During their visit to Europe, many speculated that the couple was on their way to being engaged.

The trip was peppered with romantic moments, but fans were convinced a proposal was inevitable when Artem introduced his love to his parents.

Nikki opened up about her Meet The Parents moment on her podcast, telling fans: ‘They are the sweetest people in the world… Overall, Artem’s parents did say they liked me a lot, which is amazing.’

Chemistry! The pair first met while partners on Dancing With The Stars, but their connection went on to be much more serious

The pair first met while partners on Dancing With The Stars back in 2017, but their connection went on to be much more serious.

While their initial chemistry was more than clear, the retired wrestler said she never expected things to get serious.

‘I never would have thought even when Artem and I were dancing… we had incredible chemistry, but I never once thought that he would one day be my boyfriend,’ she told People earlier this year. 

‘We had such an amazing friendship and when we went on our first date, it was still kind of in that friend zone.’

But by May 2019 the couple had taken their relationship far beyond the dance floor, publicly seen smooching for the first time after a lunch date at Joan’s On Third.

And though things have seemed more than serious since then, as recently as last October Bella said she thinks the idea of marriage and a family is bit ‘scary.’ 

‘Marriage and babies are really scary for me right now,’ she told E! News at the 20th-anniversary celebration of WWE Friday Night Smackdown last fall. 

Nikki and Artem’s engagement comes two years after the end of the WWE Diva’s relationship with wrestler/actor John Cena.

It was a rocky run for the pair, who dated for six years before breaking up in summer of 2018.

The couple broke off their engagement twice before finally pulling the plug on their relationship.

Nikki said the pair decided to call it quits after some ‘soul-searching alone and together.’

‘After I called off the engagement, we tried to work on our relationship to get back to where it was, and in order to move forward with our wedding,’ Nikki told People at the time of the split.

‘After much time and soul-searching alone and together, we have decided to officially part ways,’ she went on. 

‘I had a beautiful and loving 6-year relationship with a wonderful man,’ she said. ‘I have the utmost respect for John, but I know this is what’s best for me.’

While it took some time for Nikki and John’s relationship to run its course, her romance with Chigvintsev has been sizzling from the start.

Fans can get a closer look at the relationship via Nikki’s reality show.
