Gina Kirschenheiter is living her best life right now, and after splitting from her ex, she totally deserves it. Her former husband, Matt Kirschenheiter, cheated on the Real Housewives of Orange County star. In June of 2019, Matt was charged with felony domestic violence after he allegedly assaulted Gina.
Now Gina has announced that she is returning to RHOC for her third season as a full-time Housewife. Not only that, but she has a new man in her life—Travis Mullen. And the couple has taken a giant leap forward in their relationship.
After six months of dating, the couple has moved in together, and between them they have three boys and three girls. In an interview with People, Gina said, “We’re a modern-day Brady Bunch. We’re one maid away from having someone to fill out that center square!” I do enjoy Gina’ sense of humor.
“It’s kind of major. I know it’s nuts, but we’ve been together half a year. And when I think about that, I’m like, ‘That’s not a long time.’ But I honestly feel like I’ve known him forever. It seems so much longer,” Gina told People. “He’s just a kind-hearted human, he’s adorable, and he has such a good heart. And he loves me for all of me; my imperfections, my craziness, my past– he loves me in spite of it all. And for me, the biggest shift was being in a relationship with someone who just cares about what’s going on in my day.”
Gina shares Nicholas, Sienna, and Luca with her ex-husband. Travis has two girls and one boy from his previous relationship. The children range in age from 3 years old to 8 years old. Wow–that’s a big brood under one roof.
The blended family is residing in a three-bedroom home that Gina purchased. “Their personalities complement each other so well. And they’re just so cute,” Gina said of the children. “It’s really nice to see how close the kids are and how much they love each other. They’re just so happy together, all six of the kids, that it makes us feel so confident in this decision, and reminds us that we’re doing the right thing.”
But the couple isn’t ready to march down the aisle just yet. “I kind of truly feel like if you’re in a relationship and you’re kind of always looking for that next thing, it’s because you’re not really content in the relationship,” Gina explained. “And then once you get to that next thing, it’s not going to make you content. So for me, I’m enjoying having a partner in life so much that marriage doesn’t really matter to me.” She added, “Who knows, maybe one day. But it’s way too early now. Plus, I don’t want to plan a wedding. But I’ll go to everybody else’s! At least I have a date now!”
