Kelly Rohrbach is expecting her first child with Walmart heir Steuart Walton

Baywatch star Kelly Rohrbach sits down to do an interview

Kelly Rohrbach became famous in 2014/15 when she suddenly began appearing on Sports Illustrated covers and in various swimwear photoshoots. Leonardo DiCaprio took notice that there was a new attractive, leggy blonde on the market and they began dating. There were a few problems! One, Kelly was dangerously close to 25 years old when they started up. And two, Kelly absolutely parlayed the DiCaprio relationship to get more jobs. They broke up just before her 25th birthday (of course, that’s a firm deadline). By 2017, Kelly had gone for a guy with a much lower profile and a lot more money: Steuart Walton, one of the WalMart heirs. They quietly married in 2019 and now she’s eight months pregnant.

“Baywatch” movie star and former Sports Illustrated model Kelly Rohrbach and Walmart heir Steuart Walton are expecting their first child, sources exclusively tell Page Six. Rohrbach, 31, is about eight months along, a source said, and the couple are expecting a boy next month.

“They have a name picked out, but are keeping it quiet,” an insider told us. “They aren’t telling anybody.” We hear that the pair is even already planning for more kids.

The very private couple quietly married in 2019, after they reportedly began dating in 2017. A source told E! News at the time that Walton — whose family is worth a reported $238 billion — was even taking Rohrbach for “flying lessons on his personal plane.”

The Waltons are America’s richest family. Steuart — whose paternal grandfather was Walmart founder Sam Walton — is on the board of Walmart as well as his family’s Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.

The 40-year-old is also the co-founder of Runway Group — “a holding company that invests in real estate, hospitality and other businesses in Northwest Arkansas,” according to the Walton Family Foundation website, and is the founder of Game Composites, a company that designs and builds small composite aircraft.

Good for her! We honestly barely hear about her anymore, and that’s by her design. This is the life she’s chosen! Why do swimwear photoshoots when you’re married to a billionaire and having billionaire babies? Good for her, truly. She went from a wealthy Connecticut family to Georgetown to modeling to Hollywood and now she’s about to give birth to another Walmart heir. A lady with set goals.

    Well done, Kelly. Gotta appreciate a good hustle.

  2. It’sJustBlanche says:

    Hmmm. Rich guy, private plane he’s learning to fly? What could possibly go wrong?

    Don’t get on the plane with him!!!

  3. Mina_Esq says:

    I like it when Leo’s girlfriends use him as a jumping board for bigger and better things. I don’t like users, but it’s only fair in the specific context of Leo’s relationships.

    • Millennial says:

      I agree, I appreciate Leo being Giselle, Blake, and Kelly’s Good Luck Chuck.

      • kimmy says:

        I still remember Lainey Gossip’s coverage of Blake and Leo and then Blake and Ryan and how amazed everyone was that Blake pulled that off. I still find that the most interesting thing about Blake Lively.

    • girl_ninja says:

      He totally is Good Luck Chuck. This is the version that I would rather watch though. I have always been fascinated by the jump off Blake Lively managed to wrangle in Ryan Reynolds.

  4. Katherine says:

    Wouldn’t mind to be her, I’ll admit. Best wishes to them

  5. FHMom says:

    I’ve never heard of either of them, but they are a super cute couple. I doubt marrying an heir was her plan. Looks like she fell in love. Eat of luck to them. And like the previous poster wrote, stay away from private planes

    • goofpuff says:

      Her plan was always to marry someone wealthy and well connected because she’s ambitious and not above using relationships to further her goals (look at her dating history). No shade on that. She’s got good hustle and landed someone who is also good looking, young, and a billionaire. As long as they’re happy, who cares.

  6. lurry says:

    Get money b*tch! *Khia voice*

  7. Lady Keller says:

    Unless she has a secret plan to convince her husband and in laws to pay their employees a living wage I really have no respect for her for landing a billionaire.

    • Sally says:

      Yeah, I mean I can appreciate a good hustle, if it really is a hustle, but that’s not a poor blue collar girl using her good looks to get ahead in life, that’s a woman from a rich and well-connected family who married into one of the worst billionaire families in the world and now is making more of them. Not that there are good billionaires out there, you don’t amass that much money without spilling blood, but the Walton family is one of the worst out there. But he’s hot, so it’s ok somehow.

    • Emma says:

      Yeah, can we not be congratulating women on (1) marrying a rich man, or (2) marrying a rich man who is on the board of Walmart and therefore enforces and directly benefits from some of the most despicable and exploitative corporate labor policies in the country today? That’s crap. Do any of you on here excitedly posting “you go, girl” understand what life is like for the average Walmart employee? Jesus.

      I’d literally have more respect for a KarJenner because at least they made their own money. Jesus. Again.

    • Truthiness says:

      Absolutely. A living wage WITH health care.

    • Tate says:

      Yes. This 1000%.

  8. Emily says:

    I remember back when her and Leo first started dating, somebody was in the Celebitchy comment section spamming praise for her. Not sure if it was her, her PR team or her mom but it was done in a really cringy obvious way.

    “Kelly Rohrbach is one of a kind..” and then something about her being good at golf or something?

    I’m glad things worked out for her though. 😆

    He was in charge of economic recovery from COVID in Arkansas which benefitted Walmart and not small businesses. So congrats on the kid, must be nice to be wealthy.

    • Lucy2 says:

      Sadly nothing about that surprises me.

    • kgeo says:

      Yep. I love what he does for mountain biking in Arkansas, but that’s about it. I do think he has good intentions, but maybe also blinders.

    • sassafras says:

      When I visited Bentonville/ Rogers for work a few years ago, I heard multiple people speak highly of the work this generation of Waltons is doing in the region. They felt like they were investing in the community (although to be fair, some called it gentrification). I like the intentions – hope they can make a difference with the cash they did nothing to earn.

    The sequel to Rachel of the white lotus, on the set of succession.

    He pushed for reopening Arkansas despite covid because his family was losing money….

    • Ashley says:

      But Rachel was poor.

      I’m all for Hustle too but rich brat marries another rich brat is just what rich people do. If anything Kelly was no Bar or Giselle. She’s the lesser known, not as good Léo exes.
