Will Sofia Richie be added to the cast of Keeping Up With the Kardashians ahead of the E! Network reality series' 15th season?
As the remaining episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians Season 14 continue to air, fans are wondering if Scott Disick's 19-year-old model girlfriend will soon join him and his co-stars, including his ex-girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian, on future episodes of the show.
“Scott is desperate for the Kardashian family to accept his girlfriend Sofia. Scott is hopeful that if Sofia is allowed into the family, his life will get easier and it will create more opportunity for them as a couple,” a source told Hollywood Life on Dec. 29.
Disick, 34, and Richie first faced rumors of a romance earlier this year. However, the couple didn't confirm their dating relationship until the end of summer, around the time Kardashian, 38, went public with her younger man, 24-year-old Younes Bendjima.
“Scott has been sweet talking Kris constantly telling her all the wonderful qualities of Sofia, trying to get Kris more on board and accepting of their relationship. Scott is convinced that if he can get Kris Jenner to approve of him dating Sofia, then maybe the rest of the family will follow," the source added. "He would like to be able to spend time with Sofia when he is with his kids and even have her featured on KUWTK.”
Disick has been starring on Keeping Up With the Kardashians since the show began due to his past romance with Kardashian. As fans will recall, Kardashian and Disick dated for nine years before splitting in 2015 and share three children, including 8-year-old Mason, 5-year-old Penelope, and 3-year-old Reign.
Fans will have to wait and see whether or not Richie joins Disick and the Kardashians for Keeping Up With the Kardashians Season 15. A recent rumor, however, suggested that Disick may have a backup plan to expose his new romance on television.
As a Life & Style report revealed earlier this week, Disick is hoping to increase his cash flow by starring in a show of his own with his younger girlfriend. That said, there have been no confirmed plans for any such thing.
To see more of Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian, and their family, including her sisters, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner, tune into Keeping Up With the Kardashians Season 14, which returns to the E! Network on Jan. 9 at 9 p.m.
