NFL star and Kim Kardashian castoff Reggie Bush got married over the weekend to Lilit Avagyan, an Armenian dancer and the mother of his child.
Here’s what you should know about Avagyan, her relationship with Bush, and why their wedding was such a gossip goldmine.
1. They Have a Baby Daughter
Last week Bush shared this photo of Avagyan with their adorable 14-month-old daughter, named Briseis.
Avagyan gave birth to the babyon May 6, 2013, after dating Bush for a year and a half. Bush announced the news in a Florida radio interviewin October 2012, when he was playing for the Dolphins.
2. She Looks Just Like Kim Kardashian, Reggie’s Ex
Like her more-famous doppelganger, Avagyan is of Armenian descent and shares the raven hair and olive skin that mark Bush’s type.
When she first came on the scene, gossip hounds instantly billed her as a Kim K “lookalike.” It was just too easy.
And Avagyan wasn’t even his first Kim lookalike. Sandwiched between Kardashian and Avagyan, Bush dated Melissa Molinaro, another curvaceous brunette who’s often compared to Kim and known for Old Navy TV commercials.
Bush and Kardashian called it quits in 2010 after a three-year rocky relationship. She went on to marry NBA player Kris Humphries and, after their divorce, rap icon Kanye West.
During the contentious Humphries divorce case, his ex famously claimed Kardashian cheated on Bush with Kanye.
3. Kim’s Stepbrother Went to Bush’s Wedding After Skipping Hers
In gossip circles, Bush and Avagyan’s wedding, held at the posh Grand Del Mar hotelin San Diego, was more notable for a certain guest than for the bride and groom.
And of course it involves Kim Kardashian.
Brody Jenner, Kardashian’s stepbrother, was at the wedding with a beautiful blonde on his arm, girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter.
This is a big deal because he skipped Kim and Kanye’s weddingso he could DJ a party — and because he’s clearly good buddies with her bitter ex.
It’s being called the latest Kardashian Krisis.
4. Avagyan Is a Renowned Dancer
For most of her life, Avagyan her passion, dance. Her talents have been recognized on multiple occasions.
