The couple hasn’t moved into together just yet, but Nayte brought Michelle to Winnipeg, Canada, marking her very first visit to the country in mid-January 2022. The couple made a stop at Tim Horton’s upon their arrival in Canada, and Michelle tried some coffee and a cruller donut for the very first time on January 15, 2022. The duo documented the memories on their respective Instagram Stories.
The trip was filled with fun, as Michelle and Nayte enjoyed ice skating and hung out with some friends, but one of the highlights was Michelle getting to meet Nayte’s father. On “The Bachelorette,” Michelle met Nayte’s mother and his step-dad, but this was the first time that she got to meet his bio dad. Moreover, this is the first time that Nayte has ever introduced a girl to his father.

Michelle Appeared to Hit it Off Swimmingly With Nayte’s Dad
Nayte’s dad was overjoyed to meet his son’s fiancee, and greeted Michelle with a huge hug — and Nayte caught it all on camera. The front door to Nayte’s dad’s house opened and Michelle walked in as Nayte said, “official,” and laughed. Nayte’s dad embraced Michelle and had a big smile on his face.
In a photo that Nayte shared on his Instagram account, his dad and Michelle were all smiles as they hugged one another. It seems as though Michelle is already a part of the family. She was also spotted sitting on the couch with her soon-to-be father-in-law, and everyone looked as if they’ve known each other for years.
“Michelle’s first time in Canada! Took her to my hometown. Until next time, Winnipeg,” Nayte captioned his photo dump from the trip.
Now that both Michelle and Nayte have met their respective families, the future planning can really begin. Nayte is planning on moving to Minnesota to live with Michelle full-time in the coming weeks. After that, a wedding is in the cards — and the two don’t feel as though they need to wait.
“We’re so excited to start our life together,” Michelle told People magazine in December 2021. “The planning is picking up speed. No shade to anybody who wants a long engagement, but that’s not us. We’re like, cool, you’re my person, I’m your person. We’re ready,” she added.
