During his playful joint interview with Costeen on the Today show, he hinted to host Karl Stefanovic that marriage and babies are on the cards.

When asked by Karl whether they ‘talk futures’, Nick sweetly said that while Costeen is not ready to talk about it publicly, he’s ‘not going anywhere anytime soon’.

Appearing on a tennis court with Nick and Costeen, Karl cheekily asked the brunette beauty whether Nick is her ‘first tennis player’ and will be her ‘last’.

Costeen appeared shy, simply responding ‘yeah’ to both questions before laughing.

However Nick hinted at babies in their future when he applauded Karl on his cheeky question to Costeen, responding with ‘one to the little ones’.

'It's unbelievable. Honestly. It's such a vibe. It's good energy,' he said, adding: 'She makes me really, really happy. The vibes are always good there'
