WHERE MATTEO GOT HIS NAME

Artemovich was actually named after Nikki’s trainer’s son. She revealed how her trainer had spoken about his son, Matteo’s strength when the “Total Bellas” star was still pregnant.

WHY NIKKI CHOSE THE NAME

The trainer proudly shared how his son always got up when knocked down. Hearing the boy’s name, the reality star recalled getting chills and when she got home she told her fiancé the name she wanted if they had a son.

WHAT MATTEO’S NAME MEANS

The boy’s name means “God's gift" but is spelled with two “Ts” so that Nikki could honor her Italian heritage. The twin’s mother is of Italian descent.
