“Dane is so in love with Kelsi,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “He treats her as though she’s his wife even though he’s said he’ll never get married.”
The insider notes that Cook, 46, approached this romance differently than his past love connections. “This is definitely the most serious relationship he’s had so far,” the source adds. “He doesn’t talk to any other women anymore and before her he used to have lots of one-night stands.”
The actor first posted a photo with the 20-year-old singer in April 2017. “My girl @itskelsitaylor is one of my favorite people on the planet,” he wrote via Instagram at the time. “She’s a talented singer but more importantly she’s a genuine person.”

Clearly this isn’t working out for us.
Yesterday @itskelsitaylor & myself prepared and cooked for her family and mine! It was an incredible day eating, laughing, watching football, eating, cleaning up, eating and eating. I ate my weight in leftovers before midnight.
I could not be more thankful to have spent it with KT. Thx to her mom @debalma for making the best mashed potatoes & gravy.
I always celebrate my parents by trying to make it a peaceful relaxed day since they were not always great at that haha (had to be there I guess).
No one I would rather spend time with more than @itskelsitaylor. Strong, kind, communicative, sassy, fun and most of all loving. Thx for being there on my journey Kels and inviting me on yours. #toinfinityandbeyond
At The Little Door with @itskelsitaylor who is real & cool as well as kind & hot.
What she said!
I balanced my phone on a tree branch while we balanced on a log and this was the result! Two little love birds in the middle of a forest. 🐥🌲
Thank you @Pillsbury for gifting @itskelsitaylor & I with your Creamy Supreme Vanilla Frosting.
It’s delicious and so very hydrating!
I can’t tell you how incredible my gf is you just have to trust me when I say I’m in amazing hands.
She is also very lucky because I’m pretty rad (and I mean rad as it was said in 1998 not the faux hip retro way people use it today with that tone like “heyyy mannnn I just used raaaaaaad.”)
Kelsi thank you for so many nights filled with laughter, days filled with creative thoughts & expressions and mostly thx for the love.
@itskelsitaylor + @danecook = 😊
Meals + conversations with the one I love 🥰 @danecook Mostly just trying to figure out how to crack the code in this simulation.
Had an amazing weekend celebrating my sister @britneyalmaguer‘s wedding. So happy for you and John 💍✨ Your love for each other is so apparent and I’m so excited to see where life takes you! Love you, Brit. ❤️ (thanks for being my hot date, @danecook)

Happy birthday to the light of my life. You are so compassionate, loving, hilarious, strong, talented, and have a heart of gold. Your energy is infectious and your crazy creative mind inspires me every day. I love you, babe. So happy you were born today & I’ve been able to spend one whole trip around the sun with you!
one last pic from maui !! too many good ones I have to share. #sorrynotsorry
Saved the best sunset for last.
happy valentine’s day 🌹❤️ love you endlessly.
What I want people to know about me is that all I live for in this life is love, creativity, and honesty. If you take anything from watching me and my journey on social media, see the love in my heart and the truth in my music. I pour my soul into everything I do. Everyone has their own truth and not everyone has to agree with mine. All I can ever stress upon anyone is to always allow others to live their truth without judgment and without negativity. After all, this life is short. Wouldn’t it be a nicer world if everyone was happy and kind to one another? We all have room in our hearts to love just a little more.
gotta heart as sweet as his face #best
right before we flew through the trees in the maui skies 🌴🐒🍃

Cook gushed over Taylor on Instagram again in January 2018. “The next few months are work hard / play hard ones. I’m grateful to my friends and fans who continue to support my artistic endeavors,” he captioned the post. “I can’t get to where I’m going without this foundation of support. … My gf @itskelsitaylor who quite simply is a gift. #bestlaughs.”
The Employee of the Month star joked about the pair’s age difference during an August 2018 Instagram Q&A. “The only thing you have to do is plan that your deaths will be somewhat far apart,” he replied when a fan asked for relationship advice.
He also recalled how his romance with Taylor escalated. “We met at a game night I host at my place,” he wrote. “We were friends for a while & soon after fell in like with each [other] and then upgraded to love.”
Cook went on to rave about the musician’s best qualities. “Kelsi is smart, kind, creative, loyal & honest,” he noted. “As for me, I think Kelsi would [say] I’m tolerable. LOL.”
