- After the proposal of a lifetime, Nick Viall and his fiancee are headed to the City of Angels! Nick’s lucky lady revealed that she is ready to pack her things and start a life with him in LA — a place they’ve both never lived before! Find out what’s next for the newly engaged couple!
Nick Viall, 36, and Vanessa Grimaldi, 29, are The Bachelor‘s latest engaged couple, and they dished the details on their future plans when they appeared as a couple for the first time since the show’s finale on March 13. And, Nick and Vanessa are moving to LA! “We’re leaning towards the USA,” Nick said when Chris asked if they ever compromised on a place to plant their roots.
Although the topic has been a huge issue for them throughout the season, Vanessa revealed that their decision to move to LA “wasn’t an issue.” She even admitted that she actually would be “OK” coming to the states. The Montreal native is super excited to move because she’s actually putting together a charity for people living with disabilities, so she plans to “bring a piece of Montreal” with her to the U.S. Amazing!
Vanessa may have gotten the final rose, but she did admit that things haven’t been that easy. “I’m not going to sugarcoat things, some days are tougher than others,” she said of her relationship with Nick since the show wrapped. “There were moments where I had to understand Nick The Bachelor and Nick the guy I was dating. It was hard sometimes to separate the two… I love him and we love each other, but there have been days that have been difficult.” Wow.
Speaking of not easy… “There were moments where I wanted him to be more empathetic towards my feelings,” she admitted. However, “We love each other and we want to make it work. We’re very excited about the future,” Vanessa gushed.
SO how are Nick and Vanessa right now? — “We’ve been very busy,” Vanessa said. “I’m just excited to be in the same car together. We’re a team… we get stronger as the days go on. I’m excited. At the end of the day we love each other, even when things get hard we’re not going to quit.” So cute!
Will Nick and Vanessa get married? — Well, “We’re taking baby steps,” she said. “I think we’re still in the process of getting to know each other. But we’re still optimistic about what the future holds.” Hmm…
Nick’s proposal to Vanessa was absolutely stunning. He got down on one knee in Finland and slipped a beautiful Neil Lane diamond on her finger. The both of them were completely consumed with emotions and they cried to each other as they pledged their love for one another.
Although it ended in a fairytale, it’s certainly been a wild ride for Nick and Vanessa throughout season 21 of The Bachelor. While they had instant chemistry from day one, Vanessa was not been shy about her reservations about Nick and the details of life together after the cameras stopped rolling. In the finale, Vanessa didn’t seem willing to uproot her life and leave Canada, so that life compromise was one of her biggest concerns. So, we’re happy to hear that they’ve found a way to make things work.
It was definitely a rocky finale for Nick and Vanessa because of her worries about their relationship. Not to mention, she was longing for the validation that Nick loved her, but, he was adamant, per usual, not to reveal too much. It was a complete shock when he turned Raven Gates down, as she was the first to come out of the limo. His time with her, especially in the finale, was close to perfect! Nick definitely threw us for a loop when he told her that his heart was “somewhere else.”
We’ll have to wait and see if Nick and Vanessa drop anymore steamy details about their future in the coming weeks since they’ll be on a huge press tour to dish all about the finale!
