Nielsen and Bowles began dating around April 2020 and welcomed daughter Andara Rose Bowles in March 2021.

A few months before their baby’s arrival, Nielson opened up on the Scheananigans with Scheana Shay podcast in December 2020 about what it was like to learn her pregnancy news in the middle of her split from ex Chris Randone.


Nielson announced her separation from Randone in February 2020 after nearly eight months of marriage. She later confirmed that they were still moving forward with their divorce.

“It was scary finding out we were pregnant,” Nielson explained, adding that she learned of her pregnancy in August 2020, about four months after she began dating Bowles. “Especially me still being legally tied in this marriage and having this whole public thing around it.”




Although Nielson said she initially had a “lot of anxiety and worry” about her pregnancy, it ended up strengthening her faith “in myself and Myles.”


“This can be an incredible story that I’ll be able to share one day to inspire a lot of women in my position,” she continued. “We’re so excited about the future.”
