In a Q &A video with fans, Catherine openly discussed her initial hesitation in this relationship-“Or that it’s going to be. And this is the thing, this is the reason why. It’s because when we met, every single relationship leading to that point has always ended. And so my initial thought was it’s probably not going to last, just because every other time hasn’t. And it was at the point of my life where I was like ‘I think I’m going to be single forever.'”
But she affirmed her feelings for Austin by saying, “I really do think that Austin and I are meant to be in every way possible,” she said. “Literally, to every single extent we are meant to be.”
