Abraham is very secretive regarding his love life, and thus hasn’t talked about any girls he might have dated since the launch of his acting career.
However, it is known that he was in a relationship with a girl named Nicole while shooting for the series “ER”; while giving an interview, Abraham was asked about what his girlfriend thinks about him kissing actresses on the set of “ER”, to which he responded that she actually likes it, and usually comes to watch them kissing on the set so that she could tease them.
