Halle-freakin’-lujah! After what feels like a lifetime of speculation, Nikki Bella finally confirmed her rumored romance with former DWTS partner Artem Chigvintsev. On Wednesday, March 27, the brunette beauty, 35, sat down with his twin sister, Brie Bella, for the first episode of their highly anticipated podcast, “The Bellas Podcast.”

During a scintillating round of what the ladies call “Kill A Rumor,” Nikki set the record straight once and for all. “Yes, we are dating. Yes, I spend the night at his house.” Yas, girl! Spill. That. Tea. “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,” she continued.

Are you freaking out? Because we are. Don’t get too excited, though. Unfortunately, the pair aren’t technically official. “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, before adding,“Yeah, we make out. What else? He’s a great kisser.”

Ugh. OK … so, doesn’t that mean that Nikki and Artem, 36, are just friends with benefits? We suppose that’s better than nothing, right? Plus, given their undeniable chemistry, we have no doubt that they’ll take things to the next level soon enough. Perhaps it’s Nikki’s feelings for her ex-fiancé, John Cena, that are holding her back.  

“No matter what, the next time I see him with someone it’s gonna kill me,” Nikki admitted in a recent teaser for Total Bellas. “I still have a long way to go, but honestly, I’m ready for a new me. I need it … I just want to move forward.” We’re ready for a new you, too, Nikki. Keep thriving (and making out with Artem).
