The 22-year-old graduate lives with the 68-year-old reality star and though they "share a life together", the blonde beauty - who works as the Executive Director of the Caitlyn Jenner Foundation - insists they don't have a "romantic relationship".

Speaking on 'The Hidden Truth with Jim Breslo', she said: "I wouldn't describe it as a romantic relationship.

"I would describe our relationship as we're partners, we're business partners.

"We have so much in common; we see the world so similarly and we both are such a good match for each because we challenge each other.

"She challenges me in so many ways, has allowed me to grow in so many ways and I hope I challenge her to grow and I think because we share so many of the same passions and views, it's just a great match, a great partnership."

But Sophia insists neither she nor the 'I Am Cait' star - who fathered six children before her transition - feel the need to label their bond.

She added: "I don't think we need to talk about, 'Is it romantic or not?'.

"We're partners in everything we do, we're inseparable, we're business partners, we live together, we share a dog, we share family, we share a life together.

"As far as caving into the media and having one of us label it as something, we're not gonna do that."

Sophia also refuses to call the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star her "girlfriend".

Asked if she had ever dated another transgender person, she said: "I would not say we're dating. I would back up, I would say we are partners. I would not use the word 'girlfriend,' I would not use the word 'dating.' We're partners."

Despite the 46-year age gap between them, Sophia and Caitlyn "don't feel that it's there" because they are so similar.

She said: "[The age gap is] there, but we don't feel that it's there.

"I see we are two souls that are a fantastic match for one another and I feel that we're so blessed to have found each other and to be so supportive of one another in everything that we do. I feel beyond blessed that we've been able to keep it going for the time we've been able to keep it going. I don't think of the age difference as anything... for us, it's not even a factor."

A few months ago, the former Olympian admitted she was "very close" to Sophia but didn't want to "get into" the nature of their relationship.

She simply said: "We do a lot of things together. We're kind of inseparable. We're the best of friends."
