It wasn't exactly surprising news
after Jenner and the NBA
player shared cuddly one-year anniversary photos
of each other on social media earlier this month, as well as a cuddly Valentine's Day photo of themselves.
Jenner, the second youngest member of the KarJenner family, explained that she kept the relationship hidden from her TV audience because she had seen the consequences of not being discreet.
She explained that keeping boyfriends out of the reality show has “worked out better for me.”
“No offense to my older sisters at all,” Jenner said, “but I think Kylie and I specifically have had the opportunity to watch
our older sisters go through marriages, relationships, and breakups, and do them pretty publicly, and it was personal preference” to keep things private “from a really young age.”
“To be honest, I think it makes my life a lot easier and our relationship a lot better... I just feel like it’s a private matter that no one else should judge
Jenner also admitted to having a "dating
type," but it isn't always NBA players.
“No, if anyone has done their research
, I don’t actually only date basketball
players,” she joked, adding, “I’m not ashamed that I have a type, and I’m also a genuine basketball fan.”
, the executive producer of “KUWTK,” revealed last week that Jenner had a “rule” about relationships on the reality show.
“She felt like she had to be with someone for at least a year before she let them be a part of the show — and in the show — because she doesn’t always know what people
’s intentions are,” Farnaz explained to Bravo TV’s “The Daily Dish” podcast
. “So that’s why we kind of kept her personal life out of it, just because she had a rule.”
