Nicky Bandini Husband

Nicky is transgender. However, she has managed to keep her marital status away from the limelight. Therefore, it is not known whether she is married, single, or in a relationship.

She came out in  August 2019. In a video posted on Twitter, the Serie A expert said: “The thing that you need to know is nothing much changes in terms of my work. I am still going to be covering Italian football, European football and hopefully a bit of NFL.”

Nicky added, “I know that sentence will come as a shock to many people. Even after struggling with gender dysphoria – a sense of discomfort with and dissociation from the body that life dealt me and the expectations that go with it – for almost my whole life, it took me the best part of three‑and‑a-half decades to be able to say it out loud.

There it is, though, in black and white. I have written my last article under the name Paolo Bandini. From now on, it will be Nicky.

It’s OK to find this confusing. It’s OK if it takes time for people who know me or have followed my work to remember the new name or that I use for myself the pronouns she and her. It would be hypocritical of me to expect other people to instantly digest information that took me countless hours of therapy and lived experience.

Transition is a journey and a slow one at that. I came out to the most important people in my life three years ago, not with any declaration of intent but with buckets of tears and a panic attack. A part of me hoped that talking about dysphoria might finally chase it away. Another part expected the world to stop.”
