Former WWE Divas champion Nikki Bella and former Dancing With The Stars pro Artem Chigvintsev are officially engaged. The news came from Artem’s Twitter account who posted two photos of them together with the text, “You are the best thing that has ever happened to me. So excited for what’s to come I love you more then anything and thank you for saying Yes.”
Nikki officially broke off her engagement with John Cena in the Summer of 2018 just over a year after Cena proposed to her in front of thousands of people at WrestleMania. People close to Nikki said that she called off the wedding after Cena once again had a U-turn over having children. Cena then went on the TODAY show and said he was ready to be the father of her children but it was a little too late.
Bella was a competitor on Dancing With The Stars in late 2017 and was paired up with Chigvintsev. After she was eliminated from the competition in week seven, there were rumors that the two were a little bit more than just dancing partners even though Nikki was still in a relationship with Cena at the time. Nikki and Artem then came out publicly with their relationship last year.
This will be the second marriage for Nikki, who married her high school sweetheart at the age of 20, a marriage which was annulled three years later. The Russian-American dancer was married once, to his dancing partner Giselle Peacock, from 2004 to 2005. He then dated with dancer Kara Tointon and Dancing With The Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba. His last partner was actress Torrey DeVitto, who plays a doctor on the NBC medical drama Chicago Med.
