Brody Jenner and Tia Blanco, his girlfriend, are expecting their first child. “To start off this new year, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of our friends, family, and followers health, happiness & an abundance of love,” Jenner, 39, and the pro surfer, 25, captioned a joint Instagram video on Sunday, January 1, of Blanco, getting a sonogram. “We truly appreciate & love you all. We are excited to share with you the blessing of a new life in the new year.”
They added: “Our little angel is on their way 💙 Happy new year!” In the video, the Hills alum recorded his girlfriend’s ultrasound visit and marveled at the baby’s features. “Honey, look at that little heart,” Jenner is heard saying in the video. “What?!?”
Caitlyn Jenner and Linda Thompson, who married between 1981 and 1986, are the parents of the Prince of Malibu alum. “So happy that you are sharing this news so I can tell everybody I meet on the street now,” Thompson, 72, commented on her son’s post. “Lol I have been keeping this secret, but it’s been so hard! We are so happy! Love you both so much… Love all three of you so much!”
According to US Magazine reports, Thompson is a happy grandma to three children. Brandon Jenner, the former couple’s eldest son, has an eight-year-old daughter Eva with ex-wife Leah James and twin kids Sam and Bo, all two, with girlfriend Cayley Stoker. Brody and the aspiring artist’s child will be Thompson’s fourth grandchild and Caitlyn’s twenty-first.
(The other children of the I Am Cait alum, Cassandra Jenner, Burt Jenner, and Kylie Jenner, as well as previous stepchildren Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian, are already parents to several children.)
In April 2022, the reality TV star and the Puerto Rican native initially started relationship rumors. They made their relationship public on Instagram in May, posting a photo of themselves cuddling with Brody’s dog. Brody was married to Kaitlynn Carter between 2018 and 2019, prior to his affair with the Ultimate Surfer alum. Carter, 34, has now married Kristopher Brock and will have a son Rowan in September 2021.
“It’s just a little soon, but I don’t know. What’s done is done. I just hope that she’s making the right decision,” he said in an August 2021 episode of The Hills: New Beginnings after the New Hampshire native confirmed her pregnancy. “Ultimately, I just want to see her happy. If I don’t think she’s making the right choice, I’ll definitely let her know that. … I think it’s a little quick that she’s pregnant already. That was quick. You never know.” Carter and Brock announced in October 2022 that they are expecting baby No. 2, his third.
