Hot couple summer!
It has been a hot minute, or two, since one of our kind, a surfer, officially dated a Hollywood celebrity and especially an honest-to-goodness Hollywood celebrity hailing from the most important, current, celebrity family but here we are, famous-adjacent. Page Six is reporting that Ultimate Surfer, and current world number twenty-two, Tia Blanco is officially dating Brody Jenner.
You, of course, may remember Jenner from his 2005 reality program The Princes of Malibu in which he, and his brother Brandon, lived the very good life in their mother Linda Thompson’s husband’s spacious home, much to his chagrin, but are more likely to recognize the classically handsome 38-year-old as half-brother of Kendall and Kylie Jenner who are, in turn, half-sisters to Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian.
Brody, Brandon, Kendall and Kylie share Caitlyn Jenner as a father.
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney share the late Robert Kardashian who successfully defended O.J. Simpson against his 1995 double murder charge.
Brody and Tia were, anyhow, photographed yesterday afternoon outside Erewhon Market in Calabasas, California just inland from the aforementioned Malibu.
According to the respected gossip page, the two met while Jenner was on family vacation in Hawaii and have been in a committed, amorous relationship since the middle of April, declaring:
The pair reportedly surfed together and had “an instant connection” over their “shared love for the ocean,” the source said, adding that it is “already a real relationship.”
It appears the Puerto Rican-born surfer still spends most of her time in Hawaii, so it has been a “long-distance relationship” so far, according to the report.
Jenner’s mom, Linda Thompson, posted about their “long awaited family vacation” to Hawaii on Instagram on April 11. She shared photos of Brody and his brother, Brandon Jenner, along with other family members.
Thompson, it goes on to say, regularly comments on Blanco’s Instagram page.
Blanco, you might recall, won last year’s The Ultimate Surfer competition guaranteeing her a certain amount of wildcards into World Surf League Championship Tour events. She recently became defeated by Carissa Moore and Stephanie Gilmore in the first round of the MEO Pro Portugal then became defeated by Tyler Wright and India Robinson in the elimination round.
Exciting days ahead as this spring love blooms.
