Since her split from Kris Jenner and some of the Kardashian family, Caitlyn Jenner has kept largely under the radar with romantic attachments, remaining coy about her relationship status. This week, however, speculation was reignited for the Olympian, as she and her rumored girlfriend Sophia Hutchins coupled up to attend the 2019 ESPYs on Thursday night.
According to PopCulture.com, Jenner, 69, and Hutchins, 23, hit the red carpet in Los Angeles for the awards show, one of the most prestigious in sports, hinting at a potential relationship--though not confirming anything specifically. Previously, Jenner has dodged questions of whether or not she and Hutchins are dating, though she told Variety last summer that they are “inseparable."
“We are not going to get into that,” Jenner said, when asked during the interview her relationship with Hutchins. “But we are very close. We do a lot of things together. We’re kind of inseparable. We’re the best of friends.”
Per Bravo, however, Hutchins provided an additional clue in an Instagram post earlier this year, when she described Jenner as her “amazing loving partner.” While the duo have used the term “partner” in the past, this comment seemed markedly more romantic than other occasions, when it was used in a more ambiguous or platonic fashion. In May, Jenner's former stepdaughter Khloé Kardashian seemingly confirmed the relationship, though it is unclear whether or not she was simply making an assumption.

I have chosen to be very intentional about the people I surround myself with. Surround yourself with those that inspire, those that are beautiful, those that are genuine, those that empower you, and those that choose love. I am so lucky to have the friends, team, and all of the love and support I have. I cannot wait to share this year with all of these people and so many more that wouldn’t fit in this collage! Thanks for making my bday so special!
In any case, we’re glad to see that Caitlyn Jenner is still living her life following her split from Kris Jenner--we’re sure things aren’t easy for her, but it’s great that she seems happy.
