Is Nina Sosanya Married? Who Is Her Partner?

Sosanya, a native of Islington, London, does not have any official reports of her marriage, so she probably never married. Even so, this won’t be enough to keep off prying eyes keen to uncover her relationship status.

So, is the W1A actress dating anyone? Well, she has yet to confirm being officially in a relationship. Fans wonder why Nina, 54 Years, has kept herself away from romance displays—perhaps she doesn’t want to, or maybe she doesn’t have one.

In the past, she was romantically linked with communication coach Stephen Sarossy, while many online sources confirmed that they were dating for real. Their relationship story became evident after appearing at the Screen Nation Film & Television Awards in November 2005.

Fast-forward more than a decade. On April 8, 2018, the duo attended the Laurence Olivier Awards, where they were pictured together.

Since then, there has been no mention of Stephen from Nina, leaving many puzzled if they went separate ways or if it’s a low-key stature like before.

Sarossy, an alum of the University of Exeter, originally trained as an actor and then worked as a screenwriter and story consultant before switching careers. Now, he works as a specialist coach at Kindred (May 2020—present).

Sosanya Mentioned About Having A Partner

The term “Sosanya’s partner” brings a throwback from her interview with The Graham Norton Show in 2020, where she mentioned a male partner. Moreover, in August 2020, during a Q&A interview with The Guardian, Nina shared a story of an incident with her partner.

As reported, the Good Omens actress and her partner (name undisclosed) went on a screen of the 2001 nature documentary series, The Blue Planet. The two sat in the front seat of David Attenborough, the narrator of the docuseries.

Nina, a fan of Attenborough, recalled the moment she and her partner tried to avoid earwig but couldn’t help but repeated his every narration, which probably left him awkward.

Is Nina Sosanya Pregnant? Any Children?

There was no mention of her character expecting a baby until episode four of the series. Even more, her character revealed one of the pregnancy facts in a scene when she loses her tooth while eating, saying, “Did you know that babies literally steal the calcium from your teeth?”

What Is Sosanya’s Sexuality? Is She Lesbian?

Nina Sosanya does not identify as lesbian and never spoke of her sexuality being other than cisgender. Unsurprisingly, fans sometimes connect an actor’s real-life character with that actor’s real-life scenario, which was no different to Sosanya.

In the British comedy-drama series Last Tango in Halifax, she portrayed Kate McKenzie, a lesbian in a relationship with Caroline (played by Sarah Lancashire).

However, at the end of the episode, Kate gets critically injured in an accident and is taken to hospital and gives birth to their daughter, Flora Grace, but loses her life.
