Savannah Chrisley’s broken engagement with Nic Kerdiles came as a shock to most fans, but their romance just ran its course. HollywoodLife has learned what went wrong and how Savannah and Nic are coping after the split.
Savannah Chrisley and Nic Kerdiles‘ engagement may have ended, but they’re still closer than ever. — That’s due in part to the ex-couple’s mutual understanding that they’re just not the right fit for one another. The Chrisley Knows Best star, 23, announced her split from the pro hockey player, 26, nearly two years after getting engaged in a post on Instagram on September 16. The news came after Savannah revealed in June that the couple decided to postpone their nuptials “to work on things on a different level.” — A decision that wasn’t an easy one.
“When they took a step back from their engagement, it was hard for them,” a source close to Savannah told HollywoodLife, exclusively. “They had to look at their relationship and the pressures that come with a wedding. She’s very much a type-A personality, and Nick is more laid back, so they found out that that combination didn’t work well and the relationship fizzled,” the insider explained, adding, “She’s got a very strong personality and they just didn’t mesh well for anything long term.”

They had a great three years together, but she’s ready to move on as difficult of a decision as that may be. It’s still sad for them both, but there’s no bad feelings,” the insider revealed. “It just wasn’t the right fit. But, they’re still so young. She’s super into faith, so in her eyes, what was meant to be must be part of a bigger plan. They really are the best of friends and plan on continuing that friendship. It’s very real and honest.”

“I just knew we had to work on things on a different level,” she said on the June 17 episode of the Chrisley Confessions podcast. “We had to dig deeper and it’s hard. It’s 2020 and you know what, it’s okay not to follow the guidelines and the whole timeframe that everyone follows,” Savannah explained, adding, “We both realized that things moved way too fast and we needed to go back to dating.”
