IG Official! About a week ago, media outlets picked up the story that The Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan King was off the market. Based on her IG, she clearly spent Memorial Day weekend in Park City, Utah, where her alleged new boyfriend resides.
However, Meghan never officially confirmed or denied her relationship. Until today, May 27, when she posted a selfie with Christian Schauf, confirming they’re a couple.
Who is Christian Schauf?
The Utah resident owns and operates his own company, Uncharted Supply Co. The brand sells survival kits and Christian’s own dog, Barron, is the company’s mascot. Barron is a Swiss Mountain Dog and accompanies his dad on many outdoors adventures, Christian’s Instagram reveals.
Barron even has his own Insta – @barrontheswissmountaindog
Like Meghan, Christian is very outdoorsy. After spending the weekend with him in Utah, she posted that she’d been hiking and biking. She even jokingly said she was going to become a mountain woman.
The RHOC First Met Him in March
People reports that the RHOC star was introduced to Christian in March by mutual friends. He frequently travels between L.A. and Utah.
Not only did the couple become Instagram official, they did an exclusive photoshoot for People that will appear in the magazine’s print issue next week.
As fans know, Meghan split from Jim Edmonds in October 2019. The former baseball player abruptly filed for divorce months after a cheating scandal. The scandal involved him sending inappropriate photos to another woman.
Jim and Meghan tried to save their marriage, but ultimately went their separate ways. Jim quickly rebounded with Kortnie O’Connor, the woman the former married couple once had a threesome tryst with.
The former RHOC star’s three young children have been quarantining with her in L.A. for the last few months. However, the kids spent the weekend with Jim while Meghan was in Utah. She posted a sweet photo of her reunion with her kids, as TV Shows Ace features.
Meghan’s New BF Leaves Flirty Comment on Her Instagram Post
Days after posting the reunion photo, Meghan took to Instagram to share another cute photo. Except the photo featured Christian and his dog, Barron.
Meghan and Christian cuddle together, both wearing plaid shirts with Barron in the background behind him. It’s unclear if Barron is disapproving or merely sleeping.
Several of Meghan’s former RHOC co-stars, including Tamra Judge, gave the post their seal of approval. More than one of Meghan’s followers wrote that Christian is an “upgrade” from Jim.
Christian slid into Meghan’s comment section to leave her a flirty comment. “I really like you in a flannel and a smile,” he wrote.
The Real Housewives of Orange County will likely return to Bravo at some point later. Meghan left the show after Season 12. However, she appeared in Season 14 as a guest.
