Thom Evans has opened up about his flourishing romance with Nicole Scherzinger saying he has hit the jackpot by bagging the Pussycat Dolls star as a girlfriend.
The 36-year-old former rugby player has been dating 43-year-old Nicole for the past two years after they met on The X Factor : Celebrity back in 2019.
And the chiselled hunk has hinted he may well marry the chart topping singer as he says he has never felt the way he feels about Nicole for anyone else.
Thom famously dated British model Kelly Brook and Canadian actress Jessica Lowndes in the past, but it is Nicole who has him considering his future – while he is loving every minute of the present.
Opening up to The Sun on Sunday, Thom said: “Nobody is asking Nicole how she got with me because I’m massively punching (above my weight).
“She’s so easy and fun to be around. I’ve hit the jackpot.”
The pair were introduced after Thom and his X Factor: Celebrity bandmates Levi Davis and Ben Foden were rescued from elimination by the American star.
The lads went to thank Nicole after wards – and this is where Thom immediately hit it off with the React singer.
He hints it was love at first sight and that Nicole could end up being Mrs Evans.
He said: “People always say, ‘When you know, you know’ and I can honestly say I’d never really had that moment. But within the first couple of days with Nicole it was just awesome and it has been awesome ever since.”
“It wasn’t even in my thought process to try it on with Nicole because it would have been unprofessional and she’s so lovely and stunning in every possible way. I was just like, ‘She’s out of my league’.”
Thom and Nicole have a huge online following between them – with fans envious and lustful of their toned bodies which are routinely flaunted as the pair take in beaches and lakes while travelling the world with work.
Back in July, it was hinted the couple might soon get engaged, wed and start a family.
A source told New magazine in July: “Nicole and Thom are extremely loved-up. They're thinking about starting a family and, because of Nicole's age, they want to start soon. She knows that time is ticking.
"They're desperate for a baby - Thom even more so. He has always wanted to be a dad and he would love nothing more than to have children as he's from a very close family himself.
"He loves kids and he'd be a great dad, but he wants to do it the right way. He's very traditional and he ideally would like to get married first.”
Fans are also rooting for the couple – with many urging Thom to propose when he celebrated Nicole's birthday in June.
"Ahhhh omg so cute! Put a ring on her finger!" one wrote, responding to an Instagram post.
A second echoed: "Thommy it's her birthday… the best present would be a [ring]." A third wrote: "You GUYSS!! Put a ring on her finger!"Read More Read More
