Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker keep their romance extremely private, but they’ve been connected for over two years. ICYMI, In April 2020, rumors that Jenner was dating the Phoenix Suns basketball player hit the internet. For nearly a year, fans wondered if the pair were actually together. In February 2021, the two finally confirmed their relationship.
The couple reportedly took some time apart in June 2022, but by July, a source told Entertainment Tonight they’ve “never seen Kendall [in love] like this” before. "Despite all her sisters being moms and settling down, Kendall was never interested in that,” the source told the outlet.
The ET insider continued, “She's always been focused on her career and her friends, but lately her priorities have shifted, and she's made space for Devin." So, in honor of things getting more serious between Jenner and Booker, let’s look back at some of the couple’s cutest photos.
Though Jenner and Booker started dating in April 2020, their first date was actually in May 2018... kinda. Booker was dating Jordyn Woods at the time, and they reportedly doubled up with Jenner and then-boyfriend Ben Simmons.
Jenner has been known to keep her relationships pretty private. “A relationship is only meant to be between two people, and the second you make it the world’s business is when it starts messing with the two people mentally,” she told GQ Australia in May 2019. “Like once everyone is let in, you’re letting all these opinions into your relationships, and I don’t think that’s fair.”
The couple frequent sporting events together, and they were photographed at the US Open in September. Jenner definitely shares Booker’s love of sports. “I remember we used to go to all the Lakers games when I was really young so I’ve been a huge fan of the NBA for a really long time,” she said on the April 6 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. That only makes sense. She is “over the normal limit of athleticness,” remember?
At the tennis match, Jenner and Booker were spotted sharing a kiss. “They were all over each other at the tennis [match] — holding hands and kissing. They didn't care that everyone could see them,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. It appears that the usually-private Jenner took a page from big sis Kourtney Kardashian’s book of PDA.
I guess sports bring out the romance for them? In October 2021, Jenner and Booker celebrated the Phoenix Suns beating the Los Angeles Lakers with a victory kiss. Talk about a supportive GF! “I watch every game unless I have — last night I had a dinner, but all my friends and family know that I, like, sit with my phone wherever I am with the game on,” Jenner told Kimmel.
On May 20, Jenner and Booker were spotted getting dinner in Portofino, Italy ahead of Kourtney Kardashian’s wedding. A source told Us Weekly the wedding “really put things into perspective” for Jenner, potentially playing a role in the couple’s split.
Despite the challenges that come with busy lifestyles, it seems like Jenner and Booker are stronger than ever. "Their work, travel schedules and balancing their professional lives with their personal lives can get overwhelming at times," a source told Entertainment Tonight on Sept 13. “But their love for one another draws them back to each other."
