HGTV would be nothing without the heroes who keep the network going.

Although we tune in for the fabulous renovations, we can’t help but fall in love with the rehabbers who put their heart and souls into their work. One of the many reality TV renovators to join HGTV’s roster is Small Town Potential host Kristin Leitheuser.

Kristin Leitheuser isn’t married with kids, but she isn’t single, either. Meet her partner, Davina Thomasula.

On paper, Kristin and Davina are single. However, IRL, the reality stars have a real connection.

In addition to selling homes, Davina also runs a small bar in Hudson N.Y. called Goodnight Kenny, which has amassed more than a few five-star reviews on Google since it opened.

Per Kristin’s Instagram, the HGTV stars have been together for several years now. In a February 2019 post, Kristin penned a sweet message to her longtime girlfriend on her birthday.

“Happy Birthday my love,” she started her post. “You are the hardest working individual I know and deserve nothing but the best every day — not just this special day.”

“I love you with all my heart. I believe in you and will be by your side for as long as you will have me,” Kristin continued. Her caption also confirmed that the couple had been dating for five years at that time. According to our math, that means they’ll celebrate their 10th anniversary in 2024.

Who is Kristin Lietheuser’s dad? Everything we know about Donald Leitheuser.

It isn’t hard to tell that Kristin and her father have a pretty close-knit relationship. Donald makes frequent appearances on her feed and even has an Instagram (@donaldleitheuser) of his own where fans can keep up with him.

Much like his daughter, Donald had a pretty lucrative career as a contractor. With more than four decades of experience, he’s able to school Kristin on tricks of the trade that most experts couldn’t.

He and his wife, Bonnie, have been married for more than 34 years as of June 2022.

You can catch Kristin, her family, and Davina on episodes of Small Town Potential, airing Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on HGTV.
