Gina Kirschenheiter and Travis Mullen are getting serious. During an interview published on Friday, February 14, the Real Housewives of Orange County star revealed that she and her boyfriend have moved in together after six months of dating.
“It’s kind of major,” Gina, 35, dished to PEOPLE. “I know it’s nuts, but we’ve been together half a year. And when I think about that, I’m like, ‘That’s not a long time.’ But I honestly feel like I’ve known him forever. It seems so much longer.”
Gina confessed that she’s happy to be in a drama-free relationship after calling it quits with her ex-husband, Matt, 36, who she shares three children with. “We’re just so comfortable,” she explained. “It’s the weirdest thing. I’m not the type of girl who has to be with a guy or in a relationship. Even throughout drama with my ex, I was perfectly fine on my own and doing my own thing. But from the moment I started talking to Travis, I knew I had very sharp feelings for him.”
Like Gina, Travis also has three children, which includes two girls and a boy from a previous relationship. The couple’s new three-bedroom California home has become the ultimate spot for their blended families. “We’re a modern-day Brady Brunch,” Gina joked.
Although their new spot has three bedrooms, Gina explained how she and Travis are able to make it work with their children.
“They even all have their own space. It’s only three bedrooms but we have triple bunkbeds in both the kids’ rooms, so everyone has settled into their own corner,” Gina explained. “They’re just so happy together, all six of the kids, that it makes us feel so confident in this decision and reminds us that we’re doing the right thing.”
Despite enjoying her new romance, Gina confessed that she is in no rush to walk down the aisle again. She reasoned that she learned a lot from her failed marriage with Matt. The former couple filed for divorce in April 2018 after 11 years together.
