While many fans of Nikki Bella and John Cena wish these two could possibly get back together and live happily ever after, it’s become pretty evident that the two former lovebirds have officially moved on.
“He’s an amazing cook, he’s an amazing lover,” Bella said on her The Bellas Podcast on Wednesday (April 24) about dating her former Dancing with the Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev. “Oh yeah, was that TMI? He does work around the house, so it’s really nice.”
“So he’s your boyfriend,” her twin sister Brie quickly responded on the podcast. “If he has all these great qualities, then why not?”
“No,” Nikki Bella said. “Because I’m not ready for it.”
Indeed, during the same podcast, Bella seemed agitated that many press outlets were calling Chigvintsev her boyfriend.
“I was his date, right, we’re dating,” Bella said about attending the recent wedding of Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson with her new love. “But then everywhere it says, ‘Nikki Bella and boyfriend Artem’ — and I’m like, wait, boyfriend? Why are there labels? Why are they doing that? I feel like for women in my situation who date and have fun, who want to get our Carrie and Samantha on and showcase it on our platforms, people automatically assume that we’re official.”
