Since becoming a couple in 2014, Antonio and Nicole have proven to be nearly inseparable. “I’m very happy to be with her and I appreciate she isn’t in my industry. I’ve been married to two actresses in the past and it’s been fine but it’s also more complicated. She’s shocked by everything that happens in my life and discovers many things because she sees things as an outsider, and she lives it with fascination,” he said in an interview.
