Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev have finally done the deed and walked the aisle after three years of dating. The lovebirds who got engaged in January 2020 and had their marriage stalled due to COVID and several reasons finally took their relationship to the highest level.
The newlyweds broke the ecstatic news via a joint Instagram post where they gave fans an insight into their secret wedding ceremony, which was held in the city of love — Paris, France.
Nikki Bella And Artem Chigvinstev Are Married!
On Monday, the pair shared a two-slide post of them on their wedding day looking so in love. The first slide was an up-close photo of the couple’s wedding rings. Bella lovingly held on to Chigvintsev’s hands, their blinged fingers taking the spotlight, resting on a background of white and green flowers.
The blushing bride opted for well-manicured nude nails with an almond shape while her “DWTS” pro partner’s nails were neatly trimmed. In the subsequent slide, the newest couple in town locked themselves in a warm embrace as they stared off into the distance, champagne glasses in their hands.
The duo turned away from the camera, their back turned towards us, but fans were able to get a glimpse of what the WWE star’s wedding gown looked like. Nikki stunned in a white dress with an off-shoulder, satin strap that hung loosely. The gown hung tightly to her frame and the star wrestler rocked a bob hairstyle as she held on to her husband.
The “Strictly Come Dancing ” alum looked dapper in a folded white t-shirt paired with black pants, his hands wrapped around Nikki’s waist. In the distance was a silhouette of the Eiffel Tower, confirming that they walked down the aisle in Paris.
A Look At Bella & Chigvinstev Wedding Rings!
The highlight of Bella and Chigvinstev’s post was the up-close look at their rings. The 38-year-old rocked a breathtaking ring with a rectangular diamond set and a diamond-paved and. The ring sat pretty on her finger and looked similar to her engagement ring.
The Russia-born dancer proposed to Bella in November 2020, but the athlete didn’t share the news until January 2020 via a touching Instagram post that read, “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!”
Days after the announcement, she gave fans a glimpse at her engagement ring in a YouTube video. The silver “classic” Harry Winston-style featured a large rectangular diamond set and silver band.
Chigvinstev, on the other hand, opted for a simple gold band with lines. The caption of the wedding post revealed more details about Bella and Chigvinstev’s nuptials. It read, “We said I DO, can’t wait to share the entire journey with you all when our four-part special event, “Nikki Bella Says I Do,” premieres on @eentertainment. #NikkiBellaSaysIDo.”
Fans and colleagues camped in the comments section, wishing the couple a happy married life. “DWTS” alum Gleb Savchenko wrote, “I love you guys! congratulations ❤️❤️❤️,” while WWE star Paige wrote, “Yesssss congrats you crazy kids ❤️.”
Bella and Chigvinstev’s secret wedding comes months after the “Total Bellas” star slammed rumors that she wasn’t planning on marrying her fiancé. As The Blast reported, she cleared the air, saying COVID-19 was responsible for the delayed wedding and that Chigvinstev was away on tour.
Shutting the lid on the topic, she declared, “I will be getting married, and I can’t wait. I do me, for me. So that means I’ll marry Artem when I want, for me and Teo and him, for my life.”
Indeed, Bella shut the haters up! Congratulations to the couple!
