NCIS real-life romance: Is Nick Torres actor Wilmer Valderrama married?

NCIS has seen plenty of romance both on and off-screen. So does actress Emily Wickersham have a special someone in her life?

NCIS was confirmed for an 18th season by CBS earlier this year. The main cast including Agent Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) and Agent Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) are expected to return but Jack Sloane (Maria Bello) will be making her exit in the upcoming series. As the team’s psychologist leaves her NCIS days behind, could her departure bring two of the other characters’ closer together?

When Agent Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham) was first introduced, she was married to Jake Malloy (Jamie Bamber).

As their relationship turned stale though, the chemistry between herself and Agent Nick Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) has been off the charts.

This has left fans questioning if they will get together in the next series as they continue to be thought of as the next Agent Tony Dinozzo (Michael Weatherly) and Ziva David (Cote de Pablo).

But what of actor Valderrama’s real love life? Has he got that special someone waiting for him behind the camera?

While this is the first time Valderrama has been engaged, he has previously been in a couple of serious high profile relationships.

Valderrama had previously dated singer Demi Lovato for six years until they decided to end their relationship in June 2016.

In a joint statement, they said: “After almost 6 loving and wonderful years together, we have decided to end our relationship.

“This was an incredibly difficult decision for both of us, but we have realized more than anything that we are better as best friends.

“We will always be supportive of one another.

“Thank you to everyone who has offered us kindness and support over the years. With only love, Wilmer & Demi.”

The NCIS actor also dated This Is Us actress Mandy Moore nearly two decades ago from 2000 to 2002.

The former couple did not disclose the reason behind their break-up but still remain to be close friends to this day.

Valderrama even attended Moore’s wedding to Taylor Goldsmith back in 2018.
