Inside Natalie Nunn and Husband Jacob Payne’s Relationship: The Ups and Downs in Their Marriage
Natalie Nunn, born Natalie Tynika Nunn, is a renowned reality TV star-turned-model and fashion entrepreneur best known for her appearance in the record-breaking fourth season of Oxygen's Bad Girls Club in 2009.
She subsequently went on to star in several reality TV shows, including spinoffs of the Oxygen hit series.
Besides, the 36-year-old star is also a married woman. She has been married to her husband, Jacob Payne, since May 2012. And together, they share a daughter, Journey Ruth Payne, born on April 26, 2017.
Over the years, Nunn's personal life has gone through a topsy-turvy emotional journey due to various reasons, including getting married, suffering a miscarriage, and eventually becoming a mother.
Natalie Nunn and Her Husband Jacob Payne Met at a Club
Before proceeding into the fashion entrepreneur's emotional journey of becoming a mom, let's dive into the details of how her love story with her husband kick-started.
Nunn and Payne reportedly first met each other while making an appearance at a club in Detroit in 2011. During a 2012 interview, she recalled spotting Payne at the club with some of his friends and falling in love with him at first sight.
"He was so charming and handsome, I fell in love at first sight. He then came to LA to visit me and never went back," she told WeTV.
A few months later, Payne, a football player from Michigan, made the trip down to Los Angeles to visit his then-girlfriend Nunn, and surprisingly, he never went back home. The football player reportedly had his personal things shipped to him in LA, where he began a new life with the reality TV star.
In April 2012, the 1990-born football player went down on his knees and proposed to the Celebrity Big Brother alum during a vacation trip to the island of Jamaica in Negril.
Their wedding followed just a month later, as they tied the knot at a private ceremony that took place at a friend's mansion in Topanga Canyon, California.
Natalie Nunn’s Emotional Journey of Becoming a Mom
The couple went through a great deal after they got married and planned to welcome their first baby. In November 2014, Nunn confirmed that she was pregnant with their first baby.
But in 2015, Nunn was spotted performing a rigorous gym session, which made fans speculate that she had previously faked her pregnancy to gain publicity. However, she was quick to clarify the speculations, as she revealed that she had suffered a painful miscarriage during an interview with Oxygen.
She said that she chose to keep the miscarriage private, and even though the experience was heartbreaking, she revealed that the couple was trying to get pregnant again.
Yes, we are moving forward and doing things differently a second time. We are trying for a due date this year. This time, we're hoping for twins!
Happily for the couple, they became pregnant, and they announced they were expecting a baby girl in November 2016. They eventually welcomed their first child, Journey Ruth, in April next year.
Natalie Nunn Was Accused of Cheating
Nunn and Payne hit the rock when the reality star was accused of cheating on her husband in 2019.
Her Celebrity Big Brother co-star Chloe Ayling alleged that she was involved in a threesome with Dan Osbourne and Nunn, which happened in 2018 after a night of heavy drinking in London.
Things started getting worse when Payne was spotted moving his things out of their home on December 6, 2019, even though Osbourne and Nunn denied Ayling's claims.
Some days later, he was seen moving out of their home and walking around London alone without his wedding ring.
That said, the couple apparently sorted out their differences, as they were spotted showing some PDA on the streets of London a week later. Since then, their marriage has apparently gained strength.
