After watching Kristen Doute’s relationship trials, tribulations and trysts play out during the last four seasons of Vanderpump Rules, it seems that the former SUR waitress has called it quits with her serial-dating ways and found someone (outside the Bravo family) worth holding onto.
Brian Carter – or Carter as Kristen calls him – made his brief debut on the latest episode of VPR as the new couple was seen attending a party at SUR and engaging in some PDA, all while Kristen’s exes, Tom Sandoval and James Kennedy, looked on.
While Kristen and Carter’s relationship may seem to have come out of nowhere, it actually began while Kristen was in the midst of her post-James, single and carefree phase. The two began dating last summer after meeting on the dating app Bumble, and according to Kristen’s Instagram, things are getting pretty serious.
The reality star posted the photo above during a recent group trip to Lake Tahoe, along with a caption referencing “offspring” that had some commenters asking if the couple was expecting. While Kristen has not elaborated on the offspring comment, she gave another nod to her new man today, tweeting a photo of the two of them kissing and describing it as her favorite of life’s many “plot twists” last summer:

Meanwhile, Carter has also been open about his feelings for Kristen on social media. “You can’t blame gravity for falling in love,” Carter wrote yesterday on Instagram. “I blame our awesomeness and drinking. Also @bumbleapp for introducing us. Happy birthday babe! Love you!”
And then there was this basket of flowers and letter from Carter on Wednesday:
