Nick and Natalie became Instagram official in January 2021 when Natalie appeared in a video on Nick’s social media story. Nick was wearing goggles and playing a virtual reality game when Natalie tried to give him a kiss.

The couple were first linked to one another in 2019 but rumors regarding their romance did not heat up until 2020.

On an episode of his podcast, The Viall Files, Nick explained the two connected after Natalie messaged him on Instagram.

“I have those moments of gratitude and thankfulness,” he said. “There’s moments where I’m like, ‘You’re really great and I’m really happy you’re a part of my life.'”

“Between the two of us, I am easily the most dramatic. I’m the drama queen,” he added of their relationship. “She is a voice of reason, which is a breath of fresh air.”

Nick’s past romances

Before Nick began dating Natalie, he had several different relationships as he moved around the shows within Bachelor Nation.

Nick joined the franchise in 2014 when he fell in love with Andi Dorfman, the Bachelorette star. Their relationship ended when she sent him home before the final rose ceremony.

One year later, Nick appeared on The Bachelorette yet again alongside Kaitlyn Bristowe. She sent him home ahead of his plans to propose.

Nick appeared on Bachelor In Paradise, where he dated Jennifer Saviano. He helmed his own season of The Bachelor in 2017, where he put a ring on it with Vanessa Grimaldi. The couple’s engagement ended less than one year later.

Fans appeared to be supportive of the pairing.

“So great you are all so close! I wanna join the next date night! Promise I’m cool,” wrote one fan.

A second admirer penned, “She looks like she could be your sister!!”
