Nikki Bella and her boyfriend Artem Chigvintsev made their red carpet [technically, it was orange] debut as a couple while in attendance at the Kids’ Choice Sports Awards. While there, they chatted with HollywoodLife and the two opened up about their possible plans to tie the knot!
Nikki was nominated in the awards show’s Queen Of Swag category.
During the interview with the news outlet, the topic of one day sharing the same last name came about.
It all started with the woman admitting that she has trouble pronouncing her dancer beau’s last name but, should they decide to get married, maybe he could take her name instead?
‘Yeah be a Bella…Artem Bella. I like that!’ Nikki said enthusiastically at the suggestion.
But Artem was not willing to give up his last name.
‘I don’t know, I got to stick to my roots!’ he said, laughing.
Nikki chimed in to agree that ‘His Russian side would be too upset! Well that is your full side!’
Furthermore, the pair playfully avoided labeling their relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend but Artem joked that he ‘would obviously date Nikki.’
So, when will they define their relationship? Nikki revealed that she and her sister sort of discussed that in the upcoming episode of their The Bellas Podcast.
The rumored pair has definitely been asked a lot if they really are dating or not at this point and the wrestling star mentioned that as well.
However, the two seem to prefer not putting a label on what they have – which is mostly ‘fun!’
‘Artem created a legit choreography to mime it to everyone what we are! I mean there was even groundwork on that! It was tough,’ Nikki said, referring to a video that will be uploaded on her YouTube channel soon.
Well, that is still pretty ambiguous but it’s better than nothing!
