While there are a lot of people out there who can’t help but wonder if and when Nikki Bell will start a family of her own one day, the leggy brunette wants people to know she’s taking things one day at a time. As a matter of fact, the retired professional wrestler says that she has no plans to get pregnant any time soon, as she is enjoying her new romance with Dancing With The Stars pro Artem Chigvinstev.
Nikki and Artem met back in 2017 when she was a contestant on the hit ABC dancing competition show Dancing With The Stars, but the couple only started dating a few short months ago. In fact, they made their first public appearance just last week after dating with “no labels” for nearly four months. Nikki previously had a high-profile on-again and off-again relationship with Hollywood star John Cena.

And while there was some talk that Nikki was looking to become a mother while she was still with John, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore with her new boyfriend Artem. Nikki has hinted that she’s not looking to rush into anything and that instead she just wants to enjoy the way things are between them. However, Nikki did admit that Artem has wanted to become a father for a very long time.
Speaking to People Magazine during the 9thAnnual Variety The Children’s Charity Poker and Casino Night this past week, Nikki told the publication that the couple have had the ‘baby talk’ in the past.
The 35-year-old said, “Artem, even when we were just friends and dancing, he would talk about being a dad and wanting a daughter first. I’ve heard about his baby fever forever, but I’ve told him, ‘Look, I don’t know if I need to be on three birth controls, but we are not having kids anywhere in the near future.”
Nikki also said that Artem would often tell her that she seemed like someone who would one day be a good mom back when they were dancing together. Despite the compliments, Nikki stated at the time that motherhood was not in the cards for her.
For now, the Total Bellas star admits that it just feels good to be able to show off their relationship to the public. She admits that she and Artem are having a good time and that they are enjoying their freedom to do whatever they want, whenever they want. And that includes all of their public displays of affection, too.
She added, “It feels so good and I don’t have to hide it. I’m such a grabby person, like so PDA. And there’d be times I would just want to grab him so much and then I’m like, ‘Oh shoot, I got to pretend like I don’t know you.’”
