Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev have finally married after nearly three years of engagement. They had postponed their wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Dancing With the Stars alum and Total Bellas star held their intimate wedding ceremony in Paris, France, over the weekend.
Both the reality star and the dancer took to Instagram to announce their nuptials, “We said I DO, can’t wait to share the entire journey with you all when our four-part special event.”
She wrote alongside a picture of her hand on top of the dancer’s hand showing off their new wedding rings while the next image showed the newlyweds in each other's arms as they looked at the world.
In another Instagram story, Bella expressed, “We both can’t stop smiling I never want this feeling to end. I will love you forever and ever Mr. Chigvintsev.”
Chigvintsev, 40, and Bella, 38, first met as they were partnered up to compete in season 25 of Dancing With the Stars. They eventually confirmed their relationship in early 2019.
Chigvintsev went on to propose to Bella in November 2019 and their engagement was announced in January 2020.
“You are the best thing that has ever happened to me. So excited for what’s to come. I love you more than anything and thank you for saying ‘Yes.'” the Russian native had said about their engagement to Bella via Instagram.
“Excited for 2020 and the next decade with you @theartemc. I said yes in France in November! We have been trying to keep it a secret but really wanted to share our excitement for the New Year!” Bella also shared with her millions of social media followers at that time.
Previously, Nikki Bella and WWE star John Cena dated for about six years and were engaged. However, they canceled their wedding in April 2018 and eventually broke up in July of the same year.
The couple is also parents to a baby boy named Matteo who was born on July 31, 2020.
Bella had excitedly shared the baby news, “Our baby boy is here and we couldn’t be HAPPIER and more in LOVE! Everyone is safe and healthy.”
