Nina and Laura, the couple that has likely heated up your Instagram feed with their sensual photos, met two years ago through Tinder. Since then, they have fallen madly in love and are trying to get pregnant. “It’s a beautiful journey, but it’s also really hard,” says Nina, “Thank God Laura is always there for me.” Nina describes Laura as the “love of her life” and someday would love to marry her. “We had five tries [to get pregnant] already, and every time the disappointment is even bigger. We try to stay as positive as possible, and I’m doing everything in my power to support Nina the best I can,” says Laura. They are currently planning to get a registered partnership so they can both lawfully be the parents of their future child.

“Laura is so sweet and very handsome. Overall, she is beautiful to everybody. She is who she is; she loves who she is. I think that’s one of the most important things — to be true to who you are,” Nina says. The secret to their relationship is communication and honesty. “I’ve never been much of a talker about my feelings,” Laura says, “but there is something about Nina. She makes it easy for me.”
