Nikki Bella has announced her secret engagement to former Dancing with the Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev.
The WWE champion has finally said ‘yes’ after Artem proposed to her in France a few months ago. Bella confirmed the news on Instagram with a picture of her kissing her fiance.
She captioned it, “Excited for 2020 and the next decade with you @theartemc. I said yes in France in November! We have been trying to keep it a secret but really wanted to share our excitement for the New Year!”
The 36-year-old was previously linked with John Cena. However, they called off their marriage two years ago.
In a recent interview with Health magazine, Nikki Bella opened up about her relationship with Chigvintsev. She said, “Artem is the first person I’ve been with where I feel like I can be Nicole and never fear he’s going to leave me for it. We all have a little crazy in us, and he loves my crazy.”
Further adding, “He’s the sweetest soul you’ll ever meet. Everyone will tell you how relaxed they feel around him. It’s his aura. I need that because I am a firecracker — he’s my zen!”
The wrestler also mentioned that she was scared to invite Artem to her TV sereis Total Bellas due to the backlash she received with her public relationship with John Cena. She said, “After such a public breakup, I was scarred.”
“So, at first, I was timid to film this relationship,” she added. “But Artem is our newest cast member. What’s different is that I know where we are at with one another.”
The 36-year-old and Chignivtsev were paired together on season 25 of Dancing With the Stars in 2017. But the two were eliminated six couples in.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
