Chart-topping rapper NF has built a devoted fanbase from his Eminem-inspired flow and deeply emotional lyricism. Does this up and coming rapper have any kids at home?
NF has no children. However, he is married to Bridgette Feuerstein, a lifestyle and wellness influencer, and the happy couple are great pet parents to two adorable rescue dogs named Bruce and Louie.
Perhaps NF and Bridgette Feuerstein will choose to have children in the future. However, at the moment, they seem more than content with their two rescue dogs, or as Bridgette Feuerstein often refers to them in doting Instagram posts, “fur babies.”
Family and Personal Life
Nathan John Feuerstein, whose stage name is NF, married Bridgette Feuerstein (nee Doremus) in 2018. The couple appears to have a healthy and loving relationship, and they often share photos of one another on their respective Instagram accounts.
Bridgette Feuerstein typically posts inspirational and motivational fitness and exercise photos on her social media page, but she shared a lovely snapshot of her wedding to NF in one post.
In the post, which celebrated their first anniversary, Bridgette Feuerstein cites their committed relationship, as the two had been together for four and a half years before tying the knot. She concludes her caption with a joking note that reads, “Here’s to many more years of putting up with each other’s crazy.”
According to Celeb Suburb, the couple first met at a block party where NF performed for attendees.
Since it would be downright cruel to mention the couple’s winsome pooches without sharing a photo, here’s a snap of Bruce. He is a suspected (with rescue dogs, it is impossible to know for sure) Papillon and Pomeranian mix breed taking a nap.
How cute! If you need more Bruce in your life, NF’s wife, Bridgette Feuerstein, also has more photos of their rescue dogs on her Instagram page.
As for NF, he likes to keep things closer to the chest, except when he shares his feelings through music. However, he has spoken about his relationship with Christianity in interviews, which affects his personal and family life.
Nathan Feuerstein identifies as Christian and often tops the Christian-themed music charts. NF is also signed to the record label Capitol CMG, or Capitol Christian Music Group, and has worked with the label since 2014.
In an interview with NME, NF describes that although he identifies as Christian, he believes that his music’s themes can touch listeners of any denomination. He also says that he often struggles with his relationship to religion, saying, “I think in some of the more desperate times of my life I go to God and I feel guilty about it because [I ask] ‘Why do I only do it when I feel this way?’”
CBN News quotes NF pondering, “If you’re a Christian and you’re a plumber, are you a Christian plumber?” Perhaps labels are not the most important to NF, personally.
Emotions Behind the Lyricism
Another frequent subject of NF’s music is his mental health. He even titled his 2016 album “Therapy Session,” its lyrics explicitly speak about his struggles with mental illness.
Jesus Freak Hideout, a Christian music review website, gave the album three and a half stars. David Craft wrote of the sophomore album, saying that the “appeal is its attitude of inward reflection while working through past hurts and personal struggles.”
NF has had many personal struggles in his life, such as childhood abuse and his mother’s tragic suicide. Perhaps that is why he is so open in his lyrics, to touch the lives and hearts of fans who may be going through similar struggles.
One of his most popular tracks, “Let You Down,” off NF’s 2017 album, “Perception,” NF uses his lyrics to create a dialogue with his past self, saying that he let himself down, using the common therapy method of speaking to one’s inner child.
NF gets even more explicit about this in the outro monologue in the title track of “Therapy Session,” where he says, “When I feel something, whether it’s anger / Um, it’s a passion about something—or frustration / Like, this is where I go / This is—this is—that’s the whole “NF Real Music” thing, man / This is real for me—I need this / This is a therapy for me.”
Thankfully, he has this outlet of music and a healthy relationship to cope with these struggles.
