American TV personality Kristin Cavallari turned heads after she shared a selfie with her new beau, TikTok star Mark Estes while the two were vacationing in Cabo, Mexico together. 

While some fans were happy for the beaming new couple, others expressed concern over Kristin Cavallari and Mark Estes’ 13-year age difference. 

Some people even claimed that Cavallari should be “embarrassed” for pursuing someone over a decade younger than her, believing it would have been more appropriate for her to date someone closer to her age. 

However, by focusing so heavily on age, many people are missing some of the most crucial aspects needed for a healthy relationship: trust, happiness, loyalty, and respect.

Kristin Cavallari should not be embarrassed about her relationship with a 24-year-old. Instead, we should be embarrassed for our reactions. 

Cavallari first rose to fame in 2004 starring on the MTV reality series, “Laguna Beach.” Today, she is the founder of the lifestyle brand “Uncommon James,” a New York Times best-selling author, and a mother of three. 

After a divorce from her ex-husband, Jay Cutler, in 2022, Cavallari opened up about the possibility of finding love again. 

“It’s really not important to me right now. It’s just not with where I’m at in my life,” she told E! News in June 2023. “I’ve had a lot of fun in the last few years, just really focusing on my friends and getting to hang out with my friends again, because I didn’t get to do that for a long time.” 

So when fans noticed that Cavalleri had posted a photo to Instagram alongside 24-year-old Mark Estes, captioning it “He makes me happy,” they were stunned, to say the least. 

Apart from being a member of the famous TikTok group, “Montana Boyz,” Estes was also a college football player and resides in both Nashville, where Cavallari currently lives, and Montana.
