It Was Nathalie Kelley Who Proposed To Jordy Burrows
Nathalie and Jordy married in April 2018 but ended their union in June 2020.
The Lima-born actress is one of the few who break the norm. Hence, she was the one who landed on the road to go to her then-boyfriend Jordy and asks him to marry her.
A few months after the wedding, the Peruvian-born actress, who grew up in Australia, opened up about her and Brovs’ big day and shared the story of how she proposed to her ex-lover.
In an interview for the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar Australia, Kelly said, “She said, ‘It was very important to me that he be with his lover,
‘He was everything I’d ever wanted in a partner.’
Kelly had recently finished playing Crystal Carrington in Dynasty and was enjoying her time off with Brooks.
Jordy Burrows’ Wife Kelley Asked Him To Marry Her Without A Ring
The Baker And The Beauty star revealed that after visiting Tulum, Mexico, and Atlanta together, Natalie felt she had found “the one” and decided to ask her to marry her.
They enjoyed a holiday in the hard-to-reach city of Merida, the capital of the Yucatán province with its colorful Mayan and colonial heritage, a four-hour drive west of Tulum.
A month after their holiday in Mexico, Kelly proposed engagement to Burrows. Kelly says she was filming in Atlanta at the time and eventually proposed to him one night at their hotel. At the time, they had only been together for three months.
“It was actually our ordeal driving to Mérida that led me to propose. I knew if he could put up with me tired and slightly hungover on a road trip, not to mention arguing with police about the toll, then he could be my husband,”
admitted the Vampire Diaries alumna. She revealed that there was no planning and not even a ring.

Kelley And Burrows Had Their Wedding Over The Water
Burrows and Natalie planned their wedding over two months. Kelly said in an interview that both she and Jordy wanted something inconspicuous and nothing over the top. They both wanted it to be in Australia, by the harbor, so they got married at The Island [a floating beach club] in Potts Point, Sydney.
The couple had also decided to spend their future together in Australia. Kelly’s mother did all the flower arrangements for the wedding. Her family sent 200 maracas from Peru as a wedding present.
The ceremony also included performances by samba dancers. Guests included the bride’s friend Jade Yarbrough, as well as Natalia Dynasty colleague Rafael de la Fuente.
All present received maracas as John Paul Young’s Love Is In The Air hit the dance floor. Before Jordy, Nathalie candidly met her Vampire Diaries co-star Zach Roerig.
Jordy Burrows Separation Rumors Started In Early 2020
Kelly and Burrows divorce rumors began to surface in early 2020. This happened after fans noticed that they hadn’t been on each other’s Instagram accounts for months. However, in April of the same year, Jordy confirmed that they were still very much together.
‘Nathalie and I are still married,’
announced the Australian DJ on social media.
Burrows also said that he was in Australia at the time for family reasons, while his wife had to stay in the US for work. Explaining the absence of each other on their Insta profiles, the DJ said they had made the decision to remove their relationship from the photo-sharing app to preserve their privacy.
Nathalie Kelley Affirmed Her Breakup With Burrows
Although Jordy himself admitted that everything was fine between him and Kelly, the truth is that the couple did have a falling out.
This became clear when, in August 2021, Jordy’s then-wife Kelly confirmed her divorce from husband Burrows by sharing an Instagram post showing her with her now-boyfriend Andrés Alonso on holiday in Italy.
Burrows’ ex-wife highlighted her affair with boyfriend Andrés Alonso in a series of photos from their holiday in Italy. Natalie posed with her long-haired beauty on the shores of the Bay of Naples.
Kelly and Alonso had also previously appeared together on the red carpet of a UNICEF fundraising event organized by sponsor Luisa Via Roma, a fashion retailer. Kelly and Alonso are said to have been traveling together for at least six months before the Italy gate.
Andres first appeared on Natalia’s Instagram account in January. The post at the time included a photo of Burow’s ex-partner posing with Andrés by a pool in Atlixco, central Mexico.
All the pictures of Alonso started appearing after news broke that Natalia had quietly separated from Jordy. As reported, after her divorce from Kelly, Jordi moved to Byron Bay.
How Rich Is Jordy Burrow’s Ex-Wife, Nathalie Kelley
Although Natalie has been active in the showbiz industry for over 15 years, it seems that she has not had many breakthroughs or profitable screen appearances. Although she is an average actress herself, the Tokyo Drift star has yet to get her breakthrough role. One that could catapult her into the big league of the entertainment world.
However, Kelly is, by most estimates, doing well, with a net worth of over half a million.
Although the other thing that is not very practical to talk about is the wealth of her ex-partner, Jordy Burrows. Mainly because Burrows is much less talked about in magazines. Moreover, there is virtually no mention of his financial gains.
