A Colorado woman who was dating Christopher Watts - the man accused of killing his pregnant wife and daughters in August - reportedly labeled him "a liar" during an interview Thursday where she detailed how the two met and began what, unknowingly to her, was an extramarital affair.

Nichol Kessinger told the Post she started dating Watts in July. "He lied about everything".

She described Watts as being "very softspoken" and told The Post that she "believed him" when he said he was the father of two girls and was nearing the close of his divorce proceedings.

Earlier this month, Watts, 33, pleaded guilty to nine felony counts, including three first-degree murder charges, in the deaths of his wife, Shanann, 34, and two daughters, Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, prosecutors said.

She told the newspaper that when she met Watts at Anadarko Petroleum, where they both worked, she noticed he wasn't wearing a wedding ring.

"I was very confused why the media was at his house", Kessinger said.

"It got to a point that he was telling me so many lies that I eventually told him that I did not want to speak to him again until his family was found", she said.

It wasn't until she saw the story on the news that she found out that he was still married, his wife of six years was15 weeks pregnant and Shan'ann's wallet and purse were still in the home, she said.

The day Shanann and the couple's daughters went missing, Watts texted Kessinger to tell her that his family was "gone", and said that his wife had not returned from a playdate with the children.

The report says she called what he did senseless and horrific.

On August 15, Watts was arrested for the murders.

They started seeing each other four or five times a week, but Kessinger said she insisted they take it slow as his daughters adjusted to the split. With a pregnant woman and two children missing, I was going to do anything that I could, ' she said.

Kessinger said that after his arrest she never doubted that he killed them.

Kessinger called the Weld County Sheriff's Office and met with FBI investigators.

Watts pleaded guilty to the murders last week and will be sentenced to life in prison on Monday, Nov. 19 if the judge accepts his plea deal.

In an unsealed court affidavit, police alleged that Watts was having an affair - a claim he initially denied. But he told police that he strangled her in "a rage" when he discovered she had strangled their two daughters after he sought a separation.
