Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev: A Timeline of Their Relationship

After being paired on Dancing With the Stars, WWE star Nikki Bella landed a knockout fiance, ballroom dancer Artem Chigvintsev.

They married in Paris on August 26, 2022, after three years of dating.

Who is Artem Chigvintsev?

Artem Chigvintsev is a professional ballroom dancer on Dancing With The Stars, which he won in 2020 with Kaitlyn Bristowe from The Bachelor.

Artem previously appeared on the UK’s Strictly Come Dancing in 2010, where he danced.

He instantly successfully won the glitterball trophy with his first celebrity student, Kara Tointon. Artem dated the former EastEnders star for three years before they met on the dance floor. Artem later dated Australian actress and singer Holly Valance, TV presenter Fern Britton, and TVsoap star Natalie Gumede. Artem left Strictly Come Dancing in 2013 due to a change in the production team.

In 2014, he was cast as a backing dancer on Dancing With The Stars before being promoted to the pro dancer in 2015. Since then, he has collaborated with Lea Thompson, Patti LaBelle, Mischa Barton, Maureen McCormick, and Nancy Kerrigan.

When did Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev meet?

Artem has had Bella since 2018. They met on Dancing With The Stars in 2017 when they were paired up together. Nikki initially admitted to sleeping with Artem while maintaining that they were in a relationship.

They’re dancing their way through life! Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev’s whirlwind romance has enraged fans after the professional wrestler’s broken engagement to ex-John Cena.

Us Weekly confirmed that Bella and Cena are dating and have been seeing each other for “a while”, nearly seven months after they split for good in July 2018. They first met in 2017 when they were paired up on season 25 of the reality TV dance competition.

The Total Divas alum and Trainwreck actor were still going strong at the time, with Cena even assuming Chigvintsev would choreograph his first dance with his then-fiancée at their wedding.

“As far as dancing goes, I believe he’ll probably teach me my first dance,” Cena told E! News in November 2017. “So hopefully I’ll be able to pick up some pointers from him there.”

Bella confirmed her romance with Chigvintsev during an episode of Total Bellas in March 2019. After months of playing coy about their relationship, she quickly went Instagram official with the dancer the following day. “Well, after that season finale, the first thing I’ll be talking about this Wednesday,” she captioned a photo of herself kissing her beau on the cheek at the time.

Bella gushed about her newfound happiness as cameras panned to her jumping on the back of Chigvintsev’s motorcycle during the finale. “I just have this free spirit feeling.” Like a butterfly freed from its cage. I’m still determining. I’m experiencing a surge of energy. I’m just having a good time. And I feel like I’m focusing on myself for the first time.

It’s insane. “I would never have guessed that I would have so much in common with a Russian,” she said. “I’m eager to learn about new things and people, as well as to discover what certain chemistries are all about.”

However, the couple quickly turned their casual fling into a serious relationship, and Artem proposed in November 2019.

Artem announced on Instagram.

He wrote alongside a romantic photo of himself and Nikki: “You are the most wonderful thing to have ever happened to me.

“I’m so excited for what’s to come; I love you more than anything, and I appreciate you saying yes.”

She stated: “I’m looking forward to 2020 and the next decade with you, @theartemc. In November, I said yes in France!

“We’ve been trying to keep it private, but we really wanted to express our New Year’s Eve excitement!”

Nikki and Artem married in Paris on August 26, 2022.

“We said I DO, can’t wait to share the rest of the life journey with you all when our four-part special event, ‘Nikki Bella Says I Do,’ premieres on @eentertainment. #NikkiBellaSaysIDo,” Nikki captioned a post on her Instagram page.

According to E! News, Nikki Bella Says I Do will be a four-part special that follows the couple as they plan their wedding.

As they held their hands over Nikki’s flowers, a blurred image of their wedding attire could be seen in the background.

The bride and groom were hugged as they looked out at the Paris scenery, with the Eiffel Tower in the distance.

They averted their gaze from the camera, revealing only a sliver of their outfits.

The couple had previously postponed their wedding because they did not want a socially distant ceremony.

Artem and Nikki began dating months after she ended her relationship with fellow WWE star John Cena, weeks before they were set to marry.

Artem and Nikki have one baby boy named MatteoArtem and Nikki have one baby boy named Matteo.
