NATHAN FILLION’S FIRST FIANCEE WAS VANESSA MARCIL
Although Fillion has been very successful in recent years, many people still wonder what his private life is like, especially his love life. Many questions if there is a lucky woman with the title of wife of Nathan Fillion somewhere.
Indeed, the actor’s love life has been as exciting as his professional life. In 1995, he began dating “Beverly Hills, 90210” actress Vanessa Marcil, who was also his “General Hospitals” co-star. After just eight months together, the couple decided to get engaged.
Unfortunately, the whirlwind romance was short-lived. A few months after the engagement, Marcil and Fillion’s engagement fell apart under their undisclosed differences.
NATHAN FILLION HAD A LONG-LASTING RELATIONSHIP WITH PERRY REEVES
For many years after her engagement and breakup with Marcil, Fillion remained single and focused on her career. That was until 2005 when news broke that actress Perrey Reeves had officially become Nathan Fillion’s girlfriend.
The lovebirds confirmed the news and dated for four years. During those years, the couple was the cutest and they were often spotted walking together.
Again, things ended disappointingly when Reeves and Fillion separated in 2009. Reeves then got engaged to Aaron Fox, co-founder and president of tennis company Grips.

NATHAN FILLION PROPOSED TO HIS SECOND FIANCEE JUST MONTHS AFTER DATING
Over the next two years, Fillion was rumored and confirmed that he was dating a lot of people, including Felicia Day. The duo were co-stars in “Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog” in 2009 and reportedly had a child together.
Day gave birth to her daughter in 2017, naming the baby Calliope Maeve. However, she did not reveal who the father of her child is. All we know is that she conceived her child through IVF treatment.
Eventually, Fillion began dating actress Mikaela Hoover, whom he met in 2013. They got engaged the same year and appeared publicly in red carpet events and photography. Sadly, the beautiful couple didn’t make it to the altar as they broke up soon after.

KRISTA ALLEN WAS NATHAN FILLION’S GIRLFRIEND
In 2015, Fillion again turned heads with another stunning partner. He started dating Krista Allen, an actress and model who previously dated actor George Clooney. An insider said of their relationship:
“They met a few months ago through friends, and it’s going really well. He met his son, and they get along great. Krista is super happy. She was a bit unlucky in love in the past, and now she found this really nice guy. […].”
Despite a good start, this relationship also failed. With the kind of bumpy love life Fillion has had, the actor would still be single and focused on his career. Hope he finds the right person for him.
