The beautiful lady got an enigmatic ring during their trip to the Playa Guiones beach in Costa Rica. As someone who often felt she wasn’t worthy of love, Alex was taken aback when Nick got down on a knee. In the end, she was glad that he professed and got to share the moment with her loved ones.
It was her soon-to-be husband, Nick, who taught her what love is, and she dubbed him the “Brightest North Star.”
The duo really did not plan on doing their full engagement photo shoot. They had a rather unique way of making memories. Alex just grabbed Nick for some snaps and took some quick photographs in between shoots: a lovely way to treasure moments with your adored ones.

Nick’s Contributions Toward His Companies
Alex’s significant other was quite a miracle worker and helped improve companies wherever he went. At T-Mobile, he joined at a time when the company was losing millions of users a year. He was part of a senior leadership team that managed to grow users from 33 million to 120 million in a few years.
During his time at Quicksilver, he had the tough task of making customers he had never met before redundant. The company was going through bankruptcy at the time. The survival of the company depended on him and he delivered.
His current challenge is at Google, which he joined months before the pandemic. It is safe to say he is doing a great job there as well.
Nick’s Journey From Rugby To Marketing
During the 90s, the experienced marketing professional was a rugby player. In 1998, he was an aspiring athlete hoping to make it big as a player in the London Irish Rugby Football Club. However, fate intervened, and injuries stopped him from pursuing the path.
Nonetheless, his time at the club and interaction with his coach improved his life. His coach, Dr Brendan Venter, was a GP and former World Cup winner with South Africa. He taught him the importance of radical inclusion and how to turn adversity into opportunity.
Nick temporarily paralyzed his arm and felt he couldn’t do anything. But, being an eternal optimist, he wanted to do something related to sports even if he couldn’t play it. So, he got an internship at a media agency, where he worked on sports sponsorships and learned about analytics.
As his arm started healing, he got to play for the team. Despite that, whenever he would get free time in the afternoon, he would learn about media buying and planning from Nigel Morris at Dentsu. Morris allowed him to come to the agency and work on the Adidas account for three hours.
Adidas was also a sponsor of London Irish at the time, and they really liked his work. So, they invited him to work with the marketing team in Amsterdam. Nick was grateful for all the times he got to see legends like Muhammad Ali and Dick Fosbury during his time at the company.
Proud Father Of Two Children
Alongside a blossoming love life, Nick has a daughter and son from his previous relationship. Despite his busy job, he always makes time for his little ones and hangs out with them often. He has posted about them on his social media account.
From the looks of it, Nick’s son loves snowboarding as much as him. He even admitted that his little boy was already a better boarder than him. Nick’s kids are also close with his girlfriend, Alex. They even shared a heartfelt hug with her when the pair got engaged.
Here is a dirty little secret. Well, Nick has no sense of smell, and Alex has Irritable Bowel Syndrome, an intestinal disorder. For a while, she won the lottery. But, on a trip to Mexico, her beau’s kids found out and were teasing the TV host for the smell.
The youngsters hilariously tormented her with funny quips like “Ew. What’s that smell? It looks like someone died in here.”
