Shedding light on their relationship, Skenes once said: “It’s nice to be able to have this conversation. She understands,” according to People.
He added: “I wish she could come to a baseball game and just enjoy it. It annoys me. I have no control over it. Neither does she, really. I’m sure she’ll be fine better as I level up, but it’s something I want for her.”
