Brody Jenner is officially off the market following the recent news of he and “wife” Kaitlynn Carter’s split.
The Hills: New Beginnings star confirmed that he is in fact dating model (and former The Mother/Daughter Experiment star) Josie Canseco when TMZ spotted the two out celebrating Brody’s 36th birthday on Wednesday. In the video posted by the site, Brody even went as far as to tell the camera crew that Josie is “absolutely” the marrying type.

If Brody and Josie ultimately do make their way down the aisle, the marriage would technically be Brody’s first. As The Ashley previously told you, despite having a ceremony in Indonesia in June of 2018, Brody and Kaitlynn were never actually legally married. Shortly after announcing their split, Kaitlynn was photographed vacationing and kissing newly-single Miley Cyrus, before Brody had been spotted out on the town with Josie.
While some on social media came for Kaitlynn for appearing to have moved on so quickly, Brody was quick to come to his ex’s defense.
“There is far too much negativity being directed at someone who I love and and care about very much,” he wrote on Instagram. “I feel the need to set the story straight. Kaitlynn and I have been best friends for 6 years, and we continue to be. We, like many others before us and many others after us, grew in different directions over those same 6 years.”
Brody went on to call Kaitlynn a “wonderful person, beautiful and fun to be with, always a positive force in my life,” though he said the two had decided it was best to move forward separately.
“I respect Kaitlynn and care deeply about her,” he continued. “She deserves to be able to move forward in her life with respect and happiness.”
The exes showed once again that there is nothing but love between the two of them when Kaitlynn and Miley gifted Brody with some greenery in honor of his 36th birthday this week. Brody shared a video of his gifts on Instagram, which included a punny birthday wish from the girls.
“Brody, WEED like to wish you a Happy Birthday! Love you! Miley & Kaitlynn,” the card read.
Well, Kaitlynn and Brody’s “marriage” may have gone up in smoke, but at least their friendship didn’t burn along with it.
