Nikki Bella is explaining her decision to walk herself down the aisle at her wedding. The former pro wrestler married "Dancing with the Stars" pro Artem Chigvintsev in a romantic ceremony in Paris, France in August. The 38-year-old opted to not have anyone give her away on her big day and now, she is explaining that decision to Brides. "I walked myself down the aisle because I'm about to be 39 and I don't need to be given away," she told the outlet. "I’m a mother. I'm an entrepreneur." Artem and Nikki were first romantically linked in 2018. The pair welcomed their first child, Mateo, in 2020.
