Nikki Bella’s fiancé Artem Chigvintsev is busy shooting ‘DWTS’ so she’s spending all her time with her sister Brie Bella and their new babies.
Nikki Bella, 36, welcomed her first child with her fiancé Artem Chigvintsev on July 31st and less than a month later the Dancing with the Stars pro returned to the dance studio for the revamped season 29 of the ABC show. That means 8-12 hour dance rehearsals with his partner Kaitlyn Bristowe, 34, and a lot of time away from his infant son and future wife.
Fortunately the Total Bellas star isn’t feeling too alone thanks to the support from her twin sister Brie Bella, who welcomed her son Buddy on Aug. 1. Brie is already a mom to Birdie Joe, 3, with her husband Bryan Danielson (aka WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan) so she’s got plenty of advice to share. The sisters have been spending plenty of time together and multiple sources tell HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that they’re both loving being on their mom journey together.
The WWE legends and entrepreneurs just had an “emotional” reunion with their beloved grandmother Alice Dessert, 88, when they introduced her to their newborn sons Matteo and Buddy. “Nikki and Brie have been in California together visiting their grandmother,” a source close to the sisters shares. “They got to introduce her to their baby boys together, it was very emotional.”
“They’re pretty much together 24/7 right now. Nikki misses having Artem around all the time but she’s doing fine because she has Brie, they are helping each other. Nikki is loving every moment of this journey, she’s taken to motherhood so naturally, like she was made for it. It definitely helps to have Brie by her side, she has someone right there who can answer all her questions. Having her sister to lean on is making it much easier for her to cope with Artem being so busy [with DWTS].”
As for Artem, he’s fully immersed in DWTS and giving it his all to take home the trophy this season — for his son. “Being on the show and hopefully winning could make sure that Matteo will be all set for any college he wants to go to,” a source close to the dance pro previously told HollywoodLife. “He wants his son to know what it takes to be a hard worker and do what you love.”
