Kristen Cavallari and Matt Estes

Meet Mark Estes, the 24-year-old football player and TikToker dating Kristen Cavallari

He loves fishing and country girls


Since making her name on Laguna Beach and The Hills, Kristen Cavallari has been known for not caring what people think about her, and dating Mark Estes is just another continuation of that tradition. Their relationship has caused quite a stir due to their 13-year-old age gap when Kristen, a 37-year-old mother of three, debuted it on the gram last week. However, amid all that fuss about her being 37 years old, it seemed apt to answer the question: Who is Matt Estes, the 24-year-old TikToker that has caught the heart of Kristen Cavallari?

Mark Estes is part of the Montana Boyz TikTok group

Mark runs the account with his friends Kaleb Campbell Winterburn and Kade Wilcox. Their account boasts more than 532,000 followers after they started making videos together in 2021. They dance and show off the cowboy lifestyle. As part of their hand launch, Kristen Cavallari has already guest starred in one of their videos. In the clip, the trio are seen dancing to Jason Aldean’s 2009 song She’s Country before she pops out as a surprise feature. Kristen is seen wearing a t-shirt that reads ‘This Ain’t My First Coors Rodeo’.

Matt helps run a clothing business

A huge part of their social media venture involves selling their Belmont Acres clothing brand, which includes an array of sweatshirts and caps. The name comes from the well-known area of Montana, the state that binds them all together. This entrepreneurial spirit is something he shares with Kristen, who has run her fashion and lifestyle brand Uncommon James since 2017.

The same year that Kristen founded her brand, Matt was looking at his further education prospects. After a successful high school career playing sports like baseball, track and field and so on, he shared the news that he was heading to college to play football. Via Instagram, he wrote that he “would like to announce that I am committing to Montana State, couldn’t have done it without the support through friends, family and God. #gocatsgo #bobcatfootball.”

By 2021, he was named as a student at Montana Tech University. Last year, he reflected on his academic and athletic journey, captioning another Instagram post: “What a ride. Thankful for the last six years of what this sport has brought me. Thanks to all the coaches and brothers I met along the way.”

Matt lives in Nashville too

After graduating from college, Matt seems to split his time between Montana and the same city that Kristen lives in. Their union comes after Kristen told US Weekly all about how dating apps are not for her as she wanted “passion and fire” and that she could only really see herself meeting someone “at the grocery store” because she is such a homebody.

Matt loves the great outdoors

As someone who claims to love being a country boy, Matt sure does appreciate the lifestyle and all the hobbies he gets to partake in because of it. He often shares snaps of the catches of the day he gets while out fishing with his boys. Maybe he will take Kristen’s three kids, Camden, Sailor and Jax along with him for some bonding time?

He ‘makes’ Kristen ‘happy’

Kristen hard-launched her love affair with the man 13 years her junior via Instagram. In the caption of a selfie of them on holiday in Cabo San Lucas, she wrote: “He makes me happy,” along with a white heart emoji and two red heart ones last week. Kristen was previously married to NFL star Jay Culter from 2013 to 2020.
