Their newlyweds and their absolutely in love. This year, Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon officially married (January 9th), announcing their relationship status on Twitter. Until now, they’ve shared very little about their relationship. This week, the couple discussed their marriage, for the first time, with Extra.
The couple said the criticism surrounding their romance actually made them stronger. Nick said, “It put a fire in us,” to which Bobbi Kristina added, “It lit a fire up under our ass and we went haulin’.” Nick explained,
The critics can say whatever they want to say… it’s like we have a force field and that s**t’s just bouncing off of it.
As most of us know, before their romance began they were best of friends when Bobbi Kristina’s mom, Whitney Houston, asked Nick to move in with them after he was going through a difficult time.
Nick said, “Me calling [Whitney] mom, this where everybody gets the…” Bobbi injected, “Brother and sister…” Nick added,
We were young. Krissy looked at me as an older brother, and I looked at her as a little sister. She [Whitney] just treated me like she gave birth to me. She treated me like a son. Excuse me for saying this… she treated me better than my birth mother. I owe everything to her.
Bobbi Kristina and Nick admitted their romance blossomed after Whitney’s 2012 death. Contrary to what some of the public thinks, they both insist that it was something Whitney would have wanted. Nick explained:
She made me promise several times to look after Krissy… and, Mom, I will never ever, ever break that promise.
Bobbi chimed in,
She wanted this. This is something she wanted to see.
The two also addressed reports that Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother, Cissy Houston, does not approve of their relationship.
Bobbi Kristina stated,
She told both of us that she loved us very, very, very much, and Nick came up and he said ‘Grandma, I want to marry her. Is it okay? I need your blessing to do this, if I don’t have your blessing I won’t feel right,’ and she looked at him and she smiled. She smiled very wide and said, ‘Yes, son, you have my blessing.
No word on if Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby, approves but it appears their relationship is much better:
We have a relationship. It’s a good one right now. At a point in time, we didn’t even have that… I love my father more than anything.
