“I actually called the executive producer right after our first meet. And I even said, Wow, this girl is absolutely incredible.”

“Actually, I said, ‘I think I’m like, in love.’ I don’t really understand what it meant for me at the time. Just when you meet a certain person that you kind of don’t really understand how you feel yet, you have a lot of feelings. You don’t know how to cope with it or what to do with it. And you just try to manage it as well as you can in the best way you can. Again, look, I’m not perfect. Obviously. But, I think that was the time it kind of hit me. Even speaking about it right now I am sweating.” H/t The Bellas Podcast

Of course, he didn’t act upon it immediately considering Bella was still dating John Cena. However, after Cena and Bella broke up for personal differences and how they perceived their future, Artem Chigvintsev and Nikki Bella got together.

Today, they are a happy family with a son, Matteo Artemovich Chigvintsev.
