In 2019, Kyle Chrisley opened up about the suicide attempt that had occurred earlier in the year on an episode of his father’s podcast, “Chrisley Confessions.”
Last December, Chrisley shared more details of the effort on Instagram, writing: “For years I struggled with self-worth. I had no sense of self, never felt good enough.”
“Today I’m happier than I’ve been in my entire life,” Chrisley said. “I know my worth. I belong. I want. I need. I love. And so do you.”
Chrisley married his wife Ashley Nelson in 2019. He has a daughter, Chloe, from a previous marriage.
