Nikki Bella and her husband Artem Chigvintsev recently shared an argument they had about a pretty mundane topic. The Dancing with the Stars alum and pro dancer disagreed about the hydration benefits of sparkling water.
Nikki Bella, Artem Chigvintsev Argue About Water
Chigvintsev was a guest on this week’s episode of The Bellas Podcast. During the podcast, they got onto the topic of water when Bella mentioned that they forgot to bring drinks to record. Chigvintsev said Bella’s “solution to everything” is drinking more water.
That sparked Bella to mention that “Artem considers sparkling water is equivalent to water, like, as in getting hydrated.” She went on to claim that this is “not true,” saying that “sparkling water does not count for hydration.”
“When did you read it does not count as hydration?” Artem asked with a laugh. “Liquid is liquid, Nicole. It doesn’t matter if it has bubbles in it or not.”
Bella joked that they would “bring a water doctor” on to settle the argument. She added that “they would be serving it to athletes if it was a form of hydration.”
The Couple Did Some Research Into the Topic
They may not have gotten an actual doctor to appear on the podcast, but the couple did share an update on Instagram later. The Bellas Podcast account shared a clip of Bella and Chigvintsev arguing about the topic before adding a screenshot of an article.
According to the article from Everyday Health, “seltzer and sparkling water are just as hydrating as plain, flat water.” The article adds that whether the waters are flavored or unflavored also “doesn’t have any effect on how hydrating they are.”
Chigvintsev even took to his Instagram stories to share the clip and added a poll for his followers asking, “Do you think sparkling water hydrates?” As of this writing, 43 percent of people have actually sided with Bella, while the rest answered either “Yes” or “All water hydrates.”
