Reggie Bush was the biggest name in college football when he carried the ball for the USC Trojans. The running back won a Heisman Trophy, a BCS National Championship and twice earned All-America selections in Los Angeles.
The NFL player won a Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints, where he was rudely welcomed to the league by a hit he thought he died on. He spent time with the Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers and Buffalo Bills over his 11-year career.
Off the field, Bush was a star in his own right. He’s dated Amber Rose, country singer Jessie James and singer Melissa Molinaro. And who could forget his relationship with mega-celebrity Kim Kardashian?
The power couple didn’t last long, but what’s interesting is that Reggie Bush moved on by dating and marrying Kim K’s doppelgänger.
Reggie Bush’s Relationship With Kim Kardashian
Bush’s former college teammate Matt Leinart reportedly introduced Bush and Kardashian to each other at the 2007 ESPY Awards.
“We met at the  ESPY Awards,” Kim told Access Online. “My stepdad, Bruce, and I were walking to our seats and Matt called my name. When I went over, he was sitting with Reggie…. Matt introduced me to the love of my life and we will always be grateful.”
The duo took Hollywood by storm and dated for three years, becoming one of the hottest celeb couples in the world. It wasn’t until 2009 and 2010 that things turned south for them.
In 2009, they split up and reconnected months later. By 2010, they’d officially parted ways for good.
US Weekly reported that the former football player couldn’t handle the fact that she was becoming famous and traveling the world as a reality TV star. Keeping Up With the Kardashians debuted in 2007 and has garnered millions of viewers and fans since then for the Kardashian and Jenner families, which includes Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian as well as Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Kardashian then jumped to the NBA and married Kris Humphries for 72 days before Kanye West put a ring on her finger in 2014. She and the rapper and producer are still together and have four kids now.
Who Is Reggie Bush’s Wife Lilit Avagyan?
Bush apparently was infatuated with Kim’s looks, because he married someone who looks identical to her.
Meet Lilit Avagyan, who now goes by Lilit Bush. She was born in 1987 and hails from Armenia. She’s a dancer that has attracted almost 200,000 followers to her Instagram account. Lilit often posts videos of her working out and photos of her incredible physique and her family on social media.
Back in 2010, she won the Rising Star Open dance competition in Florida. She also showed off her skills on “Dancing With the Stars” during season 6 of the popular show.
Oh, and we can’t ignore the fact that Lilit could be Kim Kardashian’s stunt double. Everything from her body and face to her Armenian heritage screams Kardashian.
Even actress Jennifer Lawrence once asked Kardashian on Jimmy Kimmel Live about Bush’s apparent love for Armenian women, and the result was pretty funny.
“This is going to be fun,” she said.
They Got Married in 2014, And a Jenner Attended
Lilit took Reggie’s last name in July 2014, when the two eloped in San Diego.
What was interesting about the event is that Brody Jenner, who is Kim’s stepbrother and declined to attend his stepsister’s most recent wedding, showed face and took a picture with Reggie during his big day.
“It’s kinda ridiculous that everybody’s making such a big deal out of it,” he told Us Weekly. “Reggie’s been a friend of mine for a very long time so I went to his wedding. It’s all good.”
They Have Three Children Together
Reggie and Lilit have three children together.
They welcomed their first kid, daughter Briseis, in 2013. Some tweets have pointed out that she looks a whole lot like Kim and Kanye’s daughter, North West.
They also have two sons together. She gave birth to Uriah in 2015 and Agyemang in 2017. Reggie has explained that he loves fatherhood since retiring from the NFL in 2017.
“I’ve been able to enjoy more time with our family and just being able to do things that I normally wouldn’t be able to be here for,” the former NFL star told PEOPLE Magazine during the coronavirus pandemic. “For 20-plus years, most of my time was devoted to a single sport. Now I get an opportunity to be home, and to find a new passion and keep my focus on top of my family.”
Reggie Bush seems happy with his wife and kids. So does Kim Kardashian. You know what? Good for them. But it’s still odd how much the two women look like each other.
