Nikki Bella & Artem Chigvintsev Announce Their Wedding Date

Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev are setting a wedding date!

The pair revealed their wedding plans during the season finale of Total Bellas on Thursday (January 28).

“We are going to be getting married the weekend of Thanksgiving 2021!” Nikki announced to her family as she popped a bottle of champagne.

Nikki and Artem got engaged in November 2019. She gave birth to their son, Matteo, in July.

In the episode, Nikki also opened up about her struggle with post-partem depression, telling Artem, “I think it’s hard for men to truly understand postpartum.”

The 37-year-old former WWE star added, “Our body goes through so many changes inside and out and the battle we face mentally as moms, as a new mom, figuring that out… I’ll be honest, I started to just feel super invisible.”

Nikki recently shared that she and Artem would be starting couples therapy.

Nikki Bella & Artem Chigvintsev Are Planning On Going to Couples Therapy

Nikki Bella is getting candid about the problems in her relationship.

During a new interview, the 36-year-old Total Bellas star revealed that she and fiance Artem Chigvintsev will be going to couples therapy once he finishes this season of Dancing with the Stars.

“I would be lying to say, ‘Oh, it’s great.’ It has definitely been a struggle for us,” Nikki shared with Us Weekly. “It’s hard. We have so many ups and downs. It’s been so difficult on our relationship because I need so much from him, but he’s, like, torn between his job that requires so much from him and then us at home.”

The 38-year-old dancing pro returned to work shortly after Nikki gave birth to the couple’s son Matteo back in July.

A few weeks ago, Nikki said that she “hated” Artem for going back to work while she raised their newborn son alone while also battling postpartum depression.

If you missed it, Nikki Bella revealed the last time she spoke with ex John Cena.

Nikki Bella Talks Postpartum Depression, Says She 'Hated' Fiance Artem Chigvintsev

Nikki Bella is getting real about her postpartum depression.

During a new episode of her The Bellas Podcast, the 36-year-old reality star admitted she’s been feeling “super depressed” while raising two-month-old son Matteo, as fiance Artem Chigvintsev films Dancing with the Stars.

“I’ve always prided myself that I can fight a lot of things mentally,” Nikki shared. “I’m very strong in that way. Postpartum has knocked me on my ass. This is something that is way different.”

Nikki went on to reveal that she had a “massive” breakdown when she “refused to ask for help” while taking care of her newborn son while also filming the new season of Total Bellas.

“I think [my twin sister], Brie [Bella], was the first person who’s asked me in weeks: ‘How are you doing?’” Nikki said. “I was about to say, ‘Fine,’ and my lips started shaking and I burst into alligator tears. Like, I broke down. Because that was the first time someone asked me in a while how I was doing, and I wasn’t doing OK.”.

After talking with her doctor, Nikki realized that she was starting to “fall into a postpartum depression.”

“I didn’t realize at week seven, you kind of come out of your baby blues and … go two different paths,” Nikki explained. “You go the path of being healthy or you go down the path of being depressed, and that depression path can be a really dark, deep hole. I was starting to feel invisible…It just started to build up. Being alone with Matteo and just feeling lonely and not loved and invisible.”

Nikki said that when Artem comes home from DWTS, he spends time with Matteo, making her feel more alone, until she told him how she felt.

“He’s like ‘At times, I felt like you were starting to hate me,’” Nikki recalled. “He’s like, ‘You could be mean.’ And I’m not gonna lie, I did have moments of being mean. I did have moments when I looked at him and I hated him. It’s true. There were times I’d look at him and I’m like, ‘I think I hate you.’”

Luckily now, the two are communicating more as they raise their son together.
