Kevin Lazan Married, Relationship with Rachel Platten
Lazan’s relationship with Rachel Platten is the reason why he is well known to the media. The couple met in 2006 and thanks to Lazan’s affinity for music and movies, it was easy for Platten to fall in love with him. “We just clicked instantly,” Rachel once said about her meeting Kevin.” She added; Kevin is kind and brilliant, he loves music and is an incredible movie-quoter, something I rate very highly.”
However, their first date wasn’t exactly the perfect one. Describing it, Platten once said; “It (first date) was really gross, dingy, Lower East Side dungeon kind of bar. It [looked] like lesbian night that night, so there was a lot of women snuggling, which is totally cool. But he was really embarrassed. He was like, ‘Oh my god, this is not what I meant to bring you to. Oh my god.’ I think his friend was punking him.”
After 6 solid years of dating, the couple decided to marry in 2012. The ceremony was a Jewish one held at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island.
Speaking to New England Weddings about her big day, Platten said; “I realized [planning a wedding] could be just as artistic as writing a song. I really dove into it.”
Platten and Kevin have each supported the other’s career. Speaking fondly of her husband to US Weekly, Platten said; “I’m married to an amazing man, we’ve been together for 10 years, and he’s a huge reason why I kept believing in my dreams.” Her song Superman was dedicated to her husband who was struggling with his sick dad at the time, Platten was away recording the album and thus, she thought it wise to write a song as a means of supporting her husband from miles away.
“I couldn’t be there as much as I wanted to be there. I felt really selfish and like I wasn’t being a good partner. And the only thing I could do was write him a song, right? I’m like 3,000 miles away, and I wrote him that song, being like, you have been there for me, very loving and very supportive. And look, you don’t have to be strong right now. I got you. So I’m really glad I got to include that one.”
Kevin and Rachel are yet to begin building a family together. As of this writing, they have no kids.
