Nikki Bella Admits She’s Postponing Her And Artem Chigvintsev’s Wedding Again Over ‘One Promise’

Nikki Bella admits she’s putting off marrying fiancé Artem Chigvintsev once again.

“The one promise I made [Chigvintsev] before we can plan is that his parents can attend,” she told ET. “And with where the world’s at right now, and trying to get two Russian parents into the country, it’s almost impossible. So the day I can get two visas is the day we will set our date and say, ‘I do.’ “

“I think last year I said Thanksgiving, right? And I want to say next Thanksgiving,” she added. “I can’t believe it’s been a year, but I really do want to get married. I mean, selfishly, I just want to have that, like, one big day about me. I can’t wait for that and to wear that dress, but I do want to marry Artem.”

And while their wedding may be postponed, Bella shared that she has been considering welcoming baby No. 2 with Chigvintsev, 39. The two currently share Matteo, who is 16 months.

“At the rate I’m going with never getting married, maybe,” she shared recently.

“But this is what I told Artem: ‘At 39, if I’m happy where I’m at in life, and with you and you’re still in my life, I possibly will get pregnant, and let’s try to have that baby before 40. But hey, if not, I’m sorry, she is closed.’ “

Previously, Bella spoke on her wedding planning during an episode of The Bellas Podcast, revealing how she and Chigvintsev would “love it to be in the fall” but ultimately decided to postpone it due to other commitments.

“A few of the venues were like, ‘We’re available.’ And what we just started saying is, ‘We’re so busy every day and we completely remodeled the inside of our home,” she shared. “We haven’t even lived in it yet and we’re doing the outside and that takes so much work. We’re still not even done designing. And so he and I both were just like, ‘Let’s get through the house. If it happens, it happens.’ “

Bella stated that despite not setting a date, she knows what her “really big bash” with Chigvintsev will look like.

“Napa Valley, for sure,” she said of her dream wedding destination. “I’d have amazing wine and just think of the decor you get to bring in … the most beautiful reds and deep dark reds. I just have this whole vision.”
