We've seen Jax Taylor's girlfriends come and go, but these days a certain Southern belle seems to have stolen the SURver's heart. Since the Vanderpump Rules model/bartender began dating Brittany Cartwright in May 2015, their relationship has quickly progressed from a Las Vegas flirtation (they met in Sin City) to a Los Angeles cohabitation (yes, they currently live together). And while we've seen Brittany leave her mark on Vanderpump Rules this season, you still might want to know a little more about her. Get to know the 27-year-old Kentucky native, below.
She's Basically a SURver
She may not have scored a position at SUR after meeting with Lisa Vanderpump, but she's definitely in with the crew. Between spa days and girls' nights out, Brittany fits right in with the close-knit group.
She's an Animal Lover
When she isn't sharing adorable snapshots of her pup, Kingsley, on Instagram (see above and try not to melt from his adorableness), she uses her Twitter feed for good by shining a light on pets who need a good home.
She's a Total Betty (Crocker)
Lucky for Jax, she has skills in the kitchen. And it turns out, Jax is "the happiest" after she's whipped him up a meal.
She Loves Sports
Between hitting up hockey games with her beau to rooting for her favorite teams (like the University of Kentucky Wildcats), Brittany isn't shy about showing her pledging her allegiance.
Apparently she's not the type who's afraid of some elbow grease. Considering she grew up on a farm, it should come as no surprise that Brittany is willing to put together furniture herself.
She's Got a Past...
...as a model. Much like her boyfriend, Brittany has dabbled in the world of professional posing. While she hasn't actively used her Model Mayhem profile in several years, it's clear at one point the L.A. transplant was mulling a career in front of the camera. You can check out her portfolio here.
She's an Aquarius
Brittany was born on January 25 and celebrated turning 27 at PUMP this week with a beautiful cake and an equally-lovely message from Jax. "You make me a better man everyday, I love you so much !!" he shared on her big day.
She Has Something in Common with Lisa Vanderpump
Turns out they both own mini horses. Who would have guessed?
She's All About Family
We don't mind saying that her brother Wesley is just as adorable as she is.
She's a Hooters Girl
This Southern lady has worn the chain's famous tank, working as a bartender "#slangindranks."
She Doesn't Have a Foot Fetish
