How Did They Meet? Do They Have Kids?
Phillips met Darrick, known for the series Southern at Heart and Guy’s Grocery Games, at a wedding and was introduced by a common friend. The couple shortly fell for each other and began dating.
According to the wedding details elaborated in the Food Network Magazine, the couple had organized a massive celebration for the big day. With a total of two hundred thirty-five people, the event was held outdoor with excellent decor and food.
It wasn’t until they got engaged that Phillips began thinking about her wedding. Both Phillips and Darrick shared the idea of how they wanted their special day to be like. Darrick came up with a plan to do an outdoor ceremony with a family-style single dining table and vintage china.
Going as per the plan, the couple tied the knot in June 2015 amongst their friends and family. However, the duo does not have any kids, but according to her tweet in 2018, Phillips might be considering adopting a child in the future.
Currently, the couple resides in their Kentucky home with their pet cats. Phillips loves her cat and often shares about her pets on social media. In 2018, her ‘gram post said that her cat, Florence, was pregnant, and the couple is raising the baby kittens.
Moreover, the happily wedded couple does not have a child yet. But Phillips' tweet of 2018 suggests that she might be looking for adopting a child. Replying to one of her followers on Twitter, Phillips curiously asked for advice on adoption.
Is there any advice you might give us from the child's point of view? We've talked with a lot of adoptive parents but not as many adults that were adopted. — damaris phillips (@ChefDPhillips) March 18, 2018
