The two initially met at New York City’s Biergarten at the Standard Hotel in May 2012, which is when their love story really began. Dean gushed about how beautiful Nikki’s grin was. He then appreciated Nikki’s grace, elegance, and intrigue as they were speaking. Before they could even utter a word, their gazes remained fixed. Nikki recalls the breathtaking smile Dean flashed across his attractive face.

Nikki Battiste and Dean Simpson

Dean Simpson was born in London, England, UK but spent much of his childhood in Wales. He is a qualified soccer instructor. When Dean was eight years old, he started playing soccer (football for the Brits), rugby and basketball. While off the field, he delighted everyone by singing Stevie Wonder’s, “I just called to say, I love you.”.

When Dean was a young soccer player, he was motivated to one day coach and develop soccer programs. Dean made it his goal to move to the United States in order to develop the sport in America because there were few professional coaching and playing chances in the United Kingdom. He fulfilled his dream after graduating from the University of Wales Institute in Cardiff with a degree in sports management.

The handsome Welshman relocated to New York in 2004 to pursue a career as a soccer coach. Dean has coached soccer and trained coaches all around the United States. He recently spent time developing soccer programs for underprivileged kids and aspiring coaches in rural Zimbabwe.

Macho man Dean is probably building and fixing items that Nikki has broken around the house when he isn’t working. He loves to entertain with his dance moves, cook, explore New York City, watch Liverpool games, and attend concerts. He frequently challenges Nikki to a dance-off since, in his opinion, he is a wonderful dancer.

Nikki can’t sing or cook to save her life, so Dean cooks while she sings anyway. While watching soccer, Nikki also supports Liverpool. The second best choice Nikki ever made was to resume riding horses over high jumps when Dean pushed her to do so.
