“This is the longest time we haven’t seen each other. We stayed six or seven weeks [apart]Nikki said during an episode of “The Bellas Podcast” in November 2021. “I have AGT: Extreme … [and] Artem and I argue, Teo goes everywhere with mom. That’s where he feels comfortable, that’s where he does it best. And, you know, it’s been hard for [Artem] and it has also been hard for me not to have my man in my bed.
The California native added that being “raised in different” countries also made it difficult for them to communicate while apart. “When they are far away from each other, there are different time zones. Me having Matteo and working long hours, I need Artem to register, ”he explained at the time. “Sometimes I feel that the other person, mainly the parents, get into this [space of thinking] they did FaceTime and that’s great, and they get on the phone and that’s where it all ends for them. And it’s hard when the involvement beyond that isn’t there.”
However, with the help of counseling and “sexy facetimes”, Nikki and the Russian native were able to overcome their losing streak. “We are actually in a good place. We were getting a little rocky for a while… [But] Now we are stronger than ever.”
