Kris, 60, split from husband Bruce Jenner in 2013; Bruce transitioned into Caitlyn earlier this year. Kris has been dating Corey, a 35-year-old music manager, for over a year.

"He's such a nice person," says Kim. "She can connect with him and go to the movies with him, work out with him. It's the little things."



As for the 25-year-age difference? Kim says she had a laugh when sister Kourtney, 36, posted a photo calling Corey a Grandpa (Kris has four young grandchildren Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, North, 2 and Reign, 11 months).

"She was like, 'Is this rude?'" says Kim. "And I'm like, no it's funny! He's young and he's a Grandpa!"
