Nina Bott: Announcing her engagement was not planned

Actress Nina Bott (45) is engaged. In the RTL magazine "Gala", Annett Möller (44) spoke to her about the sparkling ring on her finger in the Saturday (May 6) issue. "Is that an engagement ring?" asked the presenter, which Bott confirmed after a moment's hesitation. After the two women hugged, Bott said, "I don't want to know what's going to happen when I get home."

According to Bott, it was not planned that the engagement with her partner Benjamin Baarz (35) would be an issue on TV, as she explained on Instagram on Saturday. "Not only was this not planned, but to be honest, I specifically requested that the topic not be brought up [...] Because my 'fiancé' and I have really enjoyed that it's been private so far," she wrote among other things in a story.

The day after, she also explained in another story to her followers: "I'm really sorry, I would have liked to have told you that myself, even if it had felt right to me. I'm so one with it I was a bit taken by surprise, I found that rather so medium and I was personally disappointed. But it's true, we are engaged and have been since October." She wrote that she was not resentful and that the topic was now over for her. "But maybe I'll be a bit more careful in the future..."

In the "Gala" magazine, the 45-year-old explained that the couple was "not really that far along in planning" when it came to the wedding. "I didn't expect it at all and it's not something I had on my to-do list." But of course it's great when you have four children and three together, "then it's actually the logical step".

Bott has been in a relationship with her fiancé since 2012, together they have the children Lobo (born 2021), Lio (born 2019) and Luna (born 2015). Son Lennox (19) comes from a previous relationship with Bott.
