The "Total Bellas" star Nikki Bella shared a picture of her kissing her fiancé Artem Chigvintsev to her Instagram story as the two stole a moment alone for themselves.
Nikki Bella took to Instagram to post a story featuring her sharing an alone moment with her fiancé and professional dancer Artem Chigvintsev. With a gorgeous view in the background and a glass of wine in her hand, it made for a special moment.
The WWE star shared a sweet kiss with her Russian fiancé and father of her 6-month-old son and posted it for her 9.7 million Instagram followers to see the adorable smooch.
Chigvintsev and Bella met when they were paired up to compete in season 25 of "Dancing with the Stars" in 2017. Bella was still engaged to John Cena at the time, but after splitting up in 2018, Bella was back on the market.
The dancer and WWE star officially started dancing in July 2019 and got engaged in November 2019. Very open about the different aspects of their relationship, Bella shared:
"Like, I have never met anyone who’s so supportive and I have no fear that he’s ever going to leave me for my imperfections, which is so amazing.”
The Russian dancing star also has some remarkable skills in the kitchen, which he has honed over the time he spent at home during the quarantine. Bella encouraged her fiancé to share more about his cooking on social media.
Chigvintsev has decided to enroll in cooking school to become a qualified chef. He will be attending The Culinary Institute of America to pursue his culinary dreams despite his doubts about being good enough.
The mom of one recently opened up about her relationship with Chigvintsev whilst competing together on the dancing reality television show revealing that it wasn't all moonshine and roses.
Chigvintsev was a drill sergeant and didn't take it easy on his partner what so ever. Bella shared that she considered quitting throughout the process. She commented on her fiancé's teaching style, saying:
“It would make me feel really off. And it would just be his tone. It was hard.”
Sharing their baby, Matteo, who was born July 31, 2020, the engaged couple is not immune from struggles. Bella shared that they are in couples therapy to work some things out.
The Russian's tendency to have a serious tone when stressed is one reason that the couple sought out professional help and the need for some help when it comes to their communication.
Regardless of the ups and downs of their relationship, Bella and Chigvintsev choose to work through it, and by the looks of what they are posting on social media, they are also making time for one another.
The fiery Russian dancer paired with the feisty WWE star is bound to have some sparks when put together, but the couple is supportive of one another and willing to invest in their relationship to make it work.
