When it comes to their 13-year age gap, a second insider insisted, "He’s not your typical 24-year-old. She’s having a great time and is living her best life with him."

After splitting from Cutler, 40, in 2020, Cavallari had been romantically linked to comedian Jeff Dye and musician Chase Rice.

Prior to going public with Estes, the jewelry designer admitted it isn't so easy for her to find the right guy.

"I’ll go on a first date with someone and sit there thinking, 'Could you be a stepfather to my children?' And then I’m like, 'No, you suck.' The good thing is I’m not going to waste my time. I have really high standards now because of my kids," she explained in an interview.
