After Celina was done with the competition she decided that it was time to take big chances. She moved to another city, Windenburg and bought a unique house that is mostly underground.
She modified the house to suit her needs, adding an upper room that became her painting space. Something about painting soothed her, Celina decided that it wasn't time to look for love and spent the next year dedicated to her new career.
Love is funny, when your not looking for it, it finds you. One night when she went out to the bar with some of the other girls Paolo caught her eye. He was not what she considered her type but everything about him shouted fun and adventure so she took a chance and gave him her number
Sure enough he was just as expected, he was impulsive and took her to places she never would have thought of going, like the ruins on the other side of town or the Von Haunt house. They always had a laugh and both had good selfie game.
When they moved forward with their relationship it felt right, sparks went off whenever they were around each other, their passion was undeniable.
Still they both had their independence, their own friend groups and own lives outside of each other.
Despite them being careful, Celina did end up getting pregnant from one of their nights together. She was a little nervous to tell Paolo, not sure if he was the commitment type. Celina felt confident that she could support her child alone, but she definitely couldn't hide the hope in her eyes when she let Paolo know.
Paolo drew her close, gave her a deep kiss and when he pulled away he was smiling. He was thrilled by the news and asked Celina if she would let him live with her.
The support from Paolo and friends during this time is something she'd always look back on and appreciate, she had a difficult pregnancy with a lot of nausea and back pain.
During this time Paolo left the Partihaus, and spent most of his time off of work training and helping out Celina. He was looking to become a hall of famer.
The day Paolo decided to take the next step, he took Celina to the place they had shared their first kiss. He took his time to thank the baby for coming in their life, and then went on to explain how moving in with Celina just showed him what an amazing sim she is. The baby brought them together but it was Celina who won his heart. Paolo asked her to become his wife.
Celina said yes! The baby would have a father either way, but she wanted Paolo as more than just that, she wanted him in her life long after this next adventure.
They decided to get married that same night, and exchanged their vows in private.
Not long after their son Finn was born
Finn was a kid with a good sense of humor, he was a goofball at heart
Also good at selfies!
He was a good spirit about going on trips with his parents and despite being an only child he never really felt like it because his parent's friends had so many kids and he grew up always interacting with them. His parents brought the best out in him, his dad always encouraged him to be apart of sports and to put himself out there, and his mom always had a steady supply of comic books to encourage his love of learning.
When Finn became an adult he was both a geek and active, on top of being a goof ball. He would dedicate himself to becoming a programmer and launching indie games. He would often discuss his game concepts with his best friend Dominic, who is Jade's son. They have similar passions and would eventually share an apartment together in Newcrest.
As for his parents, they spent much of their adulthood travelling. Paolo had to go to sporting events all over the world, and even after he retired they made a habit of going somewhere new and warm every winter. Celina was able to pick up her painting tools and take it on the road with him. It helped keep her inspired and made her work more creative. It was much later in life that they both settled back down in Windenburg, the town that brought them together. Even in their marriage they still kept a good amount of independence, they both had their own friend groups to celebrate with. And most importantly, they always made time to visit their son.
