The “Total Divas” star shared a special tribute on Friday to honor the father of her child on his 38th birthday. Artem’s big day comes one day after the couple revealed their baby’s gender on the season finale of their popular show. For obvious television reasons, the duo couldn’t tell the public for months after they filmed the episode but now that cat’s out of the bag. That relief is a pretty good birthday present!
“Happy Birthday My Click!! @theartemc I love you so much! You are such a bright light in my life. ✨ Thank you God for him! ❤️ Excited for many more birthdays, journeys, travels, and experiences together… and with our baby boy. ?” Nikki lovingly captioned her tribute post.
Fans of the show know that Nikki and Brie pretty much do everything together, so the soon to be auntie and mother for the second time quickly wished Artem well.
“Happy Birthday A!!! ?” Brie commented.
After the finale aired, Nikki finally was able to share the news on Instagram. She no longer had to wait to share the cute snaps from the gender reveal party and express how excited she is.
“Can’t wait for our little boy to arrive in August!! ?” she wrote on social media immediately after the season finale was over.
“Beyond Cloud Nine ? Oh Baby Boy,” she added.
During the episode, Artem called his mother in Russia to share the news, “It’s a boy!” he said in Russian.
Nikki has not been shy when it comes to keeping her millions of fans in the loop with her pregnancy and her. She has been sharing progress pics so her followers could watch her bump grow at the same time.
Two weeks ago, she celebrated 30-weeks and showed off her huge baby bump in a crop top and tiny panties. She shared a little boomerang that featured her rubbing her belly for good luck.
Back in May, Nikki was excited to reveal that her belly button was finally starting to pop out… in other words, her innie has finally turned into an outie!
She noted the change around the 29-week mark and also mentioned how she’s been taking it easy.
“Lazy Sunday ❤️ Almost 29 weeks (belly button is starting to pop out ☺️),” she wrote at the time.
Everyone loved the progress pic and WWE Diva Natalya sent love in the form of heart ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ emojis, while Nia Jaxx said, “Obsessed!!?”
JWoww commented, “Gorgeous ?,” and “DWTS” pro Mark Ballas send heart eyes ??? emojis as well.
