Love is in the air for Nikki Bella and her former Dancing With the Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev. The March 24 finale of Total Bellas confirmed that their relationship is blossoming. The episode ended when the pro wrestler hopped on the back of his motorcycle and they went riding off into the sunset together.
Although her twin sister, Brie, is happy living in Arizona, Nikki, 35, made the big decision to move to Los Angeles. She’s clearly enjoying her time there and it has given her and Artem ample time together.
“It’s crazy, I never in my life would’ve thought that like I would’ve had a lot in common with a Russian,” the reality star admitted. “I just feel like this free spirit. Truly like a butterfly out of her cage. I don’t know, I have this new level of excitement,” the WWE queen gushed before zooming off with the dancer on his bike.
Things are definitely looking brighter for Nikki after her split from ex fiancé, John Cena, last April. She added, “I’m ready to really explore new things and people and just really see what certain chemistries are all about.”
Now that their relationship is public, we may be seeing more of the couple on social media. She posted a photo kissing Artem’s cheek on Instagram after the finale aired and fans rallied to support the brunette beauty. “Love you two together, so good to see you happy again Nikki,” one person raved. Someone else wrote, “My heart melts seeing Nikki’s eyes sparkle when looking at Artem.”
The American Ninja Warrior vet even shared a quick video on March 24 of her new beau sipping champagne at Sanctuary Camelback Resort and Spa in Scottsdale. These two obviously make a great match and seem extremely smitten with each other.
Congrats on your new love, Nikki!
