We don’t know exactly when the duo started dating but judging from the couple’s social media timeline; it was around late 2019 or early 2020.
Having a baby and engagement
Some relationships don’t take a lot of time to blossom. Similarly, the couple soon knew they fitted well together and started planning for a family.

In August 2021, the bride-to-be had a fun bachelorette party on the beach with her bridesmaids.
Moving to New York
Since the shortstop got traded to the Mets, the couple has moved to New York. It was a bit unpredicted move for them, but they seem to have well adjusted. Carlos Beltrán and his wife Jessica helped them get settled a find a home in the city.
In an interview he gave after moving to new york, Fransisco revealed that they had not explored the city because they had only received one dose of covid vaccine.
He also shared that Katia was interested in visiting museums and galleries in the city while he was more into exploring the eateries.
In early 2021, the couple paid $2,9 million to buy an estate in Montverde, Florida.

There are various other amenities in the house besides that.
Fransisco Lindor and Nilmarie Huertas
Before Fransisco met Katia, he was dating another Puerto Rican beauty, Nilmarie Huertas. The exact details of their first meeting are unknown, but they have been together since 2012.
Nilmaire Huertas is the sister of David Huertas, who has made a name for himself in Puerto Rico as a shooting guard in Baloncesto Superior National.
Since the Huertas family is also into baseball, we can guess they have known each other for a long time.
The couple spent six solid years in a beautiful relationship and definitely not shy of showing their love on social media. Nilmarie accompanied Lindor in most of his games, and they used to travel together for vacation.
However, things started to change around 2017. Soon, there was news of the breakup. Initially, both parties stayed quiet about the reason for the separation despite great dissatisfaction from fans.
Lindor was accused of cheating on Huerta, but he denied those allegations.
After quite some time, Nilmarie talked about their relationship with a Puerto Rican journalist and how she went through the breakup. She revealed that she was depressed after they parted ways and even thought of ending her life.
Fortunately, she has recovered pretty well from that phase and is thriving in her life now.
As of 2021, Nilmarie is dating Puerto Rican basketball player Walter Hodge. Also, she owns her boutique, ‘Vellisimo Studio,’ which specializes in modern ladies’ clothing.
