Things are getting really serious between Kristen Doute and boyfriend Brian Carter!

The Vanderpump Rules star tells E! News exclusively that she and Brian are moving in to a new place together very soon, and they recently welcomed an adorable addition to their family...

Kristen, 33, and Brian, 31, met in July via the dating app Bumble. According to Kristen, they were already "serious" about each other "by the end of August," and because she lived in Hollywood and Brian lived in Venice, they split their time between their respective residences, "spend[ing] a couple of days here, a couple of days there."

"Then, when my accident happened in October, he was here taking care of me, the entire month before my surgery and then the month after," she says. "After that, his lease was up and it was decision-making time. Instead of signing a new lease, he started staying with me."

"But we finally decided to get a brand new place together," says Kristen. "We just signed the lease and we'll be in within the next two weeks. We also just got a puppy together!" (The puppy, an adorable little guy named Gibson Nicks, is the adorable addition to their family we mentioned earlier.)

When asked whether she thinks Brian is "The One," Kristen doesn't even hesitate. "Totally, no question," she tells E! News. "It's hard to explain. I was talking to my friend Jade [Roper, from Bachelor in Paradise] who just got married [to Tanner Tolbert], and she told me, 'To each their own. When you know, you know.'"

"The best thing about him is that he's just very honest and communicative," gushes the Vanderpump Rules star of her beau. "Our communication skills are spot-on. It works. It just does. When we met, we just sort of knew on the first sight. My friends love him, his friends love me. It just works."

So does this mean we'll be seeing more of Brian on the show? "He doesn't have a choice!" says Kristen. "He lives with me know. We talk about him a lot on the reunion—you'll see."

Vanderpump Rules airs Mondays at 9/8C on Bravo.
