Six months into the relationship, Real Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter has moved in with her boyfriend, Travis Mullen. Kirschenheiter says that the move is “kind of major” and she knows that it doesn’t seem like enough time, but she feels like she has known Mullen forever.
“We’re just so comfortable,” Kirschenheiter told People magazine. “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.”
The 35-year-old added that Mullen is an adorable, kind-hearted human with a good heart. Kirschenheiter says that her boyfriend loves her for her, and in spite of her imperfections, craziness, and past.
Kirschenheiter explained that the biggest shift for her was being in a relationship with someone who cares about what’s going on in her everyday life, even the boring stuff. She loves that Mullen genuinely cares what’s going on with her, and he listens. If something is important to her, it’s important to Mullen, and they have a respectful bond.
Kirschenheiter purchased a three-bedroom home for the couple to move into along with her kids – Nicholas, 7, Sienna, 5, and Luca, 3, – who she shares with her ex-husband, Matt. And, Mullen is moving in with his three kids – two girls and a boy, ages 8, 6, and 3.
The RHOC star joked that they are a “modern day Brady Bunch.” And, they are just one maid away from filling the center square.
Kirschenheiter says that all of the kids get along and their personalities complement each other well. She added that there are a few days where they don’t have each other and the kids genuinely miss one another, but they are on the same schedule for every other weekend.
She says that they call the two little boys “Double Trouble,” and they are already like brothers. And, her daughter Sienna is loving it because she now has sisters.
Gina Kirschenheiter says that it’s been nice to see how close her and Travis Mullen’s kids are and how much they love each other. Even though they only have three bedrooms, each kid has their own space. And, they have triple bunk beds in both kids’ rooms.
She says that the kids being so happy together has made them feel confident in their decision to move in together, and it reminds them that they are doing the right thing. However, the couple does not have plans to get married anytime soon.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County will return to Bravo later this year.
