The love developed, flourished and they got married in 2012. Michael and his wife had a very happy marriage with a son, who was born on 9 September 2016. They named their son James.
However, not long after their son was born, Michael’s wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2017. She went through the difficult cancer treatment process for over 18 months and it seemed like she was getting better, but cancer returned in late 2018 and this time it was to take her.

Michael Allio Bachelorette, Katie Thurston
Michael starred in the 17th season of Bachelorette and tried to win the heart of Katie Thurston. Katie was a contestant on the 25th season of The Bachelor and a fan favorite at that. Katie was announced as the Bachelorette in the upcoming 17th season of the show in March 2021.
And according to some gossip sites, Michael lasted long on the show but does not last for the final four. Apparently, his departure had something to do with his son. Whether Katie sent him home to be with his son or he left on his own, finds did not know.
The show might not have started to air, but the profiles of the contestants were out and there were a lot of wikis about Michael that we did not know before. For example, Michael loves 90s R&B music and he makes a “mean plate of Dino Nuggies”.
Also according to his profile, Michael’s ideal woman would be compassionate, empathetic, resilient, not easily offended, having witty and self-deprecating humor. He would also prefer one with strong convictions and who “stands up against ignorance”. And all these features were very much Katie’s strong suit. It was a shame that he had to leave the show for his son.
As predicted, Michael quit in Week 7. As for Katie, she would ultimately choose Blake Moynes and accept his proposal.
