Braunwyn shared a photo on her Instagram Story at the time, snuggled up to Kris on a hike, which she captioned with a rainbow flag and two pink hearts.

The mother of seven, who has been married to Sean Burke since 2000, publicly came out the same day. “I’m still getting used to it … I knew I was attracted to women,” she told the outlet. “For me to be living completely authentically and say, ‘I’m a lesbian. That was who I have always been.’”

She continued: “I’ve always known it. But it took me personally 42 years to be comfortable enough in my own skin to say that.”

Sean, who has met Kris, showed his support for his wife of 20 years via his Instagram Story, writing, “I love you. I’m proud of you. And I support you. Always.”

Braunwyn, who shares Bella, 20, Rowan, 18, Jacob, 15, twins Caden and Curren, 7, Koa, 5, and Hazel, 2, with Sean later revealed that the couple plan to stay married despite her coming out.

“He’s my best friend and family,” the Bravo personality replied on December 9. “We know it might be impossible, but we’re going to try and make this ‘open’ marriage work.”
