Nick Viall Wouldn't Be with Girlfriend Natalie Joy If He Didn't Think Marriage Was 'Possible'
Nick Viall continues to talk about his girlfriend Natalie Joy.
During an appearance on Dear Media's Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, the former Bachelor, 40, was asked if he could imagine marrying Joy.
"I wouldn't be in a relationship with her if I didn't think it was possible, you know?" he answered. "She's the first person I called my girlfriend in a long, long time without television."
The reality star said that as he got older, he became "more special" and "more mindful" of what he was looking for in a romantic partner, which makes his pairing with Joy even more special.
"For me personally, wanting to call her my girlfriend was a pretty big step," he said. "So I'd say that's a good sign."

Viall first appeared on Andi Dorfman's 2014 season of The Bachelorette and returned for the 2015 season of Kaitlyn Bristowe. He was second both times.
After a stint at Bachelor in Paradise, Viall was named the next Bachelor in 2017. His season ended when he became engaged to Vanessa Grimaldi; the two named it five months later.
Lately he has become more open about his relationship with Joy and posts a lot with her on his social media. The couple were silent for several months before officially going to Instagram in January. "She's great to him," a source told PEOPLE at the time.
In May, the couple made their red carpet debut at the 2021 MTV Movie and TV Awards: Unscripted.

Previously during the episode Not Skinny But Not Fat, he addressed why he hasn't dated anyone in the Bachelor franchise since he split from Grimaldi, 33.
"After Vanessa and I broke up, I simply made a conscious decision not to associate in any way, romantic or otherwise, with anyone at Bachelor Nation," he said.
"Some people hang out and say, 'Oh, I think we should meet' and I say, 'Listen, you seem great, but I literally don't go out with anyone in Bachelor Nation'" continued. "If I had met someone I legitimately thought we could legitimately date, I would have reconsidered, but I wouldn't like it, have some kind of date, or just go on a casual date or something like that.
