Chilli says that she hopes to one day marry her boyfriend, Matthew Lawrence. The TLC singer admitted her plans for the future of their relationship during an interview with TMZ at Los Angeles International Airport, earlier this week.
When asked directly if there are wedding bells in their future, Chilli answered, "I hope so." One question Chilli wasn't willing to give an affirmative answer to was their plans for children. The interviewer brought up Lawrence's previous comments on wanting kids with the 52-year-old, but Chilli said they were taken out of context.

As for those comments, Lawrence discussed his plans for children during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, last month. "That's the game plan. That's what we're trying to do," he said at the time. "My life is in complete bloom right now. I get to spend time with an amazing woman like Chilli. I've never gotten to be able to experience that kind of relationship before. She's really, really special."
Once the remarks started gaining traction online, Lawrence released a statement to the outlet clarifying what he said. "[My brother] Joe and I were commiserating about this plan that we had to have children together...when we were growing up," Matthew explained. "And I missed the first go around and now he's starting a new family and I was thinking, 'Man, it'd be great if we could do it again, when I didn't have the chance to raise a family together.' So that's what I meant by that. I didn't mean to put any pressure on somebody I was dating or anything."
Chill and Lawrence have been officially dating since January, after confirming their relationship in a post on Instagram. Prior to dating Chilli, Lawrence was married to Cheryl Burke. The two finalized their divorce in 2022. Check out TMZ's interview with Chilli below.
