Nicholas James and Tika Sumpter’s Relationship

Nicholas James, also known as Nicholas James Muscarella, is a television and film actor, who is now engaged to gorgeous American actress, Tika Sumpter. While the two were dating, they tried to keep a lid on their relationship in the media for a long time.

It was only after Tika Sumpter’s visible pregnancy last year that she was compelled to reveal the name of the mystery man in her life. The actress confessed that she was in love with The Haves and the Have Nots costar, Nicholas James and that he was indeed the father of her baby!

Nicholas James and Tika Sumpter’s baby girl has been a binding force in their relationship and is known to keep the love blooming between the couple.

How They Met and The Proposal 

Nicholas James and Tika Sumpter met in a way that most American actors do. They first crossed paths while shooting for the Oprah Winfrey Network primetime soap opera, The Haves and the Have Nots.

Sumpter mentioned in an interview that she was smitten by James at first sight and was compelled to get to know him better immediately! The couple hit it off in no time and soon became pregnant with their daughter, Ella-Loren.

After Sumpter delivered the baby girl, James, who apparently “couldn’t hold it within him any longer,” proposed to her in the most beautiful manner over holidays. He made Sumpter do a quick gift-hunt in the house, before popping the question with a hand-written letter that he delivered through their daughter’s tiny hands!

Since then, the duo is going strong and will hopefully marry each other soon enough!

Nicholas James’s Personal and Professional Life

Although Tika Sumpter is a well-known name in the television world, some may think that her soon-to-be-husband isn’t as successful. However, James is popular in the industry and has several shows and movies to his credit.

James was seen on TV shows like The Haves and the Have Nots and NCIS: New Orleans, where he played strong character roles. Nicholas James’ movies such as Fired Up! and Prom Night also prove his caliber as an actor, although they haven’t been hugely famous at the box office.
