The pregnancy news comes months after Jenner and Blanco confirmed their relationship on social media. In June 2022, Jenner posted a photo with Blanco on his Instagram Story and a video set to Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely" showing himself and Blanco riding bikes on a winding road.

The pair first sparked dating rumors in April 2022 when they shared similar photos of a waterfall in Hawaii on social media. In mid-May, Jenner and Blanco were photographed together at an Erewhon Market in California, too.

The following November, Blanco spoke to E! News about the couple's decision to keep their romance under wraps at the time.

"We kept our relationship pretty private at the beginning," she told the outlet. "But we're both just so in love and it just happened naturally to share the fun things that we do and this exciting time in our life together."
