Rachelle Lefevre has been in a long term relationship with chef and TV personality Chris Crary. According to reports, the two began seeing each other in 2013 after they first established contact on a social media platform.

She proceeded to take him up on his offer, going to the restaurant and having a good night eating incredible food and drinking great wine.
