Nikki Bella is only a few months post-partum and still looks amazing. However, she is getting candid about her self esteem.
It also doesn’t help that DWTS is the exact place where Nikki and Artem felt a connection with each other.
She admitted on the Bellas Podcast that she does find herself thinking about Artem and his dance partner.
‘The postpartum stuff kicks in because it’s like, you know, they get to be just twirled and dipped by your man. And then it’s like, gosh, her legs look great and she’s beautiful and look at her eyes and her hair and wow, her body! And then you kind of glance in the mirror and you see the bags under your eyes and your hair’s like up in a bun everywhere. I had a big mumu on with a boob hanging out with, like, leaking milk from my nipple. And I was like wow, he’s gonna come home. Do I need to do something to myself because he was just dancing with that and now he’s coming back to this?’
However, their romance is still going strong. She revealed that they didn’t even make it to the six-week mark to start making love again.
Artem, while he is elated to be back on Dancing, he misses his fiance and son more than anything.
The dancer admitted to feeling lonely without them.
‘Right now, the little one is actually in Phoenix and not in Los Angeles because Nicole will have to shoot a few things for Total Bellas. The [last] couple of days, I have pretty much [been], like, just by myself, which I find very, very lonely. I used to come home and just hold a bundle of joy in my hands. And it really [was] just the most amazing thing.’
It’s great to see Nikki being honest about motherhood and her insecurities.
