Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney showed off his girlfriend Ashley Cruger to international audiences when he attended the Monte Carlo Television Festival last weekend. But what do we know about her? Let’s find out more together!
Around April 2022, Taylor Kinney made an appearance at Operation Smile’s 10th Annual Celebrity Ski and Smile Challenge with none other than his new girlfriend Ashley Cruger and packed on the PDA with her. While posing on the red carpet, Taylor kissed Ashley for all to see. And these very public displays of affection on camera imply that things are serious between the two.
It is undefined how long the two have been dating, though fans suspect they go back to sometime in the fall of 2021. Also, the couple allegedly met up with event hostess Brooke Burke and her fiancé Scott Rigsby. And it was Deuxmoi, a gossip account on Instagram, that reportedly outed their romance.
In 2019, Taylor was spotted kissing a mystery woman at the Columbia Kettle Works in Pennsylvania in photos obtained by DailyMail.com. As for this, one could still not tell if, at the time, it was Ashley. Anyway, the couple seems to be going strong
As of April 2022, Ashley Cruger is 26 years old.
Much like her boyfriend, Ashley keeps her personal life out of the limelight, but we can confirm that she works as a model. Ashley’s currently signed to the BMG modeling agency, where her portfolio is listed under women’s lifestyle models in Chicago. It’s likely that she lives primarily in the Windy City, where Taylor also films Chicago Fire.
Besides, as per LinkedIn, Ashley started working full-time as a sales and marketing specialist at El Bandido Yankee Tequila Company. And all along, she also continued her part-time job as a business development manager at Eagle Six Properties. For a year before joining the company in January 2019, Ashley played the role of a liaison between the company and its dealers at General Motors.
Ashley Cruger stands around 5′ 9′′ tall in height. Her profile on BMG Models also listed her bust, waist, and hips measurements respectively as 36, 27, and 37 (in inches). She wore dress of size 4-6 (US) and shoes of size 10 (US). Other physical features includes long and wavy-at-ends kind of brown hair and blue eyes.
Ashley Cruger’s father is Timothy Scott Cruger, aka Tim Cruger. Tim continued to live in Naperville, Illinois and reached the age of 59 in 2022. His mom and Ashley’s grandmother Lynn Cruger passed away sometime in 2020. She was left behind by her husband Christopher “Chris” Cruger Jr. when he died at the age of 80 in November 2015.
Ashley’s grandfather Christopher was enlisted in the Army; was sent to Korea from 1956 through 1959 after completing Ranger certification. He was honorably discharged in 1959 having achieved the rank of 1st Lieutenant.
As for siblings, Ashley has two sisters Lauren and Hope Cruger and brothers Jarred and Sam Cruger. Lauren who went to Neuqua Valley High School and Columbia College Chicago turned 28 in June 2021. Hope, on the other hand, started studying Biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2020. Jarred, likely a twin of Lauren, works in Security at Comedy Vault and Sam went to Waubonsie Valley High School.
Last but not the least, there is Lynn Seugling Cruger, Ashley’s beautiful mum, who back in the day studied at Green Mountain College and went to Passaic Valley Regional High School.
