After celebrating her new Stuart Weitzman campaign in New York City on Tuesday night, Kendall Jenner headed to Penn Station to catch a train to Philadelphia, where her boyfriend Ben Simmons plays basketball for the 76ers.

Jenner, 22, changed out of her blazer dress and heels into jeans and sneakers for the trip.

Jenner and Simmons, 22, were first linked last spring, but they appeared to cool things off going into the fall before she started popping up at his games again, starting in November.

Since then, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has frequently been photographed cheering him on, often alongside the athlete’s mom Julie.

Though Jenner is notoriously tight-lipped about her romantic life, she publicly confirmed her relationship with Simmons for the first time while appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this month.

After asking Jenner about her love of basketball, host Ellen DeGeneres pulled up a photo of the model sitting courtside at one of the NBA player’s games.

“See there you are, but there’s a guy in front of you, I can hardly see you,” DeGeneres joked, referring to Simmons. “Who’s that guy in the way?”

“I’m not so sure,” Jenner said with a laugh.

“So obviously you’re dating this guy who’s on the 76ers,” DeGeneres continued. “How long have you been dating him?”

“For a bit now,” said Jenner, smiling.

And that might be all the details Jenner will offer for now: A source told PEOPLE last year that she’s “very protective” of her relationship with Simmons.

“She’s being very private about her relationship with Ben,” the source said. “Kendall’s really different from her sisters in that sense. She honestly doesn’t want people talking about who she’s dating and is very protective of her personal life.”
