Former pro wrestler Nikki Bella cherishes every moment spent with her two most important male figures. The 37-year-old shared a picture of her fiancé, Artem Chigvintsev getting cozy with their son, Matteo.

"Total Bellas" star Nikki Bella is delighted to have Artem Chigvintsev back home following his big win in the 29th season of "Dancing with the Stars."

The retired wrestler shared a picture of her fiancé kissing their son, Matteo Chigvintsev, in a memorable father-son moment. The photo, posted to her Instagram stories on Sunday, featured Artem holding the tot affectionately as he planted a kiss on his head.

Artem donned a blue denim shirt, complete with a red head warmer and a silver wristwatch, while the 4-month-old looked cozy in his brown hoodie.

The pic represented one of many heartwarming posts Nikki has shared since Artem's return from "DWTS," where he took home the mirror ball trophy, alongside his dance partner, Kaitlyn Bristowe.

The former wrestler and reality star has been candid about missing her fiancé during his time on the dance competition show and its effect on herself and Matteo.


During an appearance on "Tamron Hall Show," alongside her sister, Brie Bella, the WWE star recounted how convenient it was for her to push Artem out to participate in "DWTS." 

However, once he left, she experienced her moments of regrets upon realizing how much she needed him by her side, especially after welcoming a new baby. She and her son endured months without him, which was hard on them.

The mother of one ended her relationship with WWE champion John Cena, in 2018, due to his refusal to have kids.

Notwithstanding her misgivings, Nikki showed her support for the Russian dancer during his run on the show. Afterward, she celebrated his victory with a heartfelt post on Instagram, accompanied by the cutest video ever. The video featured Nikki cozying in bed with her son, Matteo, and Brie's son, Buddy.

The trio appeared in high spirits as the pro wrestler sang a celebratory rhyme to the kids in celebration of her fiance's victory. She concluded the video with special congratulations to Artem, and his dance partner, for winning the famed mirror ball.


Although Nikki's fiancé left for the show barely months after their child's birth, bringing home the mirror ball might be worth their time apart. For Nikki, who always wanted to build her own family, finally reuniting with Artem gave her the opportunity to do so.

Fans may recall that the mother of one ended her relationship with WWE champion John Cena, in 2018, due to his refusal to have kids and start a family with her.

She hooked up with the Russian dancer following her split from Cena, and before long, the duo welcomed Matteo, born in July 2020. The lovebirds were glad to welcome the child successfully, despite the earlier scare of a heart condition. The trio has since enjoyed the love and affection between them, which would only deepen once Artem and Nikki legalize their union.
