Since joining his so-called “Vlog Squad,” Natalie has become a beloved part of his vlogs. Fans have grown to love Natalie for her humor, her relatability and her loyalty to David and his work.
David first met Natalie when they were both students at Vernon Hills High School in Vernon Hills, Illinois. In a 2019 interview, he admitted he had a “little bit of a crush” on her growing up.

Natalie’s personal life has always been in the spotlight, but she opts not to share so much about herself on social media. The social media star was dating Shawn Nelson until 2018, when the couple broke up.
In 2020, rumors surfaced that David and Natalie were dating. The rumors happened during the COVID-19 pandemic and stay-at-home orders. However, David and Natalie addressed the rumors and said they weren’t true. David posted a YouTube video about it.
In a YouTube video, he said that he has “been hooking up with Natalie.” Natalie comes on screen in the video and they do a cheek kiss. “That’s not a joke, we seriously have, like we’ve run out of options,” he says. However, after, both Natalie and David said the rumors weren’t true.
