Going back to their roots! On July 17, Nikki Bella announced to the world that Artem Chigvintsev is officially her boyfriend, and afterward, the celeb couple released a steamy YouTube video of them dancing to prove their amazing chemistry.
The 35-year-old and her beau, 37, danced to Rita Ora’s “Let Me Love You,” totally reminding us of their Dancing With the Stars days, except now they’re way more than just friends. If those sexy dance moves don’t prove it, we’re not sure what does.
The brunette beauty also took to the “The Bellas Podcast” to share the happy news. “We’re boyfriend and girlfriend,” she said. “We’re in a relationship!” It looks like the former wrestler couldn’t be happier after sharing the news. She said she was “smiling ear to ear” when she revealed Artem is her beau, 37. “Why do I feel like I’m in high school right now?” she joked.
She also explained why she was so keen on naming her YouTube video “official.” TBH, it couldn’t be more appropriate. “I literally was joking with him that I wanted the title of our dance to be ‘#Official’ because everyone was writing on social media lately like, ‘#NoLabels, just be #Official,’” the brunette beauty said. “So, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m totally gonna play that up, what everyone’s talking about on social media.’ And then [sister] Brie [Bella] reminded me that that was very corny to name a dance ‘#Official.’
The couple first sparked dating rumors in January, however, it wasn’t until late March when they confirmed they were casually seeing each other. “Yes, we are dating. Yes, I spend the night at his house,” she explained on her podcast at the time. “Yes, we have date lunches at Joan’s on Third and we like to get food for his house — or should I say, produce from the farmer’s markets. So, let’s consider this rumor killed.” They’ve come a long way!
