The newlyweds originally met when they were partners on season 25 of Dancing with the Stars in 2017, but at that time, Nikki was engaged to John Cena. Following the breakup of her relationship with the WWE star in 2018, Nikki and Artem began dating (January 2019) and then later that year, in November, got engaged on a trip to Paris.
Before the wedding could take place, however, Nikki became pregnant with the couple’s son Matteo, who was born in July 2020, and what was to have been a Thanksgiving wedding was postponed.
Now, in early 2023, their love story will be told when the four-part Nikki Bella Says I Do series premieres on E! and all the details will be revealed of what went into finally getting the couple down the aisle.
This major moment is not without challenges as the bride and groom navigate parenthood as they plan the wedding, bachelorette party, find a dress, tuxedo, choose the right venue all while they hold on to hope that Artem’s family from Russia will make it to this event of a lifetime.
To find out whether or not the couple perform a special choreographed dance at their wedding you will have to wait until the special airs, but Nikki did tell Parade earlier this year that she and Artem hadn’t done much dancing since Mateo was born—and she does want to get back to it.
“I told Artem that when we both slow down, if ever, that’s one thing I want to bring back into our relationship because I feel very fortunate that I’m with a professional dancer. I have to say as a woman there’s nothing that makes me feel more feminine than when I’m dancing with Artem and just having my man have full control of me. It’s like crazy sexy. So, I had told him that is something that I want to bring back in because I feel small and sexy and girly and flirty and I need that because I’m very dominating, and I’m a tomboy so it’s those little things as a woman that I just love.”
