Too sweet! Nikki Bella gushed about her boyfriend, Artem Chigvintsev, and admitted that she thinks he’ll be a phenomenal dad one day. She made the adorable confession to her twin sister, Brie, during “The Bellas Podcast” on July 3. It sounds like she’s completely smitten with the Dancing With the Stars pro.
“And can we just say how cute is Artem with Birdie?” Nikki, 35, began the conversation, referring to her beau’s sweet repertoire with her 2-year-old niece. “They’re very cute together,” Brie agreed about her daughter. The WWE babe raved on, “And she loves him … he’s going to make an amazing father.”
Brie was shocked by her casual revelation. “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa … You just said he’s going to make an amazing father!” she exclaimed. Nikki quickly backtracked and noted, “Not to me, it could be to anyone.” Brie simply laughed and said, “Oh gosh, here we go!”
The Total Bellas star loves dishing about how unbelievable the Russian athlete is. “He’s an amazing cook, he’s an amazing lover. He does work around the house,” she said during the April 24 podcast episode. After Brie asked if Artem was her “boyfriend,” Nikki simply responded, “No … Because I’m not ready.”
Although Nikki won’t put labels on her relationship yet, she is over-the-moon happy with the stud. “Artem flew all the way from London to Napa Valley to meet me at BottleRock,” Nikki recalled a cute story during their June 6 podcast, which also featured the DWTS pro. “I hadn’t seen Artem for a week and a half and I’ll admit during that week and a half, I realized how much I missed my, beautiful, smart, handsome … dancer.”
“So are you saying you wanted to make him your boyfriend?” Brie questioned her sister. Nikki cheekily responded, “I’m not saying that. What I’m saying is when he was gone I realized how much I missed him, like, tons.” The feeling was mutual because Artem added, “I’d been away for 10 days and that is a long time … I think it’s the first time we’ve been apart for 10 days in quite a while … I did miss you a lot.”
Call it what you want, but these two are a match made in heaven.
