Just one day after Nikki Bella was spotted leaving Artem Chigvintsev’s humble abode, the Total Bellas star, 35, took to Instagram Live to share a video with her rumored beau, 36. The question is, however, are the former Dancing with the Stars partners actually dating or just pals who happen to have serious chemistry? Let’s investigate.

Well, for starters, Artem popped up on Nikki’s Insta in order to help promote the new episode of her hit reality series. Ahead of the show, the brunette beauty told her fans that she had “a friend” joining her. A friend?! Come on, girl. “I have a special guest who had a really fun Sunday fun day with me. He’s gonna tell you to also tune in to Total Bellas,” she said.

Following her little intro, Nikki and Artem proceeded to have an adorable conversation about their day — which included ramen and non-alcoholic beer. Apparently, Nikki is super picky about restaurants. So much so, that the professional wrestler will only dine at establishments with an “A” rating. That said, she and Artem sat down somewhere with a “B.” Hmmm, making sacrifices for love, perhaps?

Even if Artem and Nikki haven’t officially declared their courtship, the evidence is pretty stacked against them. “They got together for dinner and the chemistry from the dance floor came right back,” a source previously told Life & Style. “They hit it off. They’re taking it slow, but they’re really into each other.”

Well, seeing as the dates haven’t slowed down since the pair was first spotted rekindling their “friendship,” we suspect it’s a only a matter of time before some cutesy PDA snapshots pop up. As much as we loved the idea of Nikki getting with Bachelor alum Peter Kraus, it’s clear that she and Artem have the most endgame potential. We’re definitely rooting for them!
