Sánchez is a family friend and has been seen in public with both Kardashian and mom Kris Jenner on multiple occasions in the last few months — the world-famous momager was even there when Sánchez celebrated her engagement to Jeff Bezos in August.

Jenner, 67, described it as the "best weekend ever" in a social media post at the time.

The month prior, Sánchez attended a dinner with Kardashian, Nicky Hilton and her husband James Rothschild at New York’s Mercer Hotel. Additionally, Sánchez and Jenner connected for the last leg of Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles in September, which Sánchez said “was crazy fun.”

Kardashian and Jenner were also on hand when Sánchez gave a heartfelt speech at This Is About Humanity’s 5th Anniversary Soirée, where she was honored for her philanthropy.

During her speech for the organization, which focuses on separated families at the U.S. and Mexico border, Sánchez made sure to thank a number of people in the room, including her significant other.

"I want to thank each and every one of you for coming out here today, and I want to thank you all for supporting This is About Humanity," Sánchez told the crowd. "Thank you, and Jeff, I just want to say thank you for inspiring me to go out into the world and make a difference."
