WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella has announced her marriage to Russian professional dancer Artem Chigvinstev – congratulations to the happy couple!
Wedding bells were in the air for Nikki Bella as she officially married Artem Chigvinstev, two-and-a-half years after they first got engaged on 3 January 2020. Moreover, the long-reigning WWE Divas Champion has announced via Instagram that their marriage will be broadcast on the E! Network in a four-part series, Nikki Bella Says I Do:
“We said I DO, can’t wait to share the entire journey with you all when our four-part special event, “Nikki Bella Says I Do,” premieres on @eentertainment. #NikkiBellaSaysIDo”
Bella and Chigvinstev’s relationship was confirmed in January 2019. They’d originally met as dance partners on season 25 of Dancing With The Stars and subsequently went on to have a baby boy in July 2020 named Matteo Artemovich Chigvinstev.
Nikki Bella’s relationship was previously a hot topic with her previous engagement to John Cena. The 16-time World Champion had infamously proposed to her at WrestleMania 33 following their win over The Miz and Maryse. Their wedding was ultimately called off on 15 April 2018, mere weeks before they were due to wed.
A pivotal factor of the Women’s Revolution in WWE, Nikki is a two-time Divas Champion, her second reign of which lasted 301 days to make it the longest in the now-defunct title’s history. She’s since retired from the ring, though a one-off appearance came when she entered the 2022 women’s Royal Rumble match.
