You might be bored by reading about his intro so let’s get right into the topic.
David Ross divorced his wife Hyla Ross last year even after they have been in a marriage relationship for more than a decade. Together they gave birth to three children. It is revealed that the couple first met each other during their high school days. They were friends at first but slowly their journey started from friend to lovers and lovers to a married couple. After getting engaged in the fall of 2001, the couple decided to walk down the aisle in February 2005.
Their first daughter was born in 2007 and her name is Landri Ross. Just after two years on 1st May 2009, they gave birth to their son and named him Cole Ross. They gave birth to their second daughter on 6th August 2015 and named her Harper Lynn Ross.
In the beginning, everything was fine and happy but their relationship started facing actual problems. One of the major problems in their relationship was “responsibilities” as Ross remained preoccupied with baseball responsibility. However, everything was about to get better after his retirement but then his coach responsibility started hunting him.
Their relationship started deteriorating and they decided to walk on different paths in life after 15 years of togetherness as they got divorced in 2020.
His current relationship status
David has already moved on and he is currently dating famous actress Torrey DeVitto. The actress had uploaded a black and white selfie of her and David where she is landing a kiss on his cheek on her Instagram account. She also captioned the photo as “Love him madly. with a red heart emoji”. You can watch the post down below.
But this is not the first time that the 37 years old Chicago Med star has teased her fans with relationship suspense. She had attended a Cubs game in Cincinnati previously and posted some cool photos. Of course, those cool photos include David, and we can also see her drawing a heart around his head. So what that means is that she was already prepared to make her relationship with David official in the public.
This relationship is very important for David as he divorced his wife last year. To look at the timing the gap between his divorce and his current relationship is not that much. So what it indicates is that the two might have met after his divorce and started developing feelings for each other.
Like David, Torrey was married to someone else. She was married to Paul Wesley for two years until they decided to get a divorce and filed for divorce in 2013. It is revealed that Torrey and Paul had met each other for the first time on the set of Killers movies in 2007. The reason for their divorce was revealed by Paul’s representative and said they have separated from the mutual decision. Luckily, there was no public chaos between them.
She had been in many relationships, unlike David. She had dated Jared Drake Bell in 2004, before marrying Paul. After her divorce from Paul, she started dating Carlos Munoz. She has also dated Rick Glassman and Artem Chigvinstev. As well as she was in a relationship with Jesse lee Sofferin in 2018.
It seems like the 37 years old has finally found her destined partner and the man of her dreams in David Ross. However, David Ross hasn’t made any comments in the public regarding his current relationship. But he keeps on commenting on her posts frequently on the comment section.
