Nikki's Christmas Movies
As you can see from the list above, about half of Nikki's Hallmark movies are about Christmas. Either the word "Christmas" is in the title or the movie is based on a Christmas theme.
Nikki is more than just an actress. She is also the co-founder and teacher of “What We Are” and a spokesperson for the Alzheimer’s Association and Children's Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA). She is a wife, mother, and avid animal lover.
Nikki married Ryan Goodell, a member of the boy band Take 5, in September 2009. Their first son, William Hudson Goodell, was born on October 22, 2013. Their second son, Bennett Christopher Goodell, was born on September 20, 2017.
When Nikki was five months pregnant with Bennett, it was discovered that he had multiple heart defects. Doctors didn't think he would survive. He was sent to CHLA a day after he was born and cardiothoracic surgeon Vaughn Starnes performed surgery that saved his life. It was a miracle because most infants do not survive with that condition.
