WWE star Nikki Bella landed a stunning fiancé, ballroom dancer Artem Chigvintsev, after they were paired on Dancing With the Stars.
After three years of dating, they finally tied the knot on August 26, 2022 in Paris.
Who is Artem Chigvintsev?
Artem Chigvintsev is a professional dancer on Dancing With The Stars, which he won in 2020 with The Bachelor’s Kaitlyn Bristowe.
Artem previously danced with Strictly Come Dancing in the UK, having joined in 2010.
He shot to instant success, winning the Glitterball trophy with his first celebrity student, Kara Tointon.
The couple also found success off the dance floor – as Artem dated the former EastEnders star for three years.
In the years that followed, Artem was also partnered with Australian actress and singer Holly Valance, TV presenter Fern Britton and soap star Natalie Gumede.
Artem left Strictly in 2013 due to the changing production team.
In 2014 he landed a spot as a backup dancer with Dancing With The Stars before being promoted to pro dancer in 2015.
Since then he has been partnered with Lea Thompson, Patti LaBelle, Mischa Barton, Maureen McCormick and Nancy Kerrigan.
When did Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev meet?
Bella has been dating Artem since 2018.
They met while working together on Dancing With The Stars in 2017.
Nikki first confirmed that she was sleeping with Artem and insisted they were in an open relationship.
However, the couple soon turned their casual fling into the real deal — and Artem proposed in November 2019.
Artem announced the news on Instagram.
He captioned a romantic picture of him and Nikki: “You are the best thing that has ever happened to me.
“So excited for what’s to come, love you more than anything and thank you for saying yes.”
She wrote: “Excited for 2020 and the next decade with you @theartemc. I said yes in France in November!
“We tried to keep it a secret but really wanted to share our excitement for the new year!”
On August 26, 2022, Nikki and Artem tied the knot in Paris.
Confirming the news, Nikki captioned a post on her Instagram page, saying, “We said I do can’t wait to share the entire journey with you all as our four part special event ‘Nikki Bella says I do ‘ @eentertainment premieres. #NikkiBellaSaysIDo.”
Lute! News, “Nikki Bella Says I Do” will be a four-part special that will follow the couple throughout the wedding planning process.
A blurred image of their wedding attire could be seen in the background as they held hands over Nikki’s flowers.
The second picture showed the newlyweds looking out over the Parisian countryside as they embraced in an embrace, with the Eiffel Tower in the distance.
They looked away from the camera and only showed a glimpse of their outfits.
Previously, the two postponed their wedding as they didn’t want a socially distanced ceremony.
Artem and Nikki started dating months after their split from fellow WWE star John Cena and weeks before they were supposed to walk down the aisle.
Do Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev have children?
The couple have a little boy named Matteo.
Nikki gave birth to her first child in late July 2020 — just a day before twin sister Brie welcomed their own baby boy.
Nikki later revealed that she and Artem fathered their son in the guest room of Brie’s house.
