Another day, another A-list engagement! WWE athlete Nikki Bella just announced she is engaged to boyfriend Artem Chigvintsev. However, the proposal didn't occur in 2020. Instead, the pair has been secretly engaged since November, but waited until the new year to share the news.

In an Instagram post, Bella revealed that Chigvintsev popped the question while the couple was vacationing in France. "Excited for 2020 and the next decade with you @theartemc," wrote the Total Bellas star. "I said yes in France in November! We have been trying to keep it a secret but really wanted to share our excitement for the New Year!" The first photo depicts what happened moments after Chigvintsev's romantic proposal (complete with a string quartet, candles and a lot of roses). In the second photo, Bella is showing off her new emerald-cut sparkler.

Chigvintsev shared the same images to his own Instagram account, captioning the post, "You are the best thing that has ever happened to me. So excited for what’s to come I love you more than anything and thank you for saying yes."

Bella first met Chigvintsev in 2017 when they were partners on season 25 of Dancing With The Stars. At the time, Bella was engaged to fellow WWE wrestler John Cena. Cena and Bella eventually called off their engagement in 2018, leading Bella to make her relationship with Chigvintsev Instagram-official in March 2019. Looks like 2020 is going to be a great year for these two!
