Love is in the air! Less than a week after officially labeling their relationship, Nikki Bella and her boyfriend (gasp), Artem Chigvintsev, look happier than ever. So much so, that the adorable pair has been spending a ton of time together — including stepping out for some late-night grocery shopping in L.A. on Tuesday, July 22.
In the sweet snapshot, the longtime reality star, 35, and her dancer beau, 37, are all smiles while holding hands. Beyond that, we simply can’t ignore the fact that Nikki and Artem look amazing together. Seriously, between her washboard abs and his cut arms, paparazzi photos of them are basically comparable to the cover of a fitness magazine.
As happy as we are for the beautiful duo now, we were a bit worried that Nikki and Artem would never get to this place. After all, the WWE Diva was pretty hesitant to define things with her former Dancing with the Stars partner. “Artem and I are dating. We are not engaged, we are not married, we’re not boyfriend and girlfriend, we don’t say ‘I love you,’” Nikki confessed during a March episode of her podcast. “Yeah, we make out. What else? He’s a great kisser.”
Well, she must have been serious about Artem’s kissing skills because fast forward four months on the very same podcast: “We’re boyfriend and girlfriend. We’re in a relationship!” Nikki gushed to her twin sister, Brie Bella, “Why do I feel like I’m in high school right now?”
If that doesn’t bring a huge smile to your face, we don’t know what will! We are so happy that Nikki and Artem took their time and committed to each other when they were 100 percent ready. Here’s hoping they go the distance.
