The actress, 25, penned a moving Instagram post on what would have been her nan’s birthday, after she passed away in January of this year.
Brooklyn responded to Nicola’s moving post with a sweet comment, saying her grandmother would ‘always’ be with her, and he was ‘so so proud’ of his bride-to-be.’
Nicola shared a trio of snaps with her beloved grandmother, with one showing them sweetly holding hands, and another showing her grandmother holding a rose.
The third image showed Nicola pushing her grandmother through the street in a wheelchair.
She penned the caption: ‘happy birthday to my angel in heaven.
‘i can’t even put into words how much i miss you being on earth. i wish so badly you could come back to visit me and see me get married.
‘i think about you everyday. i love you with all of my heart my gina.’ [sic]
Brooklyn then shared his support for his fiancée, commenting: ‘She will always be with you my baby ❤️❤️ so proud of you and we all love u so so much.’
In January Nicola revealed her grandmother had tragically passed away.
In a moving tribute she penned the caption: ‘my heart is broken doesn’t even touch what i feel right now. i honestly feel like my heart fell out of my body.
‘the reason i am being so open about this on such a public level is because i just wanted to send out a reminder that the most important thing in life is family.
‘spend as much time with the people u love while were lucky enough to have them on earth because one day god will want them back.
‘gina was a second mother to me, my love for her was never ending n overflowing. she was kind, elegant, gentle but beyond strong, and i can’t even put into words how beautiful she was.
‘her hair has been snow white since the day i was born and i always knew she was pure magic. she was truly my earth angel. i have dreaded this day for as long as i can remember n still can’t comprehend this is my new reality.
‘i don’t know why this happened the night before i turned 25 n maybe i’ll never know but all i know is that i am the luckiest girl in the whole world to have been able to know the most incredible woman for 25 years.
‘i feel lost n broken but i know she is with me forever, she always has been.’ [sic]
In August, Brooklyn set tongues wagging when he showed off a gold band on his wedding finger, fuelling speculation they’ve married in secret.
Appearing to confirm the union, the London native commented ‘my wife’ on a smitten snap of the pair – which Nicola had captioned ‘My forever’.
MailOnline contacted representatives for Brooklyn and Nicola for comment at the time.
Brooklyn took to Instagram in July to announce his engagement to Nicola following reports he had popped the question to his ‘soulmate’ after just eight months of dating.
Sharing a stunning snap of the couple, he wrote: ‘Two weeks ago I asked my soulmate to marry me and she said yes xx
‘I am the luckiest man in the world. I promise to be the best husband and the best daddy one day. I love you baby xx.’
