In a recent interview, Oppenheim opened up to People about his love life, including specifics about his past relationship with Stause. For a period in their relationship, the pair kept their connection a secret from the media, which the actor described as challenging.

"We kept that private for a while, but we were so careful. And that was so difficult. I didn't want to go through that again," he told the publication.

Oppenheim and Stause met on the set of the Netflix reality series "Selling Sunset" and became close friends before becoming romantic. They admitted they were a couple in an exclusive with People in July 2021, and soon after, they started sharing PDA photos of themselves on Instagram.

Currently, Oppenheim is dating the model Marie-Lou Nurk. Early in July, the couple's relationship made the headlines after they were seen kissing in Mykonos, Greece. Per People, Oppenheim claimed he wasn't necessarily concealing their relationship, even if he didn't anticipate it being well publicized so soon.

"I suppose if we were being very careful, we just never would've kissed in public. But I certainly wasn't thinking that we would get caught — and on some Greek island in a parking lot, too," he told the publication.

The reality star also said that his new relationship makes him "happy every day," although he quickly clarified that he wasn't making a mockery of ex-girlfriend Stause with that statement.

Last month, Oppenheim revealed just how serious his relationship is with Nurk. At the time, the reality star shared he was now open to quitting his bachelor life to become a husband. However, he admitted his unreadiness to become a father.

"I'm more open to being a husband than I am a father right now," he said, per People.

He further told the publication that Nurk had not pressured him into having kids and just wanted to enjoy their relationship. "I like the idea that there's no pressure, or a thought about having to have a child with Lou. So it just makes it easy for us."

Oppenheim also shared whether he would eventually have kids, "I think for the next 10 years, I'm good. And that's a long time, so I'm not even thinking about it yet."
