Kaitlynn Carter, a newcomer to The Hills: New Beginnings reality series, has announced that she is expecting her first child. Kaitlynn will be entering this exciting journey with her boyfriend, fashion designer Kristopher Brock.

Kaitlynn’s announcement photo showed her and Kristopher’s silhouettes against a rock wall, presumably at the Esperanza Resort in Mexico. The reality star’s baby bump shadow is in full view – such a fun way to share the news! While this baby is Kaitlynn’s first, Kristopher has some experience in parenting! He shares a son named Charles Wright, who was born in December 2014, with his ex-wife Laura Vassar.

Kaitlynn originally joined The Hills revival series as Brody Jenner’s partner. Brody was an original cast member of the MTV reality show. During the first season of the show, Kaitlynn had expressed wanting to start a family with Brody, but it appeared the two weren’t on the same page. The couple split amicably in August 2019, one year after their wedding in Indonesia, but it turned out their nuptials were not legally binding. After separating, Kaitlynn briefly dated singer Miley Cyrus, who was also recently separated from her husband Liam Hemsworth. Kaitlynn and Kristopher began dating less than a year later in May of 2020.

Congratulations to Kaitlynn and Kristopher on this exciting news! We wish them all the best as they prepare to embark on the journey of parenthood together.
