Double Bella babies!
Total Bellas stars Nikki and Brie Bella are both pregnant. People was the first to report the news. The reality stars and professional wrestlers announced the news on Wednesday, revealing that they are due a week and a half apart.
Brie already shares 2-year-old daughter Birdie with her husband, Daniel Bryan. This will be the first child for Nikki, who is engaged to Dancing With the Stars pro Artem Chigvintsev.
Brie said that after seven to eight months of trying to have a second baby, she was convinced that her daughter was meant to be an only child when she suddenly got pregnant.
As for Nikki, she had not been trying, telling People, "[It was] a total surprise. It took even me a good week to come to terms with like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m pregnant.’ I’m not ready for it.”
Shortly after the news broke, Nikki and Brie both took to their Instagrams to talk about their pregnancies with their fans. Nikki shared a lengthy post, writing, "I can’t even begin to describe to all of you how happy I am! I’M GOING TO BE A MOM!! It’s something I have wanted to be my whole life. I was definitely shocked when I found out. And so nervous! I wasn’t expecting it and felt I wasn’t ready but this journey of life is unpredictable."
She also revealed that she and the baby survived the flu during her first trimester and noted that her pregnancy symptoms have been intense.
"My baby is SO strong it’s crazy! (Mama felt it everyday first trimester lol) Can’t tell if it’s the wrestling genes or the ballroom!!" she said, referencing her DWTS love.
Nikki added that she's 13 weeks along and starting to show. She also gave her fiancé a special shoutout.
"@theartemc your pure joy, bliss, love and happiness has meant everything to me! To already watch you step up to be the best Dad for this little one makes my heart smile so big!" she wrote. "I know we aren’t husband and wife yet but I love our commitment to this child already."
Artem also took to his Instagram to share the news, posting, "I'm going to be a dad!" with the photo of the ultrasound.
"We are so excited," he added.
Brie also posted, writing, "We are shocked like all of you!!! Never in a million years thought did I think @thenikkibella and I would be having pregnant bellies together!!! Knowing us our babies will come the same day too lol!!! We are excited for you all to follow us on this amazing journey!!! Love you Sister!! ✨?"
In a recent issue of Health magazine, Nikki opened up about slowing down her plan to have kids after years of wanting them with ex-fiancé John Cena.
"I definitely want to be a mom one day, but I don’t want it now," she told the magazine at the time.
