The reality star maintains he looked at more than 30 houses, and that he and son Hudson ‘immediately connected with it ‘when he took a tour of it back in February. But the property went off the market before he could make an offer.
‘I was heartbroken when it was no longer available, and I kept going into other houses comparing it to the one I loved,’ he explained before revealing how he came up with the nickname.
‘I began calling it the Temple House, because it feels like a temple for me. So I kept saying to my realtor, “It’s nice, but it’s not the Temple House.” And then out of the blue, the seller just came back and was like, “Okay. You can buy the house.”‘
