While Jeremiah wasn't wildly enthusiastic about going antiquing, he has no regrets about their first date. In fact, it went so well that he never returned to L.A. "I literally never left. It actually sounds scary when I say it out loud. It worked out," he told the outlet. "I definitely never really believed in true love because I didn’t understand it but now I’ve experienced it so ... he’s pretty good. He happens to be a really good guy, too, which helps," he continued.

Before meeting Jeremiah, Nate was dating photographer Fernando Bengoechea. But in 2004 during a Tsunami in Sri Lanka, Fernando tragically passed away

Oskar was Fernando's middle name. In order to honor Nate's late ex, Jeremiah suggested that they name their second child Oskar. While it may be awkward to name your son after your husband's ex, Jeremiah explained to Oprah that he felt connected to Fernando. “That’s a part of our love story, there’s no two ways about it,” he said.

After meeting and falling in love in New York City, Nate and Jeremiah packed their bags and headed to Los Angeles.

Currently, they live in a townhouse in the West Village neighborhood of New York City.
