Not too long after they got together, the Emmy Award winner appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2017 where he said that his girlfriend calms him down because he's a very "high-strung" person.

"Your girlfriend is lovely — I met her backstage," DeGeneres said at the time. "She's a nurse. That's a good thing for you, because you're a hypochondriac."
