Kendall Jenner publicly acknowledged her relationship with NBA player Devin Booker for the first time on Valentine’s Day, 2021.
The model shared a photograph of herself with her beau, which marked a rare move for Jenner who has historically kept her romantic life – especially with high-profile former partners like Harry Styles – largely out of the public eye (including on Keeping up with the Kardashians), which is in contrast to her famous sisters who tend to be open books when it comes to a lot of their relationships.
Jenner has been rumoured to have been in a relationship with Booker for almost a year. Booker, 24, is a professional basketball player who currently is signed to the Phoenix Suns.
