Notable Bachelor Nation stars flooded Nick’s comments section with supportive messages. “There you go dude!!! Pumped for you brother,” Season 20 Bachelor Ben Higgins enthused.
“Love y’all,” Demi Burnett wrote, while Chris Bukowksi added, “Happy for you pal.”
Emily Ferguson noted how sexy a pair Nick and Natalie make. “What a hot couple!!!”
Meanwhile, Nick’s ex-fiancée, Vanessa Grimaldi — who won his heart on “The Bachelor” in 2017 — gave her seal of approval, writing, “Ppprrreeeettttyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
The couple first appeared on social media together in a video shared on Natalie’s Story in January. The video showed Natalie trying to kiss Nick as he played a virtual-reality video game.
“You’re freaking me out,” the “Viall Files” podcast host said, as he couldn’t see Natalie through his goggles but could sense that she was close by.
Nick was first linked to Natalie in 2019. In September 2020, Natalie revealed that she’s the “happiest I’ve eva been” in an Instagram post.
Prior to dating Natalie, Nick pursued love within the Bachelor franchise. He appeared on “The Bachelorette” in 2014 to compete for Andi Dorfman’s final rose but ended Season 10 as the runner-up to Josh Murray. He was a runner-up again on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s Season 11 in 2015, which he joined in Week 4.
Nick then formed a connection with Jennifer Saviano during 2016’s Season 3 of “Bachelor in Paradise” but called it quits with her before leaving the summer series. Though he proposed to Vanessa following the end of his journey as the Season 21 Bachelor, the duo broke up months later in August 2017.
