Kristin Cavallari’s Inner Circle Can See Her ‘Genuine Connection’ With New Man Mark Estes: Source (Exclusive)

Kristin Cavallari’s inner circle is cosigning her relationship with Mark Estes, despite their age difference.

“After seeing them together, they realize Kristin and Mark have a genuine connection, and they see how happy he makes her,” a source exclusively reveals of Cavallari’s inner circle in the new issue of Us Weekly.

The former Laguna Beach star, 37, made headlines on February 27 when debuting her romance with the 24-year-old Estes. “He makes me happy 🤍,” Cavallari wrote on Instagram at the time.

Fans quickly flooded the comments section with quips regarding their age difference. (Estes is 13 years Cavallari’s junior.)

“She doesn’t care what people think when it comes to his age,” a second source tells Us, noting that Cavallari and Estes have been together “for a while.”

Cavallari proved that to be true when she poked fun at the chatter via TikTok on Saturday, March 2. “When they’re all up in arms that I’m dating a 24 year old. Andddd?” she wrote on the app.

Fans first speculated that Cavallari and Estes were dating in late February after they were photographed in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, according to a photo obtained by TMZ at the time. She was in Mexico for a photo shoot to promote her jewelry brand Uncommon James’ summer collection. It appeared that Cavallari had taken Estes along as her plus one.

While she has yet to share any details about their relationship, other than a few photos and some TikTok videos, Cavallari teased her plans to spill the tea about their relationship during a future episode of the “Let’s Be Honest” podcast.
