The Bella Twins have TWO reasons to celebrate!
In this week’s issue of People, Nikki and Brie Bella reveal they are both pregnant, and are due only a week and a half apart.
“Wait, twins being pregnant at the same time?” Brie joked. “People are going to think that’s a joke. We both are shocked. People are going to think we planned it, but you can’t really plan pregnancy!”
Nikki noted the double pregnancy was “a total surprise,” adding, “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.”
Brie also revealed she and husband Daniel Bryan — who share 2-year-old daughter Birdie — were convinced they were “meant to have one child.” Fortunately, they found out the good news right before Thanksgiving!
“My husband and I were trying for seven or eight months, but then I felt in my heart it was a sign from God, like, ‘You guys are good with one,’ so we stopped trying,” she said. “When we were in France meeting Artem’s family, I felt a little off. I was irritated and uncomfortable in my body. When we got home, I took a test two days before Thanksgiving, and when I saw the positive sign, I was like, ‘Oh, ----!’”
Though Nikki was not trying to conceive with fiancé/”Dancing with the Stars” pro Artem Chigvintsev, she had a hunch she was expecting.
“I was in yoga, and I kept getting this feeling that you need to take a pregnancy test, but I wasn’t even late yet,” she dished. “And so I’m like, ‘Why do I keep having this feeling? Am I getting twin vibes from her? Because she just told me she’s pregnant?’”
Nikki added, “I didn’t tell Artem at this point. I just want to do this by myself. When I came back in, and it said pregnant, I had to sit down for a second.”
In addition to having near-concurrent due dates, the WWE wrestlers are also experiencing the same symptoms.
“We have definitely felt better in our lives,” Brie remarked. “It’s actually crazy because we both have the same symptoms. So we’ve been super nauseous.”
“I feel like I literally have a hangover every day and it’s crazy because I’m not going out and partying,” Nikki continued. “I’m not hitting up my usual happy hours. There’s no wine in my life. It’s like having a hangover. I think what’s been the hardest part on me is feeling this hangover every day.”
Overall, the “Total Divas” are over the moon about their respective pregnancies.
“Even though I feel really sick, like, can’t believe I’m going to be a mom soon,” Nikki dished. “I’m going to have this person to take care of for the rest of their life and help them do the right things and just show them the way of the world. That’s amazing!”
She added, “It’s something I’ve dreamed of my whole life.”
While Brie and Daniel married in 2014, Nikki and Artem got engaged during a trip to France in November 2019.
