When Kaitlynn Carter and Brody Jenner made their relationship status official in 2014, Jenner had already been off The Hills for nearly half a decade. But now, in a full circle moment, Jenner, 35, and Carter, 30, are starring on the reboot, The Hills: New Beginnings, together as husband and wife.
"He was really honest about what he wanted, no messing around, and I found that really charming and refreshing," Carter told People of the couple's first meeting at a party in 2013. "Pretty soon after we started dating, I thought it could be for life." If you watched The Hills, that doesn't exactly sound like Brody, but then again pretty much everything about it was...less than real.
It's unclear how big of a storyline Kaitlynn will have on the reboot, but it should be interesting to see how the couple interacts with each other on TV. Here's everything you need to know about Carter and her relationship with Jenner before you watch The Hills: New Beginnings, which premieres on Monday, June 24.
Brody and Kaitlynn have been together for more than five years...
Kaitlynn posted a sweet Instagram celebrating her and Brody's anniversary last October:
"Happy 5 years to the most genuine, loving, fun, goofy, affectionate, kind and beautiful person I’ve ever had the fortune to have in my life," she captioned the post. "You’re more than my husband and more than my best friend. you’re EVERYTHING to me. I am so fortunate to be sitting here next to you 1,825 days from the day we met feeling like every day gets better and better and I love you even more and more. let’s just keep doing what we’re doing cause it’s working!!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! Now let’s go stuff ourselves at Melting Pot and pray our Halloween costumes still fit tomorrow 😛😛"
The picture below was taken a year after they started dating:
...And they had the most beautiful wedding on Nihi Sumba Island.
The couple wed in June 2018 in Indonesia. (Though, FWIW, Brody's kin, the Kardashian's weren't in attendance, and Kendall and Kylie apparently didn't even RSVP.)
They're open about their sex life.
Remember when Brody had a talk show called Sex with Brody? Yeah, well, he didn't exactly hold back about his and Kaitlynn's sex life when he did interviews then. "I'd have to say [the best sex I’ve ever had is] with my girlfriend, Kaitlynn," he told GQ in 2015. "We have the best sex together, but we also switch it up and do fun things as well. We're not opposed to having somebody else join in on our sexcapades."
Kaitlynn founded a blog called The Western Wild in 2014.
Since then, the New Hampshire native has rebranded the blog to "Hey, Miss Carter." "You’ll be able to keep up with all I find worth sharing about fashion, beauty and travel by visiting my homepage regularly," she wrote on the site. "There you’ll find all my latest editorial features! If you’d like to hear what I’m up to on the daily, just check out my digital diary. That will be filled with all my unfiltered, unorganized daily thoughts and happenings. As a writer by nature, I thought this would be the best way for you all to get to know me!"
Then she founded Foray Collective in 2015 with her friend, Tiana Haraguchi.
The e-commerce site focuses on showcasing emerging brands and their muses, like "bloggers, Instagramers, celebrities, and rule-breakers who think (and dress) outside the box, resulting in infectious personal style." Basically, it's a site where you can shop influencers and bloggers' styles. The Western Wild helped Carter get her contacts for Foray Collective.
"A big part of the way we get exposure for Foray Collective is through my connections in the blogging industry, so it’s critical that I stay involved in that world," Carter told Fashion Week Daily in 2015. "A lot of the brands on our site are brands I’ve worked with through my blog or friends that I’ve made at blogger events.
She didn't exactly picture herself doing reality television.
"For the longest time I’d always say no. I’ve had a lot of people approach me about that, related to my blog and being in the L.A. social scene," she said in the same Fashion Week Daily interview. "I’ve taken a meeting but it’s never felt right to me because I don’t want to be involved in a show that’s based on character drama. But I’d be interested in doing a reality show based on women’s careers in the blogging industry, and maybe the development of a startup like Foray that focuses on situational drama."
The Hills: New Beginnings premieres Monday, June 24 at 10 p.m. EST on MTV.
