The former Bachelor revealed how he met Natalie and started dating, despite his initial hesitance.

“She slid into my DMs. It was very romantic,” he said on the “Viall Files” podcast. “We kind of kept hanging out, and she finally got to a point where she was like, ‘I want to date,’ and I was kind of like, ‘I don’t know.’ She was just like, ‘OK, this is what I want. It’s fine, no big deal, but I’m gonna go do my thing,’ and she did and I was like, ‘What?!’ … She went and showed me exactly what I’d be missing.”

“I’m very grateful for the relationship I have with Natalie,” he told Us Weekly. “I’m really excited [about] the direction it’s going and the pace in which it’s going.”

Congratulations to the new parents!
