Artem Chigvintsev is all set to return as a pro-partner on Dancing with the Stars less than a month after welcoming his first child with his fiancee Nikki Bella on July 31. Artem will be a part of the revamped season 29 which would eventually mean 8-12 hour dance rehearsals with his celebrity partner, and a lot of time away from his infant son and future wife.
A source close to the Bella twins said, “Nikki couldn’t be more excited for Artem to return to Dancing With the Stars. She knows that’s his passion and she’ll be cheering him on from home the whole time. Nikki would never think about holding Artem back from doing what he loves and she knows he’s the same way about her passions,” HollywoodLife reported.
The source further revealed how the couple always supports each other’s dreams. “They completely support each other’s dreams and she’s confident that his health and well-being will be well protected (against COVID-19). Nikki knows the show’s production will put every safety precaution into place and the biggest hurdle she’ll have to deal with is how much she’s going to miss him. But she has a huge support system around her and she’s just thrilled Artem is getting back into doing what he loves,” the source said.
“They are all OK with the separation that is going to take place and everyone is very confident that while Artem has to be quarantined and away while at DWTS, he won’t be gone for that long and it won’t be much of a big deal.”
