Nikki Bella from Total Bellas and her fiancé Artem Chigvintsev from Dancing with the Stars have decided to go to couples therapy. Fans are curious about what’s happening with this famous pair.
Now that DWTS is over, Artem can move his attention over to Nikki and their son, rather than being consumed by a dancing competition. Artem and his dancing partner, former The Bachelorette lead Kaitlyn Bristowe, won the competition. They took home the Mirrorball Trophy on Monday night. This was an exciting accomplishment for both of them! Kaitlyn has been wanting to compete on the show since 2015, and this was Artem’s first win.
This week, Nikki and her sister Brie appeared on The Tamron Hall Show. During their Wednesday appearance, Nikki discussed how it was difficult when Artem left to film DWTS. This was because he left just months after they welcomed their son, Matteo. “I was so supportive and pushing him out the door to go do Dancing and then I realized once he left…‘Oh my gosh, what did I do? Like I need him.’ And so it was really hard,” the 37-year-old told the talk show host. Nikki’s answer led Tamron Hall to ask her if she and hubby Artem had thought about going to couples therapy. “We’re going to start after the season and it’s mainly just to be amazing parents and knowing how to balance parent life out and also our own relationship,” the new mom said of her relationship with the 38-year-old professional dancer. She continued: “Artem and I, from the beginning, want to know: How do we balance this for Matteo and for our relationship?” Now that they have a child, Nikki and Artem want to make sure their Total Bellas relationship is not put on the back burner. A healthy relationship is important for the parents and the child.
They met in 2017 after they were partnered together for DWTS. A couple of years later, they reconnected, shortly after Nikki broke up with her former fiancé, John Cena. They became an official couple in July of 2019 and Nikki got engaged to Artem that November, while the couple was in France. In January, Nikki announced that she and Artem were expecting their first child together. Nikki gave birth to their son Matteo this past summer, in late July.
Nikki recently got candid about her experience with postpartum depression. She opened up during an episode of her podcast, “The Bellas Podcast.” She revealed that she refused to get help since she was used to handling problems all by herself. However, after her sister asked her how she was doing, Nikki completely broke down. The new mom Nikki Bella needed help and is thankfully doing much better now. Check out Total Bellas to see Nikki and her sister Brie’s motherhood journeys.
Total Bellas airs Thursdays at 9 pm ET on E!.
