Sylvester and Kimes tied the knot in 2015 and are thought to have begun dating around 2012. However, there has been some recent speculation online as to whether the pair are still together as they don’t post a lot of photos together.
Kimes can still be seen wearing her wedding ring in her most recent Instagram posts, so we can assume they are still together.
The couple don’t have kids but do own a cute little dog called Lenny.
