In 2017, the couple rejoined on the set of The Challenge: Invasion of Champions and reconciled, only to split up for the second time. They became buddies and appeared on the Champs Vs. Stars program together. The couple renewed their romance on the set of The Challenge: Champs Vs. Stars, only to accuse one other of infidelity. In December 2019, the couple agreed to put their differences aside, and Zach Nichols planned a Christmas-themed proposal for Jenna Compono, who accepted.
They had planned to marry in February 2021, but they had to delay owing to the Coronavirus epidemic. Jenna said during an interview:
“We don’t know what the world will be like next year, so our wedding isn’t even certain. We didn’t want to put our lives on wait for something that wasn’t certain.”
They will marry in a private ceremony in Michigan in March 2021. Anthony, their first child, was born on September 2, 2021, at 8:52 p.m.
On April 2, 2022, the couple married in New York in front of their family, friends, and their 6-month-old baby. They then had their reception at the Sand Castle.
