Nick and Tess Holliday started talking to each other on Tumblr in 2012. He was impressed by Tess Holliday’s first naked shoot and reached out to her and wrote, “I love how you inspire other women.”

They chatted online for around seven months before Nick, who was in Brisbane at the time, went to the United States to meet her.

Tess revealed, “I was like, this guy’s never going to give me a chance in hell because he’s so hot. Because I’ve never really had good-looking boyfriends before. My friends would always tell me, ‘There’s no way you’re going to get a nice guy and a hot guy – you’re fat, you need to settle for one or the other.’ I told them, I deserve both.”

In an interview, Nick said that although he was initially attracted to Tess’ beauty, he was more drawn in by her confidence and body-positive mindset.

In April 2015, Nick moved from Australia to Los Angeles to be with the love of his life! They were supposed to get married in 2015 but couldn’t because Tess’ mother was dealing with personal problems.
