Nikki Bella “DWTS”
Nikki Bella is taking a glance back at her experience dancing with Artem Chigvintsev on “DWTS” (Dancing with the Stars) in 2017 before the pair would spark a romantic relationship.
During the newest episode of “The Bellas Podcast,” the previous WWE star, 36, recalled performing alongside Artem, 38, on Season 25 of the competition series, revealing the more intimate dances were “uncomfortable” as she was engaged to John Cena at the time.
“That’s the crazy thing being with [Artem] now’s there have been none of these feelings in the least .”
“I remember the one thing that was awkward on behalf of me — I do not know if you remember in a number of [the] dance moves — when their leg had to be in between your leg,” Nikki told podcast guest Lisa Vanderpump. “I remember … it had been the primary time a man’s leg, aside from my fiancé’s was in between mine and that I was like, ‘Whoa!’ it had been weird.”
While Lisa, who was on Season 16 of “DWTS” back in 2013, said she grew “very close” to her partner Gleb Savchenko, Nikki admitted she did not have any feelings of attraction toward Artem at the time.
“You definitely get an emotional bond with them because it’s so scary … I’ve never been that nervous before,” Nikki explained. “That’s the crazy thing being with [Artem] now’s there have been none of these feelings in the least .”
Nikki and John Cena’s rollercoaster of a relationship, which lasted six years, ended permanently in summer 2018. Just a couple of months after they broke off their engagement.
The “Total Bellas” star went on so far Artem nearly seven months later. The 2 went public with their relationship in March 2019 and announced their engagement that following January.
A few weeks later, Nikki revealed she was expecting. On July 31, Nikki and Artem welcomed their first child together, a son named Matteo.
