They are still going strong, yes! Nikki Bella discussed their “wonderful” new phase as husband and wife.
The Total Bellas star gushed, “What I enjoy is it just officially made us a family.” Given that we have Matteo, we have already lived somewhat of a married life, but it’s still neat. Perhaps more so for me, as my last name is unique. Being Nicole Chigvintsev now was a significant change for me.
How Many Children Do Artem Chigvintsev And Nikki Bella Have?
On July 31, 2020, Nikki gave birth to Matteo, their lone child. The couple is still undecided about whether they will have another child.
In an “ideal” world, the author of The Incomparable “would love to have two kids,” but she is hesitant to go through the pregnancy process again. She said, “I’m like a one-and-done [person].”
Artem is receptive to the concept and exclaims that “two is better than one,” but he knows he wouldn’t be the one doing the labor-intensive work. “If that occurs, like, two kids, bam, it’s too bad,” the speaker said. He said to Us, “Let’s do it. “But it’s not my decision since I won’t be carrying [the child] for nine months.”
However, given their busy schedules, the native of Russia acknowledged he has no idea “what it’s going to look like with two.”
It’s challenging to have one child, especially if you [are] fully committed to what you do, he said. I’m not sure if many parents can empathize. “And our employees aren’t all in one place for us, specifically. Because you want to play a significant role in [your child’s development], it can be challenging to figure out this approach.
