When it comes to Sofia Richie's relationship with Scott Disick, she likes to keep it private.

The 20-year-old model has been dating the 35-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star for about a year and a half. While their romance is hardly a secret, they rarely talk about it in the press.

'I think a lot of people think they have to prove their relationships through social media and I'm just happy being private about my relationship. It's not like I won't post pictures about it, but I like having my little private life," Sofia said in an April 2019 cover interview with Tatler, available on digital download and on newsstands on February 28.

Scott and Sofia have been photographed together in public many times and occasionally appear on each other's social media feeds.


"We are very happy, very lovey dovey," Sofia told the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper's The Goss last September, when asked about Scott. "We are best friends and that is mainly the strongest connection we have. We have always had that best friend connection and from there it has really worked out. I am so happy."

In February 2018, Sofia told E! News, when asked what makes her relationship with Scott special, "I just think he's the male version of me. Our humor. We have very similar humor."

Meanwhile, Sofia has grown closer with Scott's family. In December, the two vacationed with his ex Kourtney Kardashian and her and Scott's three kids in Cabo, marking the first time Sofia and Kourtney have been photographed together. Scott jokingly captioned a photo of the trio, "THREE'S COMPANY."

Also that month, Sofia joined Scott and the extended Kardashian-Jenner family on a trip to Aspen. Sofia also attended the family's annual Christmas party.
