In 2010, Natalie got engaged to Adam Cottrell after the two first met at the Isle of Wight music festival. The pair started dating in 2009 and followed the four years of relationship before they got split. 

In October of 2010, both Natalie and her then-boyfriend, Adam welcomed their first child, a daughter named Eliza. She shared about her daughter’s beauty in an interview in 2010 saying,

"She's so beautiful. I can't begin to tell you - I know everybody says that about their own baby but she really is.

In an interview, Natalie spoke about her family's future following her baby daughter's birth stating, 

“There’s plenty of time for more. Within the next couple of years we’ll think of trying for another. Our life is perfect.”

Though the love-life of Natalie and her then-fiance, Adam Cottrell was good in the initial years, it took a turbulent turn later. In the year 2011, Adam, who was a then-trainee accountantassaulted her, which even led to arrest of Adam. 

Her ex-boyfriend was charged with two counts of assault by beating and two counts of criminal damage after he was arrested in Broxbourne, Herts, at 5.30pm in May 2011.

Natalie split from Adam after the incident but reunited with him moving on from the past incident. In an interview with Dailymail on November 2013, she stated, 

"I know it's hard for some people to understand but we have worked at our relationship and I am so proud of how far we have come. I am so glad we gave it another shot because I love him."

However, Adam assaulted her for the second time which resulted in Adam sentenced to 120 hours community service and the restraining order which prevented Natalie's former boyfriend to contact her.

But this beautiful daughter couldn’t stay with his daddy due to his abusive behavior toward Natalie. Natalie gave him a lot of chances to redeem the mistakes but Adam never changed his behavior and that ultimately led Natalie to end the engagement.

In 2013 she parted her ways with Adam and was even spotted in public without her engagement ring.

"Since having my daughter I’m not obsessed with being thin any more. My ultimate goal was to look curvy, toned and fit. So I’ve been doing 60-minute sessions with trainer Rob at the gym six days a week. I thought I was done with weight loss, but after having Eliza I was left with a mummy tummy and I decided I needed to tone up."

However, six months after giving birth to second daughter, Joana, she appeared at the Television and Radio Industries Club awards ceremony sparkling her slim figure after the weight loss.
