The Kate Plus 8 star has been dating 51-year-old businessman Jeff Prescott for several months, E! News can exclusively report.
Prescott, a divorced father of three, is the COO and co-founder of Dreamstime, an Internet-based stockpiler and supplier of digital images for media outlets and both corporate and personal clientele.
In 2007, the Brentwood, Tenn.-based company's value was heading toward $15 million, according to the Nashville Business Journal, and some reports have pegged it as being worth 20 times' that today.
But what about his relationship with Kate, you ask?!
These two have been pretty tight since at least October, when there were sightings of them in New York City, where she had been shooting the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice.
However, the relatively new couple have obviously kept a low profile, refraining from venturing out in public side-by-side—a handy way to evade the paparazzi's ever-present lens.
But since we know how particular Kate has been as far as letting a man into her life since her divorce from Jon Gosselin in 2009, Prescott has got to be quite the guy. The list of causes he's involved with would certainly attest to that: He's president of the Deaf Children's Foundation, Octagon Sports Nutrition and the Nature's Youth Fit Kids Foundation, as well as director of Nature's Youth.
Back in 2011, Kate told E! News that she was trying to be "a little more open-minded" when it came to dating. "If there's anyone out there who wants to deal with us," she said, referring to the built-in chaos that comes with having eight kids and being famous, "that would be good."
The tabloid fixture seemed to be taking a break from the ole ball game last year to focus on her family and work, telling us, "I don't think that I look for a future person as far as, 'Come in, help me raise my eight kids!'"
"If someone is willing to do that, that could be the right person, but it's certainly not something I expect," the reality-TV star said. "It's a shocking life. You can talk, talk, talk and to walk in my door and actually try that on and wear it, gosh, that's going to have to be a brave person. I don't know. Maybe I don't believe that person exists."
And with that much more life experience under her belt this past June, when asked if there were any potential suitors on the horizon, Kate told E! News, flatly, that anyone in the running "needs to be made of titanium. Steel doesn't cut it anymore."
Well, may the CEO of Dreamstime prove his mettle.
