Talented dancer Artem Chigvintsev can't contain his joy as he took to social media to reveal that he and his fiancee Nikki Bella have a child on the way.

"Dancing with the Stars" alum, Artem Chigvintsev, has announced that he and his partner, ex-wrestler Nikki Bella, would be having a child.

Artem Chigvintsev is a Russian born dancer who reportedly started taking dancing lessons from his mother at a very tender age.

When the dancer clocked 15, he decided to leave home to undergo more dance training in countries like Italy, Germany, and England. Artem later moved to the states where he began to dance with Giselle Peacock, a champion ballroom dancer.

The duo got married in 2004 and divorced each other a year later. Artem was also in a short relationship with Carrie Ann, a judge on the DWTS.


In 2005, he competed in the first season of "So You Think You Can Dance." Artem was later cast as the choreographer for the show's second season. 

His relationship with Nikki Bella can be traced as far back as January 2019.


The famous dancer then started dating the retired wrestler, and Artem recently took to Instagram to reveal that he would be having his first child soon with Nikki Bella.

The father-to-be uploaded the image of the caption, "I'm going to be a dad." He followed the post with another taken from an ultrasound, which clearly showed a baby's form. The post came with a simple, joyful caption

"We are so excited."


The post came shortly after his fiancée, Nikki, and her twin, Brie, declared that they were both expecting. Brie Bella is married to WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan. 

Artem Chigvintsev's relationship with Nikki Bella can be traced as far back as January 2019 when multiple sources stated that the pair were going to give love a try.

This came just nine months after Nikki Bella confirmed her breakup with WWE champion John Cena. The two were together for six years and engaged to be married before their breakup.

In March 2019, Artem confirmed their relationship at the "Total Bellas" season finale and later posted a sizzling picture that featured him and his significant other lip locked.
