Brody Jenner's dating life was a main storyline during the original run of The Hills. Life has majorly changed for the former bachelor. The reality TV veteran is a married man. Now, Brody Jenner and his wife Kaitlynn Carter Jenner are sharing their relationship ups and downs on The Hills: New Beginnings, but there are some gaps in time that need to be filled in for the longtime fans of the show. The two of them got together in between the original show and the reboot; therefore, a relationship timeline is necessary for the fans who want to be in the loop.
Before Kaitlynn was in the picture, The Hills viewers got to know Brody when he was a "love interest" of Lauren Conrad's, who was the narrator of the original series. However, their romance was not what it seemed like on the show.
In a 2015 interview originally published by Yahoo Style, Brody admitted the truth about his relationship with Lauren. He admitted, "We were just friends. We’d film a scene of us kissing or being in this lovey-dovey scene, and then right after it would be like, ‘Cut,’ and we’d be like, ‘Great to see you,’ and we’d go our separate ways."
Viewers saw Brody date and "date" a few women throughout Seasons 2-6 of The Hills, but now fans are seeing the real life romance (and drama) with his wife Kaitlynn play out on the reboot. The rest is still unwritten, but there is a lot to catch up on when it comes to their relationship past.
Let's take a stroll down memory lane to see how Brody went from the single life to wifing up a social media Instagrammer.
