After first meeting in 2017 while Nikki was competing on DWTS, the couple got engaged in Paris in 2019 before welcoming Matteo the next year. 

Fans got to see the former WWE star plan her and Artem's wedding in just four weeks on the E! special Nikki Bella Says I Do earlier this year. During the four-part series, Nikki revealed the special connection they have to Paris and their wedding venue specifically.

"Place Vendôme is super special to Artem and I because when we went on our first vacation, we flew to Paris, and we stayed at The Ritz," the former Bella Twin recalled. "And I just remember one night, we were coming back and having drinks, we were walking through all the streetlights at the Place Vendôme, and I just always had this dream of like, 'Artem, I want you to dance with me here.' It just was one of the greatest vacations of my life. I felt like I was living this true love story, like someone took me out of a telenovela and I was living it."

So, she and Artem got married right next door at the Hôtel d'Évreux.

"I mean, when people say Paris is magic, it truly is magic," Nikki added. "Brie and I just stumble across this gorgeous venue in a place that means such much to Artem and I. This literally just, it feels like a movie. Like, how did this happen?"
