Our latest update on My 600 Lb Life Nikki Webster now sees a number of big changes for the Season 4 participant. The biggest of all? Since her most recent episode aired, Nikki tied the knot in a lovely ceremony with her boyfriend Marcus!
Followers of Nikki’s weight loss journey will recall Marcus from his appearance in her Where Are They Now? episode. Nikki went on a date with Marcus in that episode. It was her first date in years.
And it left Nikki thinking about the possibility of real romance for the first time in just as long.
My 600 Lb Life Nikki Webster now: Happiness, harmony, and health
Nikki did caution herself to take things slowly during her first date with Marcus. But the pair had obvious chemistry.
And they look so happy as a married couple that you can’t help but be glad they let passion run away with them 🙂
(One quick side note: Nikki is actually the third My 600 Lb Life cast member to get married in recent years. The infamous Steven Assanti also got married, not too long after Nikki. And Chay Guillory said “I do” not long after that.)
In fact, it’s actually kind of amusing to go back and watch the scene between Nikki and Marcus. Knowing what happened, and how quickly it happened, you can’t help but wonder how well they connected before the cameras started rolling.
“I don’t know where things are gonna go with Marc,” Nikki said, in the episode. “But the things that I’m feeling from [Marcus] — the love and affection I feel from him — that’s what I want.”
“Things have been going really well between us, and I like him a lot,” Nikki went on. “He’s a really good guy, and I have a lot of fun when I’m with him.
“And the more time we spend together, the more I can see the possibility of a future between us. And that alone is incredible to even be able to think.”
How long has Nikki Webster been married?
But Nikki didn’t just think about a life together with Marcus. Filming for her Where Are They Now? episode appears to have wrapped in early 2017. Over the next few months, Nikki and Marcus fell in love and got engaged.
And by late December of 2017, the two were married.
Nikki has shared a veritable bevy of her wedding photos on social media. Unfortunately, it looks like embedding for the photos is turned off. But you can view them in all their glory on Nikki’s Facebook page.
Almost as charming as the photos themselves was Nikki’s post accompanying them. “I’m not dead,” she wrote, after a months-long absence. “I just took a much needed break from the Facebook page.”
Then, as an afterthought, Nikki dropped the wedding bombshell. “P.S. oh yeah… I kind of got married,” Nikki added. “He’s the absolute best, and I honestly couldn’t be more happy…It’s been a busy few months. 😬😆
What we can embed, however, are a couple more photos of the happy couple looking head-over-heels in love. The first one features a beaming Nikki and Marcus with their wedding certificate:
And the second is of Nikki and Marcus in what looks like the immediate, joyful aftermath of the wedding itself.
*Huge* congratulations to Nikki on finding love! To Nikki and Marcus on their marriage! And one more time to Nikki for her continued weight loss success!
