Fans of reality television know that producers save most of the drama for the after-show, and the Teen Mom 2 reunion specials are no exception. Now, we have the addition of the spinoff series Teen Mom: The Next Chapter, which has a reunion special that is equally as dramatic as the ones that came before it.
During the reunions, the moms are joined by psychologist Dr. Drew Pinksy and co-host Nessa Diab. But what do we know about Nessa Diab? Read on to find out.
Who is 'Teen Mom 2' reunion Nessa Diab?
While Teen Mom 2 is over, Nessa did host all of its reunion specials. And now, she hosts the reunions for Teen Mom: The Next Chapter.
Although Nessa was born in California, she spent most of her childhood traveling back and forth to Saudia Arabia with her parents and two brothers.
Once she graduated from high school, Nessa pursued a degree in mass communications at the University of California. Shortly after, she landed her first on-air radio gig.
It wasn’t long before Nessa caught the eye of MTV, which recruited her to join the cast of Girl Code. Since her television debut, Nessa has hosted several MTV reunions and after-shows and later launched her NBC series, Talk Stoop, in 2018.
Along with building her professional resume, over the years, Nessa has also made her mark as an activist alongside her longtime boyfriend, Colin Kaepernick. But are Nessa and Colin still together? Are the two married?
Is Nessa Diab married?
Nessa is not married, but she has been committed to her former NFL star boyfriend, Colin, since at least February of 2016, when the couple made their relationship official on social media. But reports confirm that Nessa and Colin’s professional relationship began a year prior.
Nessa is vocal about women’s reproductive rights, which closely aligns with Colin’s history of activism. Nessa and Colin began developing the Know Your Rights Camp — an organization dedicated to "the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities" — long before Colin took a knee during the 2016 football season.
Since then, the co-founders have sourced more than $1 billion to donate to bail funds across the country.
Nessa and Colin have one child together.
Although Nessa and Colin seem to prefer a good amount of privacy in their lives outside of sports and television, they did welcome a baby together in August 2022. Before then, there were rumors about Nessa being pregnant but, with the couple being so private, many fans were surprised by the birth of their child.
Nevertheless, Nessa continues to be a fan favorite on the Teen Mom reunions. And she remains an important voice of reason for the moms who, more often than not, engage in some serious on-stage drama.
Watch the second part of the Teen Mom: The Next Chapter reunion on Dec. 27 at 8 p.m. EST on MTV.
