Yes, Kristen and Luke Just Bought Land Together — in a Very Unexpected State

 Hint: Luke and Kristen's real estate purchase isn’t in Colorado or California.

By Jill Sederstrom

Could the answer to Kristen Doute and Luke Broderick’s ongoing dispute about whether to put down roots in California or Colorado be another state altogether?

Kristen recently revealed to Daily Dish that she and Luke purchased property together in Indiana. 

The spot has a close personal tie for Luke (it’s located in the same neighborhood as his dad) — but the couple aren’t ready to call the Hoosier state home just yet.

“We’ve already bought a lot together in Indiana,” Kristen told Daily Dish in March. “At this point, I think … we bought it just to flip it, but it’s in his dad’s neighborhood, so we’re like, maybe we’ll knock some trees down and build, I don’t know.” 

Where will Kristen and Luke live?

While they bought land together in Indiana, Kristen and Luke are still weighing where they'll live, with options including California and Colorado.

The topic of where to call home has been a point of friction for the T-shirt designer and her beau on The Valley.

While Kristen would like to stay in sunny California, Luke would prefer the less congested mountains of Colorado, where he already owns a 70-acre ranch. 

“He's not the biggest fan of, like, a big city. He's never lived in a big city like Los Angeles,” Kristen explained. “But rural Colorado where he lives is just like, kind of middle of nowhere. It's beautiful and amazing and I love that we have that place to escape to, but I think we need to find some sort of middle ground that feeds both of our needs.”

For now, Luke — who has a background in real estate — has been splitting his time between the two states. 

“He’s still in the Valley right now, kind of between the Valley and Colorado,” Kristen told Daily Dish. 

California may be Kristen’s preferred home, but even she admits she doesn’t see herself staying in her current situation in an apartment in Los Angeles forever.

“I also want space,” she said. “I mean, I’m in an apartment right now and that’s not conducive to the life I want and the happiness I need,” she said, adding she craves “sunshine,” a yard and a place for her “dogs to be happy.” 

“So, we’re working on figuring out where that might be,” she said.

It’s possible the answer to the dilemma could even be more than one address.

“He’s a rugged man and he loves to build,” Kristen dished. “Our plan is to have lots of properties in many places.” 

Are Kristen and Luke still trying to get pregnant?

Kristen and Luke still have plenty of time to work out the details of their future together — but there’s one thing they both can agree on: their desire to have a baby

The couple have been actively trying to get pregnant for the last year. Kristen shared with PEOPLE in November that she’d suffered a miscarriage at six weeks pregnant.

After the heartbreaking blow, the couple are now focused on happier times ahead.

“We’re back on the train working on it, so fingers crossed that we get good news some time soon,” she told Daily Dish.

To follow Kristen and Luke on their journey toward parenthood, watch The Valley Tuesday nights on Bravo or available streaming the next day on Peacock.
