There only has been one other episode of this show in almost four years that has featured two guests being interviewed simultaneously. Today is episode number two. And it’s a powerful one so get ready to meet Nick and Katherine North, a beautiful couple living with their children in Canada.
Katherine was a cynic who didn't even believe in true love...until she accidentally fell in love at almost 40-years-old with her best friend, Nick.
But when they fell in love, he wasn't "Nick"... he was "Nikki." And, Nikki was pregnant with baby #4!
Assigned female at birth, Nick always knew deep down he was a man trapped in a woman's body. A stay-at-home pregnant mom and family photographer who didn’t think life could ever be any different, he was stuck in a life that should have made him happy but wasn’t his own.
Together, they navigated Nick's transition from female to male as a couple and as parents and as business owners.
They negotiated the challenges of transitioning while blending a family and keeping their businesses afloat. They continue maneuvering through marriage, parenting five kids, nontraditional gender roles (who pays the bills and does the dishes?), and so much more.
Nick and Katherine teach us that every family is different, and families can be more than the traditional man, woman and kids and it’s okay to live in our absolute truth. Once we own up to our truth, success will follow.
Tune in to hear:
