Nikki Bella is feeling the love from her boyfriend, Artem Chigvintsev, who paid an adorable tribute to her on the star's 36th birthday. The "Dancing With The Stars" pro went public with his affection for his main squeeze on his social media Thursday. Sharing a sweet snap of Nikki Bella in her element, Chigvintsev pulled out all the stops for her special day. The duo, who recently revealed they were traveling Europe together, began dating following her split with then-fiancé John Cena.
His Beautiful Tribute:
In his post, the "Total Bellas" star's beauty is on full display. Nikki Bella looks gorgeous wearing a bold red dress while riding on a carousel in Paris and showing off her signature pearly whites. "The happiest birthday to my beautiful Nicole may this day be very special filled with lots of love," he wrote. Revealing just how deep his affection for the star is, he added, "I love you so so much." Fans are loving Artem's heartfelt message and giving him major props. "aw that’s so beautiful artem ❤️🔥" commented a follower. "Awwww....the sweetest! Her soul is smiling 😍😍" replied another.
How Serious Are They?
Nikki Bella recently opened up about her relationship with her former "DWTS" partner, revealing to E! News that she feels totally comfortable with him. "I get to just be me," she told the outlet. "It's kind of like my soul gets to have no filter, no makeup. Like, I fully live in my truth with him." She's not the only one who's a fan of her boyfriend. Her close friend and fellow "Total Divas" star Nattie Neidhart is said to really like Artem for Nikki. According to E! she thinks he's "really sweet" and a "total gentleman." The two confirmed their relationship earlier this year and months later, Artem dropped the "soulmate" line. Taking to social media to share a couple's photo with Nikki from the Nickelodeon Teen Choice Awards red carpet, his captioned gained plenty of attention. "You are my rock, my number one, the good ending to a bad day and the best start to a new day, you are my soul mate," he wrote.
Ending Her Engagement:
Prior to her romance with Artem Chigvintsev, Nikki Bella was engaged to John Cena and the two had a May 2018 wedding date. The duo never made it down the aisle and revealed their split to shocked fans the month before their wedding. “While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” the wrestling couple said in a joint statement. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives." On what would have been their wedding day, Nikki and John both reflected on their former relationship. “If you choose to keep moving, no matter how low the road takes you, it will eventually begin to climb back up. #NeverGiveUp,” Cena tweeted. “Learn from your mistakes. A life of regret is a life unfulfilled,” he added. Meanwhile, Nikki Bella took to Instagram with a post that read, “Chin up princess or the crown slips."
