Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker’s slam-dunk romance is going strong.

In June 2021, the model and the Phoenix Suns guard marked a major relationship milestone: their one-year dating anniversary.

From Instagram flirting to cozy date nights, here’s a look at Jenner and Booker’s complete relationship timeline.

In April 2020, reports surfaced that Jenner had been spending time with Booker in Arizona. A source close to the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” alum later shot down romance rumors, telling TMZ they’re just friends.

“Kendall and friends have a small social circle amongst the group, who have been following the same social distancing and physical distancing guidelines [amid the COVID-19 pandemic]. Devin is a friend and is part of the small group,” the insider said at the time.

That same month, Jenner lit up Twitter by responding to a fan comment about the potential coupling, tweeting that her haters “act like i’m not in fully control of where i throw this cooch.”

Jenner has dated several NBA players over the years, including Utah Jazz point guard Jordan Clarkson and Brooklyn Nets power forward Blake Griffin. She split from Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons in 2019.

Social media speculation

Four months after Booker and Jenner were initially linked, their social media activity gained traction.

In August 2020, Jenner posted an Instagram video of herself that she captioned with a strawberry emoji. Booker then replied to the sexy clip, “I like strawberries.”

Weeks later, the rumored couple were photographed outside Nobu in Malibu.

For Valentine’s Day in 2021, Jenner and Booker made their relationship Instagram-official. The reality star posted a photo of herself cuddling with Booker, captioning it with a white heart emoji.

Suns supporter

During the 2021 NBA season, Jenner showed her support for Booker in more ways than one. In addition to rocking an oversized Suns T-shirt in a sultry Instagram snap, she also caught the two-time NBA All-Star in action.

In February 2021, Jenner made a cameo in a viral fan photo taken at a Suns game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Booker, who signed a five-year, $158 million deal with the Suns in 2018, helped lead Phoenix to the Western Conference Finals in the NBA Playoffs in June 2021.

That same month, Jenner participated in the “KUWTK” reunion special and dazzled in a sparkling metallic skirt from Tom Ford’s spring 2013 collection.

Jenner, who had been part of “KUWTK” since its inception in 2007, never featured her boyfriends on the show, which has since wrapped its 20th and final season.

“Kendall’s always had this rule — she just felt like she had to be with someone for at least a year before she lets them be a part of the show, because she doesn’t always know what people’s intentions are,” executive producer Farnaz Farjam told Bravo’s “The Daily Dish” podcast in June 2021.

That said, Jenner had no problem calling Booker her “boyfriend” for the first time during the final part of the two-episode reunion special.

“I’m not ashamed that I have a type, and I’m also a genuine basketball fan,” she told host Andy Cohen after being asked about their romance.
