The rise of TikTok has given us a whole new way to interact with one another, and it has also provided an entirely new category of celebrities. As bona fide TikTok superstars have come into their own, they’ve built fan bases that get the added benefit of feeling like they have an up-close-and-personal relationship with their celebrities of choice. Because of the personal nature of the platform and the way stars get to share glimpses of their life without the distance of a film or television project, fans often feel especially drawn to TikTok stars’ personal lives and relationships. Some stars — like Mike and Kat Stickler — even rose to fame together as a couple, but now that the pair have split, fans are curious: Who Is Kat Stickler’s boyfriend now?
Kat and Mike rose to fame on TikTok
The wonderful thing about TikTok is that it can take the mundane and everyday and turn it into relatable (and insanely popular) content. You don’t need to be the greatest dancer or best singer or a stunning model to find a following on the platform. As Kat and Mike Stickler discovered when they started churning out content in May 2020, a pair of new parents and their baby is plenty to draw the attention of hundreds of thousands of fans and garner millions of likes.
Part of the Stickler’s success was tied up in their whirlwind romance. They started dating, got married, and found out they were having a baby within a span of just three short months. Mike Stickler also used their newfound success on the platform to draw some attention to his Christian band, Radiant Worship. Mostly, though, it was the couple’s humorous sharing of parenthood and their relatable and cute relationship that kept viewers drawn to their content.
What happened to Kat and Mike Stickler?
Since much of the draw of their TikTok fame was built around their marriage and journey into parenthood, it came as quite a shock to fans to hear that the couple was calling it quits. When Kat Stickler started showing up alone in videos in February 2021, fans were worried. Soon, rumors were swirling that the pair had split, and eventually Kat took to the platform to confirm their worst fears: “We are separating. We just wanted to be transparent with you guys because you guys have been with us from the beginning of this whole journey.”
Mike Stickler seemed to step up as the cause of the split, explaining, “There’s a lot of things I need to work on in my own life.” Meanwhile, the TikTok account has changed to just Kat Stickler’s name, and she has continued to make funny videos on her own.
Now it seems that Kat Stickler has moved on and is dating a new beau, and her fans are curious to learn more about this relationship and the new man in her life.
Who is Kat Stickler’s boyfriend?
As of September 2021, fans were curious to see some subtle allusions to a potential new love interest in Kat Stickler’s posts. While she stayed mum about the details, Distractify referred to the posting as a “soft launch” that made it clear she was dating without tagging anyone in particular or showing his face.
Kat Stickler has still not officially announced her boyfriend’s name, but fans have figured it out. He’s Cam Winter, an engineer from Tampa, Fla., according to Hollywood Mask. Sleuthing fans have also found that Kat Stickler frequently shows up in the social feeds of Taylor Winter, Cam Winter’s sister. While the trio has never been pictured publicly together, there’s speculation that the couple likely met through Taylor.
