My Plus One: Bridget Malcolm and Nathaniel Hoho
Australian model Bridget Malcolm and her musician husband, Nathaniel Hoho, are the definition of It-couple. Not only are the pair one of the coolest couples strolling the streets of their hometown of New York City, but also, the Victoria Secret model and lead vocalist and guitarist of NYC-based Walking Shapes are as talented as they are genetically blessed.
The pair tied the knot earlier this year in a low-key ceremony in Hoho’s hometown of Mifflintown, Pennsylvania overlooking the region’s scenic Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians earlier this year. Malcolm recently revealed to MyDomaine Australia that they play multiple games of backgammon over cups of black coffee every single morning—so cute. And just when we thought we couldn’t love them anymore, they got personal with us—read on to find out what they love most about one another, how they’d describe each other in a song, and everything in-between.

NATHANIEL HOHO: “Her laugh and smile. She's the most compassionate, fun-loving, and easy-going person I have ever met!”

MD: What’s their guilty pleasure?
BM: “Chocolate chip cookies.”
NH: “Red Hot Chili Peppers.”
MD: What makes them laugh the most?
NH: “So much—I feel like Bridget is always laughing.”
MD: What is your favourite thing to do together?
BM: “Pretty much anything on the planet. I do love a good road trip though, we have driven a long way together.”
NH: “We both travel so much that just being together is our number one.”
MD: What’s the best date you’ve shared together?
BM: “Does our honeymoon count? A whole month just the two of us and no other distractions.”
NH: “Surf lessons together in Costa Rica—she was so happy!”
"I would describe Nathaniel as my best friend, cool, faithful, beautiful, loving, and fun.”
MD: How did you meet?
BM: “In a group of mutual friends in 2012.”

MD: What’s their worst habit?

MD: If you had to pick a song to describe your partner, what would it be and why?
BM: “'Landslide' by the Fleetwood Mac—we listened to this song together before we started dating, and it was our first dance as a married couple.”
NH: “It would have to be 'Snow' by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. She plays a mean air guitar, and knows every word to both.”
MD: Do you remember the first thing you said to each other?
BM: “Probably a super awkward hello and a wave—we both aren’t super at ease around strangers.”
