Nathan and Nico met on January 21, 2021, in that most romantic of ways: a dating website. Despite initial hesitation because of a difference in interests, they quickly found out that opposites do, indeed, attract, and hit it off immediately on their first date, watching Halloween (1978) and largely ignoring Halloween (2018). It didn't take long for Nathan and Nico to start seeing the future in each other, and just a few months after they met, Nico realized they were in love when they saw Nathan frantically and tenderly taking care of all the animals Nathan had under their care. They told each other immediately and never looked back. On March 9, 2022, Nathan's secret plans came to fruition when he proposed to Nico at their favorite place in the world: The McKittrick Hotel. In starting their family, Nathan and Nico always want to remember where their lifelong commitment began, and so are choosing a new family name: McKittrick.
