Though the Kardashian-Jenner clan seemingly bare all on their reality TV show, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," there are some things about Kris and Bruce Jenner's marriage not even the most avid fans know.

Kris Jenner spoke to HuffPost Weddings about her relationship, offering insight into how the couple has stayed strong for nearly 21 years. Below, 10 things you might not know about the Jenners' relationship and their big family's life.

1. Bruce ordered meatloaf the first night they met.

"I thought, 'I love this guy, he has meatloaf and mashies.' It was fabulous."

2. The proposal was a total surprise.

"We were at a restaurant and he just dropped to a knee. We had been house-hunting all day and we were thinking about moving in together, and then I thought to myself, driving to the restaurant that we were going to, 'I must be out of my mind that we're house-hunting. We're not even married, we're not even engaged!' And that night he just busted out a move. He said, 'I am totally in love with you and would you marry me?' I was very surprised."

3. He didn't propose with a ring.

"You know when I got a ring? A few months ago in Bora Bora. I got my ring for my twentieth anniversary. We'd only known each other a few months [when we got engaged] and I don't think he really knew what my taste was. I'm really kind of picky about that stuff, in case you hadn't noticed. I'm very specific and he knew how anal I was. I'm kind of crazy that way."

4. Kris and her ex-husband Robert Kardashian were still best friends when Kris met Bruce; luckily the two men got along well.

"We [Robert and I] remained really, really close and had a really great parenting style with our kids. Then Bruce became really good friends with Robert, they would play golf together, so we've always had a one big happy family kind of a relationship. So with Bruce, everyone loves Bruce. When you get married to me, I had four kids at the time, so you've got to get married to the kids. So I had the kids and I had an ex-husband. He got everyone's stamp of approval. Bruce was delicious."

5. Kris and Bruce ride motorcycles together.

"We both have our own motorcycles, no one knows that ... When you're under that helmet nobody really knows who you are, so it's kind of fun.

Bruce has been into motorcycles since he won the Olympics ... I got him a Harley when we first got married, as a surprise. He loves Harleys, so I got him another one for Valentine's Day a few years ago. And then he surprised me with a pink Vespa a couple years ago. He bought me my first Harley in the 90's, he bought me a Harley Sportster. I got on it and we were driving, it was Christmas Day, and we were driving down Sunset Blvd. and I crashed my motorcycle on Sunset. I stopped at a red light and the bike stalled and I didn't know what to do so I jumped off and left the bike; the bike just fell over. That was the last time I rode my Harley. It scared me to death!"

6. They got married in a friend's backyard.

"It was a very intimate, small wedding ... I had such a big wedding the first time and we just really wanted close family and friends [the second time]. "

7. The worst argument they've ever had was over a toy helicopter.

"One time he put a helicopter in the back of one of my cars. It was so hot and he closed the trunk and the entire car caught on fire. That was our worst fight. I was like, 'Get your helicopters out of my life!'"

8. Kris doesn't give her daughters love advice.

"I try to stay out of it because I figure, you can't win with that. The heart knows what the heart wants ... I'm more advice-worthy when it comes to business relationship with them ... If they want to talk about somebody they're dating, or some situation they're having with a boyfriend or a husband, then I'm always here to listen and give my two cents."

9. A friend introduced Kris to Zestra, a new women's arousal product that she endorses, and she loved it right away.

"When you're married long-term you need to figure out things to do to spice up your relationship ... I had a friend who introduced me to Zestra. Guys are always talking about sex, and they've always had help in the bedroom. When I heard about this [product] I was like, 'Wow, there's something for women too.'"

10. One year, each of their six children attended a different school.

"Everybody needed to get there on time ... It was a big [challenge]."
