The friendship sparked into something more romantic during Thanksgiving in 2019 when they started chatting following a family dinner.
“We went back for dinner that night. I just saw how sweet he was with his mom, we were talking more and I just felt, like, this really amazing connection.

What is Carter Reum’s dating history?
Carter Reum is known to have a daughter with reality star actress Laura Bellizzi.
Laura also previously made headlines for being in a relationship with Mel Gibson.
His daughter has lived with her mother since she was born in 2013 and Reum has only reportedly met her once.
The entrepreneur does not have a traditional father-daughter relationship with the child but does support her financially.
An insider claimed that the child had been “triggered” after witnessing Carter’s wedding to Paris, and felt “left out” of her father’s life.
“She just wants to really complete the missing pieces of her puzzle,” added the insider.
“She’s at that age where self-identity is so important, and children want to know who they are and where they come from. It’s important for him to help her with that.
‘It’s not about [Carter] or the mother. It’s about making the child whole. She is absolutely an amazing little girl.
“She has so much love to give. And she wants to give it to him, his family and whoever he chooses to love.”
A spokesperson for Carter has previously stated: “The people who this story matters to have known about it for 10 years.
“Carter supports this child. While he does not have a traditional father-daughter relationship with her, he has provided for her since she was born, and will continue to do so.”
What have fans said about Carter?
In 2021 Carter and Paris starred on their own reality TV show, Paris in Love.
But viewers were left doubting Carter’s true intentions.
One fan on Twitter shared: “Watched #ParisInLove, & Carter seems so toxic, overbearing & controlling. Putting her down in front of his fam, grilling her, hovering over her…creep!
“Thought she was going to cry. I feel sad for her…she’s been emotionally abused for so long, hope she finds true happiness.”
Another stated: “5 episodes deep and Carter has gone from Prince Charming to controlling manipulator real quick. How he stood behind her at the table. That was humiliating for her and he smiled.”
A third summed it up: “Carter is a walking red flag. This isn’t a “nice guy”, this is just a toxic ugly man.”
However, a production source told The Sun: “Carter’s obviously into the wedding but he hates the TV stuff around it.
“He’s a nice guy but he freezes on camera.
“He’s hating every second of this, I wonder how long he will last.”
In the years following Carter seems to have put rumors to bed as the couple have stayed happily married and welcomed their baby in 2023.
