Making my fiancée @itskelsitaylor laugh is my favorite sound. I love her with all my heart. We’ve made beautiful memories over the last five years. There’s so much to celebrate as we look forward together.
Girlfriend Kelsi Taylor, now fiancee also posted two photos and wrote,
Fiancé has a nice ring to it 💍. The secret’s out! @danecook and I are engaged ✨ A couple weeks ago, Dane got on one knee and asked me to be his wife and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect moment. I love this man and love spending my life with him. I can’t wait for what’s to come.
The couple looks happy and very much in love despite the fact that their engagement created a huge controversy over their huge age difference. As for their ages, Dane is 50 whereas his girlfriend is 23 years old which makes her 27 years younger than her fiancee.
No wonder the internet has exploded into slating Dane Cook for getting with a woman who is not even half his age yet. They are grossed out and disgusted with him and calling him a 'groomer' for going out with a woman in spite of that big huge age difference. They are especially creeped out because his new fiancee was just a teenager when they started dating. The couple started dating in 2017 after Kelsi Taylor turned 18.
Dane Cook had gotten backlash for dating girlfriend Kelsi Taylor since they began their relationship in 2017. He is very well aware of the things people had been saying about him on the internet. But he never seemed to care about all those criticisms. Once, addressing more than 25 years of age difference between them, he even joked about it in a 2019 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live,
Sometimes I actually find myself saying where has she been all my life. And then I realize she wasn’t alive for the first 26 years of it. People are like, ‘You’re robbing the cradle.’ I was like, ‘She hasn’t slept in a cradle for, like, nine years.’
Dane Cook has never taken backlash seriously and always made jokes like that about the age difference between him and Kelsi Taylor. No amount of negative comments was able to make him keep their relationship a secret. In fact, he has always been very open about dating his girlfriend.
The comedian revealed in 2018 during Instagram Stories Q&A that he first met Kelsi Taylor at a game night he hosted at his home. He explained further that they remained friends 'for a while' before they 'fell in like with each other and then upgraded to love.'
