Is Najwa Nimri Dating Someone?
Nimri is most probably in a romantic relationship as of this writing. She has been sharing some “love-filled” pictures alongside a man once in a while through her official Instagram handle. However, she is yet to reveal the identity of her boyfriend.
The first time she shared a picture alongside her alleged partner was on June 5, 2020. In that captionless picture, she was seen sitting beside the mysterious man while he covered his face with his hands.
On July 17, she posted a picture of the man only with a red heart emoji in the caption. Afterward, she has been occasionally sharing some snaps with her partner.
Most recently, on June 25, 2021, she shared a selfie of herself in a bed while seemingly hugging the unidentified man.
Going by those pictures, it surely seems that the two are in a romantic relationship. Despite openly sharing pictures alongside her partner, Nimri has been hesitant in revealing the identity of her lover. Only time will tell if she ever will disclose the details of her boyfriend.
Nimri Was Previously a Married Woman
Before developing a romantic relationship with her current boyfriend, the Spanish actress was in a marital relationship with Daniel Calparsoro, a Spanish writer, director, and producer. The now-separated couple shared the wedding vows in 1995.
While they were still married, they worked together on several acting gigs, including Salto al vacío (1995), Pasajes (1996), Blinded (1997), and Asfalto (2000)—Nimri worked as an actress and Calparsoro worked as a writer and director.

Najwa Is a Mother of One Baby

Nimri has a good relationship with her son and can be seen sharing some pictures via her Instagram handle. On June 20, 2021, she shared a baby picture of her son on the occasion of his 17th birthday.
She kept the caption short and sweet as she wrote, “… Was born in 2 and a half hours at 12:30 17 years ago @teo.mazore. my love.”
Currently, it is unknown who the father of her son is as there is no news of the Spanish actress being involved in a relationship with another man at that time. Additionally, it cannot be said that her former husband, Calparsoro, is the father of Teo as they had already parted ways.
