After what felt like a thousand years of speculation and a million rumours, Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker finally went Instagram official on Valentine's Day 2021, but they'd actually already been together for almost a year by that point. Not that you would know it. The adorable couple are typically quite private, but over the last year they've treated us to a few insights into their relationship. Here's everything we know, and Kendall and Devin's relationship timeline. Welcome to your first and only comprehensive 'Kevin' history lesson, starting with the most recent update.
22nd June 2020: Just days after Kendall spoke publicly about their relationship for the first time, a report claims the pair are actually basically living together. Cute!
Us Weekly’s source claimed, “He’s practically moved in with her. They really respect each other’s careers and give each other space to focus on her modeling or his basketball career.
That’s probably what makes their relationship work so well is that they have that work-life balance.” Sounds like things are getting serious!
April 2020: Rumours begin swirling surrounding Kendall and NBA player Devin Booker after the pair were spotted on a road trip together (TMZ even published pictures). But according to a source close to the pair, Kendall and Devin were actually just friends at this point and were hanging out in the same friendship group.
"Kendall and friends have a small social circle amongst the group, who have been following the same social distancing and physical distancing guidelines. Devin is a friend and is part of the small group," the source said, adding that they had been in the same circle since about 2018.
This is when people really started to think something was going on with these two, and we'd later find out that June 2020 is the month Kevin officially became a thing. Rumours about the two increased after they were seen getting into the same car together after dinner at celebrity hotspot Nobu.
Fans felt liked they'd really cracked onto these two by July, when they shared separate Instagram posts of what appeared to be the same holiday.
Kendall posted pictures of a road-trip showing her visiting some rock formations, and explained in the caption that the pictures were taken a "few weeks ago." Observant followers were quick to spot that Devin had had posted pictures four days beforehand of him visiting Slide Rock State Park in Arizona, which looks interestingly like the rocks in the background of Kendall's post.
August 2020: We now know that Kendall and Devin had been together two months by this point. But back in August 2020, all we knew was that these two were flirting up a storm on Instagram.
It all started when Kendall posted a very sultry selfie to Instagram showing her flawless make-up and those cheekbones, and captioned the image with a strawberry emoji. In and amongst the many comments was one from Kendall's rumoured new boyfriend, Devin Booker.
The comment read, "I like strawberries," and Kendall was quick to follow up with a response of not just one but four strawberry emojis. Frankly the heat coming off this exchange could fry an egg.
October 2020: Okay, so people really have these two figured out now. After pictures emerged from Kim's controversial 40th birthday holiday, in and amongst all the backlash about the (very out of touch) trip, fans spotted something going on in the background of one of Scott's Instagram posts. Specifically, Kendall and Devin.
February 2021: The notoriously private couple confirm their relationship with a series of pictures on Instagram. This is pretty big for fans, since it's the first time these two have shared any pictures of each other on social media and not only are there several of them, but they're cute.
April 2021: Throughout April Kendall and Devin make their first public appearances together, and it ends up being a pretty big deal since the relationship has been - understandably - under wraps from the public over the past year.
June 13th 2021: Kendall and Devin celebrate their one year anniversary and post some adorable pictures of each other on Instagram. Along with a very sweet picture of the pair cuddling Kendall also shared a picture of Devin reclining on a wall. Devin also shared a series of pictures of Kendall, which looked to be chronicling their past year together. The first photo was a scenic picture of restaurant at sunset captioned, "1", a second picture of the pair swimming together was captioned "52" and a final snap of Kendall came with the caption "365."
June 21st 2021: Kendall speaks publicly about Devin for the first time, revealing he's her boyfriend. After KUWTK Reunion host Andy Cohen asked Kendall if she only dated basketball players (the model was also linked to Ben Simmons), she replied, "No, I actually don't only date basketball players, if anyone's ever done their research."
When asked about Devin specifically, she replied, "He's my boyfriend." Kendall, 25, was then asked why she's so private about her relationships. "Kylie and I have had the opportunity to watch our older sisters go through marriages and relationships and breakups and all these things, and do them pretty publicly," she explained.
