Dating Girlfriend Or Gay?
Atticus is somewhat of an expert when it comes to hiding information about his love life. The actor has not revealed anything about his dating affair and girlfriend.
The Santa Clarita, California native, might not be interested in dating for now as he describes himself as a nerd and likes to stay at home. He is also a passionate gamer and loves sharing updates on his hobby via Twitter.
Perhaps, preferring to be inside the house most of the time is the reason for his single status.
Moving on from his real-life relationships, let’s talk about his on-screen partners. Atticus had a wife on The Middle named Cindy Heck (played by Casey Burke).
The couple broke up once in the show but got back together soon after.
