Are they or aren’t they? Caitlyn Jenner, 68, discussed her relationship with Sophia Hutchins, 22, months after sparking romance rumors. The reality star spoke about their bond to Variety for their Trans Hollywood Issue on Aug. 7, and claimed they are not a couple.
When asked about her status with model Sophia, Caitlyn responded: “We are not going to get into that.” However, she did briefly open up about their connection. “But we are very close. We do a lot of things together. We’re kind of inseparable,” the former Olympian explained. “We’re the best of friends.” The two were all smiles while attending the 2018 ESPYs together a few weeks ago, so they clearly do enjoy each other’s company.
Sophia was present during Caitlyn’s interview and she discussed her role as the executive director of the Caitlyn Jenner Foundation, and their mission to advance transgender rights. “Coming from a reality show, where every detail of your life is documented, to not seeking any press is kind of a big change,” Sophia explained. “Caitlyn is not working on these issues for press attention. She’s doing it because she genuinely wants to help the community.”
Fans have been curious about the nature of Caitlyn’s relationship with Sophia, especially after the 22-year-old had an interesting response to someone’s question. While trying out Instagram’s new “Ask Me Anything” feature on July 12, the Pepperdine University 2018 graduate revealed she’s dating someone, writing: “Oh yes!” with a heart-eyes emoji. However, when she was asked if Cait was her girlfriend, she responded with an eye-roll. Regardless of whether they are together or not, fans are just glad they both support each other’s dreams.
