Nikki, 35, spoke candidly about tying the knot during the 20th-anniversary celebration of WWE’s Friday Night Smackdown. “Oh gosh, no,” Nikki told E! News. “Marriage and babies are really scary for me right now."
However, the retired professional wrestler added that she's still thinking about children and marriage for the future. Nikki recently told her sister Brie Bella on their The Bellas Podcast that she's hoping to have twins one day. “I want a boy and a girl and I want to knock it out all at once,” she said last month. “I want an epidural right when I go into labor. I don’t want to feel anything. Those are the things I want.”
Artem, 37, was a guest on the episode and gave his two cents on having a house full of kids. "You know what? I've never thought about an exact number,” Artem said. “But the only thing I can compare it to is obviously my parents and what they have. They have two of us. It's me and my brother. If I have to throw a number, I would probably say two because that's how I grew up and I had a good relationship with my brother."
The Dancing With the Stars pro and the Total Bellas star began dating in 2018 and confirmed their romance on the podcast in July. The twosome were former partners on the ABC dancing competition series and worked together in 2017. Nikki made their relationship Instagram official in March with an Instagram photo that showed her giving Artem a kiss on his cheek.
The couple made their red carpet debut 2019 Kids’ Choice Sports Awards on July 11. The duo was first spotted looking very lovey-dovey over Christmas 2018 and have been seen on several dates since then.
