Nikki Bella is sharing some intimate details about her relationship with Artem Chigvintsev.

On the latest episode of The Bellas Podcast, which she co-hosts with her twin, Brie Bella, Nikki discussed her dating life with Artem, whom she was paired with on Dancing With the Stars back in 2017. Relationship rumors swirled around the pair last December, and they have since been spotted on multiple dates.

"He’s an amazing cook. He’s an amazing lover," Nikki gushed, to which Brie exclaimed, "Ew!" 

"Oh yeah, was that TMI?" Nikki questioned, before continuing to list another one of Artem's best qualities. "He does work around the house, so it's really nice."

"So he’s your boyfriend?" Brie asked.

"No... Because I’m not ready for it," Nikki revealed.

Though the duo may not have the boyfriend-girlfriend labels, Nikki couldn't help but praise Artem's "insanely graceful legs."

"I had to borrow sweatpants one time and I almost lit them on fire I was so embarrassed," Nikki recalled. "They were baggy on him, but on me, it looked like skinny jeans. I was like, 'What the f? This is not cool.'"

"And can you imagine when I’m on top? That I’m gonna save for a whole other episode. Thighs galore, girl," Nikki added, much to the horror of Brie.

"I don't need the visual of you on top of anyone," Brie said.

Earlier in the episode, Nikki discussed more her lack of labels with Artem, lamenting the fact that fans and the press seem to think they're in an exclusive relationship when they're not.

"I feel like, for women in my situation who date and have fun, when we want to get our Carrie and Samantha on and showcase it on our platforms, people automatically assume that we're official," Nikki said, referencing Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall's characters on Sex and the City. "... Sometimes I feel like there's a double standard for women when they want to date let's say, multiple people, we have these rules that we can't post them on social, but, like, why not?"

"... When you're non-exclusive why can't they showcase all those moments without having labels put on them or being called names like 'slut' and all that different stuff," she continued. "I feel like when guys do it they get high fives."

As for why she shares her experiences with Artem on social media, Nikki said that they simply "have a really fun time" posting pics of each other.

Despite their non-exclusive status, Nikki recently went as Artem's date to Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson's nuptials, which she said was "so intimate and beautiful and fun."

"You could just see the love in their eyes. It was just about them two. It wasn't about impressing people or doing a dance, they just looked at each other the whole time so in love," she said. "And their vows were beautiful... It's just two beautiful souls that became one."

Aside from how beautiful the wedding was, Nikki herself had a great time, even dancing "so much that I was knocking Artem on the dance floor around 12:30 in the morning, so we decided to go home."
