Nate Mitchell formed a solid connection with Gabby Windey on this season of The Bachelorette, but she eliminated him when she realized that she wasn’t ready to be a stepmom to his daughter. Right around the time that episode aired, Reality Steve published allegations from two former girlfriends about Nate. Ahead of Nate’s expected return to the show on the Men Tell All special, learn more about him below.

1. Nate Is A Dad

Nate revealed on the July 18 episode of The Bachelorette that he is a father to the “most amazing baby girl.” He got emotional while talking about leaving her to be on the show. However, he knew it was something important that he had to talk to Gabby about. It ended up being his downfall, as Gabby eventually realized she was not ready to be a mom yet. She sent Nate home when she realized that they were in two separate places in their lives.
