Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev met on the set of Dancing With The Stars. He was her pro, but she was also involved with John Cena at the time. When she called off her marriage with Cena, it wasn’t too long before she ended up with her DWTS dance instructor.

The couple have a child, Matteo, but they haven’t tied the knot. Of course, the pandemic is to blame for the fact that they haven’t officially been married.

The Pretty Messed Up podcast, hosted by Dancing With The Stars’ Cheryl Burke, recently invited the Bella Twins on the show. Nikki Bella dished about when they might finally have wedding bells in the Bella Army. Thanksgiving seems possible at this point, because they want a packed dance floor.

“We would love to do Thanksgiving of this year. It’s such a great weekend, we want to do Napa Valley, but we haven’t like set [the date] in stone because I just told Artem — I want people to get on the dance floor and dance and feel like we’re in the 1920s and like just have fun and let loose.”


When it comes to how soon they want to start making those plans, Nikki Bella said that conversations are on-going. They might set a date in a few weeks.

“We both were talking about this yesterday. We feel like in a few weeks, we could set it in stone and start planning. We know we can plan it quick, so I’m not even worried about that.”

The pandemic caused tons of wedding ceremonies to get postponed, creating a drought in the marriage market. Now that things seem to be winding down in terms of COVID-19, those wedding photographers and DJ’s are bound to start seeing their schedule book up fast. Nikki and Artem might want to get on things if they want to secure a spot in the upcoming rush for nuptials.
