The supermodel, 25, who’s kept her romance under the radar since hooking up with the NBA star last year, recently posted some cozy snaps showing the loved-up duo on their sun-soaked Italian getaway on Instagram, “which was a rare move for her,” a friend points out. “But she wants people to know she’s serious about this guy.”
Indeed, the couple — who was spotted out and about in New York City on September 10 — could be making some major moves in their relationship any day now, the pal predicts. “Kendall will be ditching L.A. to spend most of her time in Arizona as Devin gears up for the basketball season, which is a huge deal,” explains the friend.
Getting some distance from the Kardashian-Jenner clan will also be a good thing “since Devin does get a bit spooked by the insane family circus,” adds the pal. “Kendall sees her future with Devin and wants to protect him. She’s very much in love.”
While the couple first linked up last April, they went Instagram official ten months later on Valentine's Day. At the time, the KUWTK alum shared a loved-up snap of herself lying on the kitchen counter with the NBA finals champ over her as the two shared a laugh.
The 24-year-old also debuted their relationship via his respective Instagram account, posting a photo of Jenner playing with her dog in the backyard.
The private couple celebrated their one-year anniversary in June by sharing intimate photos of the two — an unusual move by Jenner given she often keeps her high-profile romances out of the public eye. (She was previously linked to Harry Styles and NBA player Ben Simmons.)
Despite offering a glimpse of their romance to the public, Jenner and Booker tend to keep much of their relationship on the down-low. Nonetheless, the brunette beauty proudly showed her support for her man during his NBA finals debut in July with the Phoenix Suns. "I'm not emotional, you are," Jenner wrote via her Instagram Story alongside a video from inside the arena.
Shortly after his NBA finals win, Booker posted a rare photo of his girlfriend wearing his Olympic gold medal as she laid out on a boat. It's safe to say the couple is winning.
