Nick Vujicic, born Nicholas James Vujicic, is a well-known motivational speaker. He is 39 years old and of Serbian descent. Due to an uncommon condition called tetra-amelia syndrome, he was born without arms or legs. Nick’s mom allegedly refused to see or hug him after he was born, and by the time his father got there, they had already left the hospital.

Initially, one of his feet had fused toes. Nick’s toes were surgically severed so he could use them like fingers, and he did so so he could grip things. He affectionately refers to it as his “chicken drumstick”.

From the time of his birth, Nick Vujicic endured a series of hardships. He was Australia’s first student with a handicap to be accepted into a mainstream academic setting. Regardless, his peers continued to view him as odd. But he persisted, and today he even celebrates his odd appearance. His dad often told him, “You’re a gift, just wrapped up weird.” Nick now bases his life on this maxim.

When he met Kanae, everything shifted.

Upon seeing Kanae for the first time in 2010, Nick knew immediately that he was in love with her. Nick was a guest speaker at a local Dallas event, and Kanae was in attendance. When Kanae met Nick, she had been in a relationship with her current partner. Nick, however, possessed the uncommon attributes she had been looking for in a man.

For Nick, it was love at first sight. And Kanae remembers that she felt a strong affinity for Nick when she first met him. When she finally looked into Nick’s eyes, she felt an instant connection.

Nick texted his buddy Tammy after the incident and begged for her assistance in getting closer to Kanae. From then on, the timeline of the two lovers’ relationship moved at light speed. After some duration of dating and exchanging long phone conversations, one day, Nick wrote on Facebook that he was engaged to Kanae. In a romantic proposal on August 1, 2011, Nick popped the question to Kanae while they were on a yacht in Santa Barbara. The couple tied the knot on February 12th, 2012.

As time passes, the couple’s love becomes stronger.
