Lauren Conrad talked to Shape magazine about her hot boyfriend, TV star Kyle Howard, and joked out loud that she has given a name to the extra pounds she gained during the relationship.

“I call it the ‘boyfriend layer’,” she says. “We were having more romantic dinners out, and I was exercising less.” Her solution? Working out with her ‘My Boys‘ main squeeze. “I just ask Kyle, ‘You feel like working out?’ It’s more fun than hitting the gym alone,” she says, adding that they are an outdoorsie couple, and their activities include “tennis, bike riding, kayaking, stand-up surfing, hiking in the canyons around L.A.”

We think she looks fantastic, and no sign of a boyfriend layer!

The two have been dating since 2008, but they have generally chosen to keep the media out of their relationship until recently.
