Nathan Sykes Admits He Was ‘So Scared’ When Introducing Ariana Grande To His Parents
The Wanted singer Nathan Sykes has revealed that his new girlfriend Ariana Grande has already met his family. Their blossoming romance sounds serious!
The 20-year-old star admitted that he was “so scared” to introduce Ariana to his parents, but apparently they loved the Nickelodeon star so much they were left wondering how he had managed to bag such a beauty.
“I took her back to Gloucester yesterday (October 6) to meet all my family,” he told Digital Spy at last night’s Pride of Britain awards.
“I was so scared, you don’t even realise.
“But my family think she’s amazing and they’re like, ‘Nathan, how?’ and I’m like, ‘I don’t know’.
“I don’t think anyone can ever punch above their weight, but I feel very lucky, put it that way.”
The 20-year old also added that his Wanted bandmates also “love” Ariana, stating: “They feel really protective over her. They’ve taken her under their wing.
“I’m always like, ‘Don’t lead her astray, boys, don’t lead her astray’. They adore her. She’s the easiest person to get on with.”
Nathan confirmed his romance with Ariana on Twitter last month and was asked shortly after if he’d have liked to have kept their relationship secret for longer, to which he replied: “People speculated for so long, but there was never anything official to say.
“When I actually got the balls to sort out what was happening, we told them the next day. We’ve always been completely honest with the fans, because we have good relationships with them. If you’re really happy and you’re comfortable with one another, why hide it?”
He added: “She’s amazing, I’m so happy… she’s a really special girl, I think the world of her and I hope we’ll be together for a very long time.”
