Nico Tortorella and his spouse, Bethany C. Meyers, welcomed their first child one year ago. This has greatly altered their lives, and Tortorella has encapsulated his journey to fatherhood through music. His first album, Born, is coming soon, and the new single, "Grapefruit," is available now. (see below)

World Beyond and Younger actor Tortorella announced their latest venture on social media, stating that the album "is my heart and soul laid bare, tracing the path of fatherhood through lyric and melody."

Listen to the single below. The album can be pre-saved or pre-ordered here and the music video produced by Rocco Tortorella will drop soon. (Actually, it premiered as this article was being published) see below.

Another milestone in Tortorella's career was the publication of their first children's book, Olivette Is You (all of it is YOU), in 2023. Written by Tortorella and illustrated by Melissa Kashiwagi the book encourages readers to be anything they want. The picture book shows readers that “you don’t have to choose who or what to be; you are already everything.”

Recently, Tortorella appeared in Binged to Death, a comedy thriller that is available on VOD on Prime Video. This movie follows two women who abduct their favorite reality TV series couple after they announce their break up, hoping to rekindle their favorite TV romance.

The actor also starred in the Apple TV+ series City on Fire as William. The crime drama follows events after an NYU student is shot in Central Park. This series also stars Fear TWD actor Omid Abtahi.

They are also well known for their roles in Scream 4, Odd Thomas, Trespass, The Following, Menendez: Blood Brothers and more.
