Who Is Vanderpump Rules' Kristen Doute's New Boyfriend?

Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute has finally revealed the identity of her mystery boyfriend. Fans have been wondering who the previously unnamed beau is for more than a month, after she revealed that she was dating someone new in an Instagram Live on March 15. "The boy that I'm dating is not in the country at the moment, so hopefully he makes it back," she said (via Us Weekly).

On April 14, she revealed that her boyfriend made it back to the U.S. before the coronavirus pandemic made traveling too difficult, and that the pair are enjoying their courtship while observing social distancing

"We're having a really great time and he's kind of back and forth between his house and mine — and that's fine because we're not socially interacting with anyone else," Kristen said on the Scheananigans podcast on April 14. "He's a really nice guy that our whole friend group knows."

Who is Kristen Doute's new boyfriend?

Us Weekly has confirmed that Kristen's boyfriend is Alex Menache. The couple have been seeing each other since at least January, although they appear to have known each other for much longer. In March 2018, fellow Vanderpump Rules star Katie Maloney-Schwartz posted a group photo on Instagram that included both Kristen and Alex.

Kristen's new boyfriend seems to keep a low profile. His Instagram account is currently private, but Life & Style reported that his feed shows several pictures of houses that he has flipped. He also seems to be tight with the Vanderpump Rules cast and is followed by both Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney-Schwartz.

Things seem to be heating up quickly between Kristen and Alex, who is reportedly looking for something serious. "He wants to get married and have kids soon," a source told Us Weekly. "He's from the Valley and he owns a lot of apartment buildings in the L.A. area. He's not the L.A. type who is friends with lots of celebs though. He has been looking for a wife."
