, by the way, has become BFFs with Katie's daughter, Molli!
"My Asher with his his best friend Molli," Matt posted to Facebook along with a picture of the two musketeers. "Mental note, never again will we bring our children Christmas shopping, especially if we go out of town to do so!!!! An amazing, crazy as hell day!"
It looks like Matthew has a slightly dramatic past (he was arrested and incarcerated for 7.5 months last November!) but he says that in the last year he's "completely flipped" his life around — and he's stone-cold sober!
"I lived the life of a selfish man, but I try and put everyone before me these days, namely my son, my family, my girlfriend," Matthew reveals. "I've also eliminated so much of the violence and anger that shrouded my past. I'm not looking to fight anyone or even argue for that matter."
It seems like Katie is the number one reason Matt is so happy with his life, and he posted a shout-out to her on Facebook. "I have my sobriety, my friends, my amazing family, my incredibly intelligent and absolutely amazing son, and lastly, I believe I've met the love of my life."
Um, excuse us while we start sobbing hysterically with joy. Congratulations, Katie!
