“This Thursday you all get to finally watch & see more behind the photos, the dancing, & the stories of this love, this roller coaster ride I have had with @theartemc on #totalbellas,” Bella wrote.

They say love conquers all…and it sure does,” she added. “So many people in the beginning said it was just lust, my feelings weren’t real, it was just the dance, the infatuation, the mystery of this person, but I knew & felt it was always more.”

“I listened to my heart, my soul, my body, I knew deep down that this was God’s gift, his answered prayer,” Bella continued. “You never know when He will answer it, when it will come, it’s never the timing we desire, or at least we don’t think it is.”

She went on to explain how she was finally able to embrace her feelings for the 37-year-old dancer when she “finally got the chance” – she was likely referring to her split from ex-fiancé John Cena in 2018.

“Maybe because I was so broken, I tried to fight a very powerful love, deny it, walk away from it, & yet this beautiful gift of love wouldn’t let me walk away, this love that I always wanted,” the retired professional wrestler said.

“Now I didn’t expect to get so much of what I had been praying for in a year lol but I finally opened up my eyes, my heart, & accepted this beautiful gift,” Bella added. “And now I have the most beautiful gift of all coming in August, my baby. (Goodness I love saying that!!).”

“I thought answered prayers were easy, just given when answered but they’re not, there’s a lesson & a growth in each one,” she said. “You just got to be brave, fearless & know He’s right there holding your hand & waiting for when He knows it’s the right time for you.”

She went on to say she’s “so glad I took the chance” on Chigvintsev, telling her fiancé, “You are brave enough to show the world our love, our ups & downs, & all the beautiful imperfections in between.”

“I want to dance forever with you my click, my A, my love.❤️,” Bella said. “I know being locked inside with your love one right now can be more tough than enjoyable, especially when finances and kids come into play but maybe right now is a good time to communicate, be adventurous in creative ways, be silly & just dance.”

She concluded her sweet tribute, “Don’t give up on love. Imagine if I did. Sorry so long. Luv u all! ❤.”

Bella and Chigvintsev met in 2017 while partnered together on season 25 of Dancing With the Stars. At the time, Bella was engaged to Cena, but in 2018 the pair decided to call off their engagement and canceled the wedding.

In March 2019, Bella and Chigvintsev announced their relationship via Instagram.
