Former American professional wrestler Nikki Bella has revealed that she was nervous before she met dancer boyfriend Artem Chigvintsev's parents recently. Speaking on her podcast, she said: "I met Artem's parents. First of all, it was the first time Artem saw his parents in five years and his brother — so, he was so nervous and excited and emotional. It started to make me feel all these things.

"But, I'm not going to lie, I was really nervous. It was really cute because they all got really emotional when they saw each other and they cried. They don't know English. I don't know Russian, but somehow we made it work. I loved it, they're the sweetest people in the world ... It's crazy when you're put in the situation where you have a language barrier and you're forced to communicate without speaking."

Meanwhile, Chigvintsev told People magazine that he is glad his parents got to meet Nikki in person. "It [meeting] went really well and was kind of a dream come true. My parents love her and it's been a great reunion. They've been able to finally meet her in person, her to be able to see them."
