Momma couldn't be more proud. Kyle is a showman on the lanes, but he's also my kid with a huge heart. Thank you for making my day. Love you bunches

"I enjoy putting on a show for him and being able to bring home the trophies together, that is a pretty awesome feeling."
Kyle said to Flobowling while talking about his father, Guppy Troup after his 2021 PBA Playoffs win.
After his impressive victory, the player handed the WWE belt, which he won at the game, to his father, who was more than thrilled to flex it to the cheering audience.

No wonder where Kyle got his inspiration from, becoming one of the greatest in bowling.
Further talking about his father, he mentioned how his father's presence gave him comfort.
While Kyle is at the top of his game, his fans are pretty curious about his personal life, desperately looking for an answer if he is married.

Kyle, describing himself as playful, spontaneous, and affectionate, elaborated on how his first date would be like saying,
If I have to describe a perfect date, I would say, probably start out...like a Dave and Buster's. I love darts, so maybe find a dartboard somewhere. You know a woman's gotta love her food because I definitely love mine, so maybe like a home-cooked pasta or you know go out for a nice dinner.
As he sends out his appeal for a suitable partner, the universe might be working to send his pair on his way. But, until he finds the one he is looking for, his career remains his primary focus.
