Katherine Schwarzenegger, who, just like Nikki and Brie Bella, is a new mom, went live on IG with the famous twins and chatted about a lot of things motherhood-related! That being said, one of the topics was Nikki’s fiancé, dance pro Artem Chigvintsev and his latest season of Dancing with the Stars.
During that conversation, Nikki made it very clear that she is ‘counting down’ the days until he’s done with the show and also explained why she is so eager to have him back home!
At some point, Nikki even got candid about her postpartum depression, in addition to admitting that, throughout her pregnancy, she started feeling quite lonely, mainly because of the lockdown.
The new mom admitted that she still feels like that to a certain extent, even now that her son is here!
‘For my postpartum depression, I’m doing better. I still have days where I struggle but I feel like I’m out of the dark hole. But for me it was like, here Mateo was four weeks old, and Artem got Dancing With the Stars. He got back on the show [after a season off] and I wanted to be supportive. Like, ‘Go! I’ll be fine. I’ll meet you in Los Angeles,’ because we were in Phoenix at the time,’ she shared.
Nikki went on to admit that ‘We were such a team. So when he left, like, my world got shook. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t do this on my own. Like, why did I say I could do this on my own? But now I need to be supportive and keep my mouth shut and not be negative.’
With that being said, she confessed that she cannot wait to have Artem back in her life full time, as soon as this DWTS season comes to an end in a couple of weeks. ‘I told Artem the other night, I was like, ‘I just feel lonely.’ I feel bad, but I’m counting down until the season finale which is in two weeks, because I’m finally going to have my fiance back, we’re going to be a family, and hopefully that loneliness will go away,’ she shared
