Everyone understands Brandon Jenner's role on Keeping Up With The Kardashians: He's Bruce's son who reluctantly participates in filming on occasion. Doye! But what about Brandon's wife, Leah? Who is Leah Jenner, really? Always lurking just out of frame on KUWTK, she pops up periodically to fool you into thinking that a long-lost blonde Kardashian has suddenly been hired. Then you remember, "Right. It's just Leah! She's always around..." Then just as quickly as she emerged, she disappears again like a reality TV mirage. 

Because inquiring minds want to know, here's your guide to this reality TV wallflower. I've found that there's far more to this famous family in-law than her caption on the show reveals. In addition to being the Kardashian family enigma, Leah Felder-Jenner is a musician, a cat lover, and a descendant of rock royalty. 

Her dad is classic rock royalty

Leah Jenner, née Leah Felder, is one of Eagles lead guitarist Don Felder’s four children. The famed musician co-wrote the classic rock band’s celebrated hit “Hotel California” and is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Basically, baby girl’s got music in her veins.

She & Brandon go way back

It’s like a SoCal fairy tale. These kids are ride or die buddies who grew up in Malibu, California, and fell in love after years of pining. On an episode of Brody Jenner’s podcast, Leah discussed how she and Brandon met, saying that they’ve known each other since she was 11 and he was 13. ”We started playing [music] in high school together. I had a boyfriend, he had a girlfriend. And then when I was single one day, he was single one day and he came up to me and he’s like, ‘I’ve been in love with you since you were 11 years old.’” Dawww.

Brody was her middle school beau

As for Leah’s previous boyfriends, one of them was freakin’ Brody. Actually, Brody was the very reason Brandon and Leah met, because they were awkward-stage significant others. Mind you, when this happened, the entire cast of characters was in junior high. “So he was my boyfriend in the fifth grade, Brody was. We never kissed.” No word on whether or not they did the middle school slow dance, though.

She & Brandon have a band

In addition to being an adorably enamored couple, Brandon and Leah are a musical duo. Following in the footsteps of her musical lineage, Leah sings vocals while Brandon plays guitar. You may recognize the indie pop musical stylings of Brandon & Leah from Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, as their song “Showstopper” was used as the theme.

She got hitched in Hawaii

Back in 2012, the pair got married at the St. Regis in Hawaii with 36 friends and loved ones in attendance. According to People, Kendall and Kylie Jenner were bridesmaids but the rest of the Kardashian sisters couldn’t make it
