On August 26, 2022, Chigvintsev married his longtime love Nikki Bella in Paris, France, according to E! News.

“For them ‘dancing’ is not so bad. No feelings are hurt. Artem and Nikki know he’s doing the show for all the right reasons,” the source said.

He feels so blessed to have such a supportive partner [in Nikki]. He can focus on this season, he would love to take home the trophy for his son.”

According to Us Weekly, the family of three spent more than a month apart in the past when Bella served as a judge on the TV talent contest “America’s Got Talent.”

“We went six or seven weeks [apart],” said Bella in her November 2021 “The Bellas Podcast.” “I’ve got ‘AGT: Extreme’… [and] Artem and I both discussed, [Matteo] goes everywhere with mom. …And, you know, it was hard for [Artem] and it has also been hard for me not to have my husband in my bed.”
