Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet have been romantically linked since April of this year, but supposedly spending this holiday season together has deepened their connection. A source speaking with US Weekly states that the couple’s Christmas holiday has changed things between them, especially as Chalamet is introduced to her family.
“Things are going great between Kylie and Timothée,” the insider said, adding that the duo has been “spending more time together since they both have some free time during the holiday season.”
They continued, “Kylie appreciates how well he gets along with her family because their approval means everything,” and that Chalamet is “always making her smile and they have a very special connection.”
Some of Jenner’s family met Chalamet months ago, and a source said then, “They really like him and think he’s different from anybody Kylie has dated in the past…He has a great sense of humor, and he makes her smile which is the most important thing to them. They love seeing how happy she is and absolutely approve of them dating.”
Jenner has been supportive of Chalamet this season, too, as his film Wonka premiered. She attended the screening of the movie in London with her mom, Kris Jenner, as well as the Saturday Night Live after-party for his episode he hosted to promote the film.
“She’s one of his biggest supporters and was so glad she and Kris were able to be there,” the source told Us of the outing.
He was then allegedly spotted at the Kardashian and Jenner’s Christmas Eve party in the background of a photo posted by Travis Barker’s son, Landon, on Snapchat. Landon shared a picture of his dad, and over his shoulder it appears as though Chalamet is leaning over Jenner in conversation—however, it has not been confirmed that it was the actor.
