Quite the journey. Artem Chigvintsev is now in a happy relationship with Nikki Bella — the engaged couple welcomed their first child together, a son, in July 2020. However, the professional dancer dated others in the spotlight before settling down.The Russia native, who was part of Burn the Floor and Strictly Come Dancing before joining Dancing With the Stars, has been romantically linked to many dancers over the years. While not all his exes are still part of his life, one has a big impact on his weekly schedule.- Advertisement – Carrie Ann Inaba, who is currently a judge on the ABC competition series, was in a relationship with Chigvintsev for two and a half years between 2006 and 2009. She hasn’t given him any special treatment over the years though. In fact, during season 29 of the show, fans on social media speculated that she was being tough on him and partner Kaitlyn Bristowe because of their past.Bella also joked about the Hawaii native’s history with her now-fiancé in 2019, noting that if the judge’s save was part of the season they competed on together, maybe they would have “lasted longer” than they did.- Advertisement – “I think Carrie Ann totally would have saved us. And not because you guys dated … but she really liked my technique,” the Total Bellas star said during Entertainment Tonight at the time. During the live show, the dancer immediately began blushing and covered his face.Despite their past relationships, Bella and Chigvintsev are in a great place.“Artem treats Nikki like a queen. He’s such a great guy and madly in love with her,” an insider told Us Weekly exclusively in June 2020. “She’s his dream girl, and she is super sweet to him. Their friends love them as a couple.”- Advertisement – Scroll through the gallery below to see who else Chigvintsev has dated — and who he married — through the years. – Advertisement –

In this year’s budget the State Government announced it would be spending more than $930.7 million on regional infrastructure, which will create more than 3200 jobs.Combined with a pipeline of other projects in the works, the next few years should be particularly positive for North Queensland.“Projects like the new military training facility, the waterfront development, the port masterplan, Haughton pipeline, Kidston renewable energy project, and a few mining projects including Adani are good for the region,” Mr Pressley said. Propertology’s head of research Simon Pressley.“Propertyology expects further job creation to help boost local confidence along with Townsville’s demand for housing.“Rental vacancy rates are tight, interest rates are the lowest seen for generations, the Federal Government’s new first homeowner scheme is a ripper, and yields are strong for investors.” Ray White agent Julie Mahoney, said buyers were quick to put their money where their mouth was, which is a good sign for the future. “Five out of five properties sold under the hammer on Tuesday night,” Ms Mahoney said. “I’ve seen mostly owner-occupiers in the market and people buying for re-sale and subdivision purposes in the future.“Townsville is fast approaching a ‘normal’ market and the announcement of massive projects and the Adani approval has signalled confidence and the promise of numerous job opportunities.”REMAX agent Michelle Hyde also said she has seen an increase in buyers on the market since the federal election. “I think the local economy is on the up again.” Ms Hyde said.“Recently I’ve been getting multiple offers on the properties I’m marketing and that’s something we haven’t seen for quite some time in Townsville.”
Heading into Saturday’s encounter, Quique Sanchez Flores claimed fatigue had contributed to his team’s poor run, but the Watford manager made only one change with Juan Carlos Paredes coming in for Allan Nyom. Nordin Amrabat, the £6million signing from Malaga, was handed a place on the bench. For the visitors, Lascelles was drafted into McLaren’s starting XI while Henri Saivet was handed his full debut, and Rolando Aarons made his first league start of the season. It was Aarons, operating as a left wing-back, who had the first opportunity of the game. The ball fell to the 20-year-old on the edge of the Watford area, but he steered his half volley just wide of Heurelho Gomes’ left post. Ahead of the game, Watford had failed to score in their last two matches while Newcastle had netted only five times on the road this season – the lowest of any team in the top seven tiers of English football. Unsurprisingly the first half saw few opportunities for either a side. After 17 minutes Etienne Capoue seemed certain to score when Troy Deeney’s effort was fumbled by Rob Elliot but the Newcastle keeper scrambled to his feet to block the Frenchman’s follow-up strike. Midway through the first half Georginio Wijnaldum teed up Aleksandar Mitrovic, but his effort was saved by the legs of Gomes and the ball drifted out for a corner. That was as good as it got with referee Andre Marriner blowing his whistle on a rather dreary first half. The second period was a different story altogether, and just 44 seconds had gone when Capoue dinked a ball over the top of Newcastle’s static defence and Ighalo had only Elliot to beat. The Nigerian made no mistake as he rounded the Magpies’ stopper and side-footed home into an empty net. Replays suggested Ighalo, now with 14 goals to his name this term, may have been offside, but neither the home fans were not complaining. Watford ended their four-game losing streak in the Barclays Premier League with a much-needed 2-1 victory over Newcastle at Vicarage Road. Odion Ighalo scored the opening goal of the game just 44 seconds into the second half before Craig Cathcart doubled the home side’s lead shortly before the hour mark. Jamaal Lascelles pulled one back for the visitors, but the defeat for Newcastle sees Steve McClaren’s side remain in the relegation places while Watford move up to 10th. Press Association Watford were in command and moments after Valon Behrami was booked for being adjudged to have dived in the penalty area, the home side doubled their advantage. Newcastle failed to deal with a corner and the ball fell to Cathcart who fired home from close range shortly before the hour mark. A double substitution ensued for the visitors with Yoan Gouffran and Ayoze Perez replacing Aarons and Saivet. Moments after coming on, the latter found himself unmarked and six yards from goal, but his header – following a pinpoint cross by Moussa Sissoko – went high and wide. It did not look as though it would be Newcastle’s afternoon, but suddenly they were handed a lifeline when Lascelles out-jumped Miguel Britos to head home Jonjo Shelvey’s corner. Substitute Perez was then played through by Wijnaldum but fired his shot over. At the other end Ighalo twisted one way and the other before his fierce shot was well saved by Elliot. Newcastle pressed for an equaliser but it never came as Watford recorded their third victory over the Magpies this season.

The Watford skipper was influential for the home side throughout Saturday’s match and enhanced his cult status by handing over his boots to a fan at the final whistle. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Odion Ighalo has been one of the Premier League’s surprises in this most unpredictable of seasons. He ended his four-match goalless streak with a fine finish just 44 seconds into the second half. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Steve McClaren’s side have only scored six goals on the road this season and the Newcastle manager was incandescent in the first half when Aleksandar Mitrovic lost possession following a needless flick. MOAN OF THE MATCH Newcastle’s finishing was dreadful throughout Saturday’s match. Surely, McClaren will be desperate to get his hands on a new forward in the final week of the transfer window .
