In a twist of fate, the couple did not fall in love at first sight. Robinson told Broadway Buzz that the beginning of their relationship "was not a romantic thing at all." "In all honesty, it was nothing more than a human connection like, 'Wow, I need to be around this guy all the time.' After the show, we kept in touch, and not long after that, we began dating."
Nicolette said, "We didn't know if the first date was going to be the first date, but it ended up being the first date. None of us were stating that it was a date, but then it for sure was a date when he kissed me at the end of the night, and the rest, as they say, is history!"

Having to watch Nicolette give birth to these children... Simply put, some of the most courageous deeds I've ever seen in person, and I was just a foot away," the father of two wrote. "I have no words to express how much I adore you, sweetheart. Our tiny family is so happy that we are bursting at the seams! And gratitude. More life!"
