After months of rumors, WWE star Nikki Bella is finally confirming her relationship with “Dancing with the Stars” partner Artem Chigvintsev.
On Sunday, Nikki posted a pic with her new beau, writing, “Well after that season finale . First thing I’ll be talking about this Wednesday.”
Bella will be opening about their relationship on her sister’s podcast on Wednesday.
In the season finale of “Total Bellas,” Nikki teased while hopping on Artem’s motorcycle, “I just feel like this free spirit. Truly like a butterfly out of her cage. I don’t know. I have this new level of excitement. I’m just having a lot of fun. And I feel like, the first time ever, I’m focusing on me. It’s crazy. I never in my life would’ve thought that, like, I would’ve had a lot in common with a Russian. I’m ready to really explore new things and people and just really see what certain chemistries are all about.”
Nikki and Artem recently packed on the PDA on the streets of Los Angeles. Last month, Nikki told “Extra” that she was looking for someone with a “good personality.” Watch!
On the same episode, Nikki announced that she is retiring from the WWE. While having dinner with her family, the 35-year-old said, “I just feel like I’m too old for that travel, so I realized like, why am I doing this — I don’t feel good.”
“I really am ready to hang up the jersey. Like, I can say it fully,” Nikki continued. “Here’s to closing one chapter and the next one opening.”
