Blake and Vanessa met in 2019 at Southern Grounds. She told him she had a child's birthday party to go to on a Wednesday night at 9pm after they were done, just in case.... He obviously knew this was not true because Blake had two kids and knew no one would ever plan a kid's party that late on a weekday. After a cup of coffee and some good laughs Blake asked Vanessa out to dinner and to dinner they went. From that point on they have been inseparable.
