Mark Estes lives in Montana and Nashville.

Cavallari was previously married to Jay Cutler — with whom she shares kids Camden, Jaxon and Saylor — before calling it quits in 2020. The blonde beauty has not had a serious public relationship until Estes came along.

According to a source, Estes and Cavallari first communicated online before they connected face to face.

“They’ve been dating longer than people think and have kept it very private. They met on social media,” the insider spilled. “They’re serious enough now that they were ready to go public. They’re really happy together. He’s been so great to her and is just a really nice guy.”

The reality TV star’s hunk lives in both Montana and Nashville, Tenn., per his Instagram bio, which reads, “Life is amazin, it is what it should be | Montana | Nashville 📍.”

Despite sparking a romance with the southern resident, Cavallari once noted she was over seeing any guys in Tennessee.

"I've decided I'm done dating in Nashville," she told Entertainment Tonight in September 2023, adding she can “guarantee” her next partner would not be a country music star.
