Did you know that 68-year-old Caitlyn Jenner is dating a 21-year-old college student?

Caitlyn Jenner and Sofia Hutchins leave a dinner date at Kristy's Malibu

We’ve barely discussed Caitlyn Jenner in the past year. There are a few reasons why: for one, she actually has been more low-key lately, and less prone to giving dumb interviews about her politics or her makeup. Also, Caitlyn is genuinely a massive jackass and I feel like people just got tired of her and they stopped paying attention to her.

So what has Caitlyn been up to while we were occupied with other things? Well, it seems like Cait has a girlfriend. And that girlfriend – who you can see in these photos – is all of 21 years old. Caitlyn is 68 years old. This alleged girlfriend is named Sophia Hutchins, and as it turns out, they’ve been low-key dating for months. Sophia is not “new.” Cait and Sophia have been orbiting each other for the better part of a year, and they first attended an event together in April of this year. There were rumors a few months ago that Cait and Sophia are engaged, but I don’t know. Apparently, the Jenner family – meaning Caitlyn’s adult children – are not very happy about Sophia, who happens to be Kendall’s age. Could it be that Sophia is the reason why Caitlyn didn’t go to Brody Jenner’s wedding back in May? Hmm…

As for Sophia, she’s already transitioned and she’s apparently a student at Pepperdine. That’s right, 68-year-old Caitlyn Jenner is dating a college student. I couldn’t care less about any of the other stuff, it’s just the age difference that is really upsetting me. Caitlyn has no business with someone so young. And… no wonder Cait’s kids have completely cut her off. It makes a lot of sense now.

    I really wish I could unsee this picture of them together. No, just no.

  2. Beth says:

    Sophia is probably just thirsty for attention and money, because there is nothing lovable about Caitlyn. Those sunglasses are horrid

    • minx says:

      Caitlin looks horrible and I’m enjoying it. Brody Jenner should be happy she didn’t mar his wedding.

  3. Betsy says:

    That age spread is gross. Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson are the next May-December couple I can think of, but not really because Paulson is in her 40s. People in their 40s are fully formed. People in their 20s are for the most part still forming (finishing it, but still forming).

    • STRIPE says:

      Exactly – Sarah and Holland are both well into adulthood. 21 year olds, generally speaking, are legally adults but still have a lot of growing up to do.

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree – Paulson is a mature adult.
      This is a 20 year old kid.
      Also Caitlyn is a terrible person.

      • Betsy says:

        Even with all that plastic surgery, she appears to have the face she deserves.

        I wonder how her caping for Trump and the GOP feels now.

    • Otaku Fairy... says:

      I don’t really care about her being 21 for her own sake- the fact that there’s a little bit more maturing that needs to go on doesn’t stop us from allowing 21-year-olds to take on a lot more serious decisions, commitments, and responsibilities than just dating and fucking. She has her agency. But I am side-eying this one because Kylie is about to be 21 next month and Kendall is 22. How could you not be embarrassed by a parent dating someone the same age as or younger than you? LOL.

      • perplexed says:

        If Caitlyn was 40 and this girl were 21, I’d probably just think “Typical.”

        But this particular age spread is off the charts.

  4. ichsi says:

    I can’t decide if the fact that Sophia is trans too makes it better or worse…

    • Jane says:

      I don’t know either. Good question

    • Lara K says:

      I can. It makes it worse.
      Not because there’s anything wrong with two trans people getting together. But because
      1) to me it makes it even more of a publicity thing
      2) it makes it WAY more likely that Caitlyn is taking advantage of someone who is emotionally fragile

      • Ravine says:

        Uh, since when are trans people “emotionally fragile”? I know that *as a population* they have higher suicide rates and such (thanks to society), but you can’t just look at a trans person you’ve never met and go “they’re obviously emotionally fragile”.

        As a side-note, my roommate is trans and they are easily the most even-keeled and resilient person I’ve met in my life.

  5. S says:

    You can be both proud and supportive of someone living their truth…and also think they’re still an a-hole. Pretty much my entire feeling here. Dating someone younger than your children is seriously messed up, and I’ve also found it pretty universally true that when your kids don’t like your partner, no matter what the age, that’s a giant red flag. Plus, people who chose their love interest over their kids are generally pretty awful folks. There are, I’m certain, exceptions to this rule, but I still tend to think there’s something seriously wrong with prioritizing romantic love over your children, even if they’re grown. In every scenario I’ve seen that dynamic play out in real life, the kids were always proved correct in their distaste in the long run, instead of just being “jealous,” or “resentful,” or whatever excuse is initially made by the parent and their partner.

    • Betsy says:

      I’ve known some awfully immature adults who haven’t liked their parent’s (age appropriate) partner. The new partner of a widowed longtime family friend is boring, but one of her kids just HATES the guy. I think she wanted her mother to mothball her love life after her dad died.

      I guess it is a red flag that Adult Daughter is hugely self-involved.

      • TheHufflepuffLizLemon says:

        That is incredibly sad for your family friend. My husband lost his father when he was twelve, and looking back now, would have WELCOMED having a father figure in his life. His mother basically locked up her love life and never dated again as his dad was the love of her life. Husband had a brother who did some of the things (helped him with his first car, taught him how to take care of a home, etc), but to this day, it’s both romantic and heartbreaking that she never looked at a man again, 33 years now and counting.
        Husband and I have agreed on a year of mourning, and then forcing ourselves to at least look again if something happens to one of us.

      • Betsy says:

        I’m a big take it by ear person, but widowed friend was ready for another person to spend time with. I think Adult Daughter even referenced her someday inheritance. It was just gross and shallow and I haven’t thought the same of her since.

      • Wren says:

        I’ve seen that situation too. The adult children just HATE the new partner, but I’ve known the new partner quite and they were just a regular decent human being. In those cases, it was the idea of their parent having a new partner at all that the adult children hated. “How dare our dad desecrate the memory of our mother by re-marrying!” Even though it had been years since his late wife died and he genuinely fell in love again. I’ve also seen it from spoiled adult children. “How dare my mother pay attention to anyone but me!! And this guy has rules in his house that I’m expected to follow?! Wtf?! Ugh!!” Again, it’s not the individual person, it’s the position they occupy.

        But yeah, if your kids really don’t like your new partner, maybe at least consider where they’re coming from. It may be that particular person is the problem, but it may just be the concept of another person in your life that is triggering the dislike.

  6. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Are they really in a romantic relationship or just two thirsty people seeking press? I always thought that when pictured together it was just clickbait.

  7. SJhere says:

    I wish all the Jenners and Kardashians to be ignored.
    Caitlyn, formerly Bruce Jenner seems to be living a very self-involved life.
    Seems like Jenner reinvents her life every 10 years or so. Past relationships and not be involved in his older kids life very much, points to “Me, me, me” behaviour.
    I say if not a multi-millionaire, no sane person would be involved with Jenner.
    This 21 is wasting her youth, IMO. I bet her parents are not thrilled with her choice to be involved in this relationship.

  8. Chica says:

    The only thing I see are their matching lips…

  9. Kitty says:

    Barf

  10. Aren says:

    That girl took “duck lips” to a new level.
    Caitlyn is garbage, but I’m sure the insta-model is too young to know better.

  11. Elise says:

    Hi. Just want to offer an explanation as to why the age gap in this relationship… my sibling is trans, in her early 30s and in the midst of the transition from M to F. In this very complex process, I’ve noticed recently that her maturity level has totally regressed – going from a high functioning, mature, professional adult to acting like a moody teenager – which is due to the intense hormone therapy, emotional and physical changes, etc. She feels like she is living life as her true/real/authentic self and it’s like a rebirth. Hence the emotional regression. So yeah, I have only compassion for Caitlyn and Sophia (although as an aside, I think Caitlyn was/is a crappy parent and self-involved which somewhat explains the alienation from her family, but I digress). I just can’t hate here, because I have a glimpse into how vulnerable and complicated their situation is, and if they are happy, be happy. It isn’t easy.

  12. Other Renee says:

    All kinds of no. Her parents must be devastated by her choice in partner.

  13. Surely Wolfbeak says:

    I don’t understand how everyone can ignore the most egregious thing about this whole story, Caitlyn’s shorts.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      maybe she stole them from JustEdge. He was, after all, actually wearing a bathing suit last time around.

    • Tashiro says:

      LMAO I agree I didn’t know she had such scrawny legs. She looks awful.

  14. Barrett says:

    Sugar mama much? Duh. No fool like an old fool.

  15. Nina says:

    Gross.

  16. Annie says:

    Age gaps are an issue because when it’s too big, the older person manipulates the younger person very easily. Never ever let anyone tell you age is just a number. Age is wisdom, age is experience, age is a different perspective. The older person in the relationship knows how to gaslight and control the much younger person. That’s why they pick younger partners. There’s so much they don’t quite grasp yet. These relationships with enormous gaps are forever shady to me.
    And please don’t give me your anecdotal evidence on how your parents are 50 years apart and they’re soulmates. It’s still shady.

    • Whitecat says:

      Thanks for saying this Annie. Age gaps are a huge issue. I was in one when I was young (14-22), and although I thought I was mAturer than my age, etc, it was not only after my ex’s death did I realize I was gaslighted, manipulated and groomed. There is a lot of potential for abuse. There is a reason where grown ass adults target younger and even teenagers.

      • Otaku Fairy... says:

        You were only 14 though. I would start to side-eye (at best) anyone out of their teens who was dating a 14-year-old. With this situation the younger party is 21 though (old enough to be held accountable if she were to make the decision to go out and ‘date’ someone under 16 in most states).

  17. Portugal says:

    This is disgusting and abusive.
    Doesn’t matter how mature, intelligent and smart any 21 year old is, there is no way they have a life experience of someone nearing 70.
    There is no degree in life experience.
    Bruce/Caitlyn is not a decent human being, much worse than any Kardashian.
    Maybe Caitlyn should be much more focused
    on becoming a better more informed, kind and less “me, me, me” human being and less on what she looks like…designer shoes, handbags, clothes, makeup and hair…
    There is a lot more to being woman…

    • Otaku Fairy... says:

      I definitely agree that Caitlyn Jenner is not a decent person in general, (she’s a Deplorable too). But the relationship is tacky- not necessarily abusive. There has to be a distinction made between women and girls being abused/forced/coerced into doing something they don’t want to do and women making decisions we frown upon. An adult doesn’t have to have the same life experience/ maturity as the adult they’re dating or sleeping with in order for it to be consensual.

  18. Beth says:

    Dating someone who’s old enough to be your grandparent is too much of an age gap. Yuck

  19. JRenee says:

    So if Caitlin was just a regular joe, this 21 year old would be interested…ooookkkkaaayyy.
    It’s all about Caitlin

  20. Abby says:

    Wow, Sophia really looks like a woman. I didn’t believe she was trans at first.

  21. Dragonlady Sakura says:

    Sophia, run for your life! You can do soooo much better than Caitlyn. Dating someone around the same age as your kids is gross !

  22. Reef says:

    When I saw that pic, I hollered. lol. My first thought was this girl better graduate with no student loans. Only way this would be acceptable.

  23. Shannon says:

    Ew. My mom is 63; I’m 42 and my SON is 23. So basically, Caitlyn is old enough to be this young woman’s grandmother! I try not to be too judgey about big age differences in full-grown adults (you’re 40, you wanna get with a 65-year-old, go on a do you). But this is just gross. I can only imagine how this girl’s parents feel about this. I would lose my sh!t if my son called and told me he was dating a 68-year-old. I mean, this girl was like 11 when the Kardashians show first came out.

  24. Cris Wright says:

    Am I the only one who thinks this girl resembles Kim Kardashian in the face a LOT?!? Which adds another whole level of creepy…

  25. Yes Doubtful says:

    Sounds like some parental issues on both their parts.

  26. gretchen roberson says:

    Caitlyn looks gross..just sayin..and being with this young girl??? I feel sorry for Kendall and Kylie..they’re about the same age!!!
