Artem Chigvintsev is most known for his appearance on “Dancing with the Stars.”  It’s been weeks since fans last saw their beloved dancer onscreen after Artem pulled out of the show’s live tour citing “unexpected health issues.” Now his fiance, Nikki Bella has come out to share an update.

Nikki shared with PageSix details about Artem’s road to recovery. She told the outlet at the Fanatics Super Bowl 2022 party in Los Angeles that “He[Artem] still has pneumonia. Monday or Tuesday we’ll get [another] update,” She further added,

“He gets his lungs rescanned and we’ll find out if they’re better. The swellings gone down so, fingers crossed. We’re praying really hard that we get good news.”

Artem previously announced via social media on Jan. 20 that he had to  drop out of the “Dancing With the Stars: Live!” tour due citing “unexpected health.” At the time, the professional dancer said, “I had another X-ray done yesterday, and it came back still positive for pneumonia,” He added, “So I just got another set of antibiotics. This is of course number two.”


Nikki told Page Six on Saturday that while Chigvintsev is in recovery, he’s officially on babysitting duty along with Bryan Danielson as she and her twin sister Brie Bella party it up in Los Angeles for Super Bowl LVI festivities. Nikki shares 1-year-old Matteo with Chigvintsev, while Brie and Danielson are parents to Birdie, 4, and Buddy, 1.

“It’s daddy daycare this weekend … no kids, spicy margs, no babies. Mamas gone wild, daddy daycare.”
