Kristin Cavallari, boyfriend Mark Estes ‘unfazed’ by age criticism

Kristin Cavallari and her new beau, Mark Estes, are “unfazed” by criticism of their 12-year age difference, a source close to the athlete tells Page Six exclusively.

“They’re two consenting adults who like each other, so who cares?” our insider says. “Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but Kristin and Mark aren’t paying attention to the noise.”

Neither Cavallari’s rep nor Estes immediately responded to Page Six’s requests for comment.

The “Hills” star, 37, and the hunky Montana native, 24, debuted their relationship on social media Tuesday.

While Cavallari wrote that Estes “makes [her] happy,” many of her 4.7 million Instagram followers were quick to troll the pair.

“She’s finally posting pics of her kids,” one fan joked of the reality star, who shares three children with her ex-husband, Jay Cutler.

“What in the teenage boy is this,” another user quipped of Estes, who was only 4 years old when “Laguna Beach,” the show that put Cavallari on the map, premiered in 2004.

“He needs to cook a little longer,” a third person commented.

“Who’s that your son ?” one more follower facetiously asked.

Page Six previously reported that Cavallari and Estes’ “new” relationship is not “official yet,” as they have “been talking” for just a few weeks.

However, our source shared, “Kristin thinks Mark is super hot. He’s very flirtatious, and she’s loving it.”

The duo recently vacationed together in Mexico, where they packed on the PDA in a poolside video shared on the football player’s TikTok page.

The reality star was previously married to former NFL star Jay Cutler. Instagram

Estes was born in October 1999 and graduated from Montana Technological University in December 2023. In addition to being a wide receiver for his school’s Orediggers team, he is known as a member of the popular TikTok account Montana Boyz.

Cavallari has been linked to a slew of men since her 2020 divorce from former Chicago Bears quarterback Cutler, including comedian Jeff Dye and country singer Chase Rice.

The Uncommon James founder and Cutler, 40, share 11-year-old son Camden, 9-year-old son Jaxon and 8-year-old daughter Saylor.
