Nicely, that is fairly gross. Not since Billy Ray Cyrus has a cutesy story about assembly and falling in love felt so inadvertently sketchy…

On the one hand we are able to see it being seen as an attractive story of soul mates discovering each other. On the opposite, effectively… there’s the age hole that makes it really feel quite a bit ickier. There’s a full 18 years between Nick and Natalie, which means he’s sufficiently old to be her dad.

The couple appeared on Wednesday’s episode of The Squeeze podcast to speak about their relationship — and the minor controversy surrounding it. Nick admitted that when he first met Natalie in 2019 — when she would have been simply 21 years outdated — she appeared so younger to him he made positive to see some authorized identification! He recalled:
“We began messaging, and I carded her.”
It wasn’t a joke! She confirmed this actually occurred, saying:
“He was like, ‘I need to see your ID.’”
Simply so we’re all on the identical web page right here — he was about 39 on the time however couldn’t make certain whether or not this woman he was taking a look at was over 18 years outdated or not. He was apprehensive about her being “jailbait.” That’s tousled.
He went on to say that though she proved she wasn’t a minor, he did nonetheless inform her they “would by no means date” as a result of “the age for me was one thing I used to be self aware about.”
Does he imply it felt dangerous in his conscience? Or that he was apprehensive about how it might search for him, a celeb, to be relationship such a youthful lady? As a result of “self-conscious” implies the latter greater than the previous… Anyway, he wasn’t too self-conscious, clearly. They began relationship in 2020, and the remainder is historical past. He remembers:
“She slid into my DMs. We messaged for a few weeks. We met up in New York. I believe we had been each considering the opposite individual was just a little loopy. We type of each knew we’d find yourself spending the weekend collectively. I believe we had been each fairly guarded.”
The best way Natalie tells it, she knew they had been meant to be from soar avenue, earlier than they had been ever even an merchandise:
“I knew after that weekend, I used to be like, ‘I’m going to spend the remainder of my life with this man.’ And I knew it and he didn’t. So I used to be like, ‘I’m simply going to hold on as a result of he’ll come round.’ So I requested him a number of instances so far me.”
It seems like Nick was nonetheless “self-conscious” even after spending a weekend with Natalie! Oops! Nicely, all of it labored out for them anyway — clearly, since they’re getting hitched now.
However how does the now-24-year-old surgical technologist really feel about how web commenters react to their age hole? That also hurts apparently:
“It’s undoubtedly bizarre to have so many individuals provide you with their opinions… DMs of imply feedback about [how] I’m a ‘baby bride’ … simply horrible, horrible issues individuals would name me.”
Frankly, it seems like Nick was a type of judgy individuals, too! However he acquired over it!
