“Total Bellas” stars Nikki and Brie Bella, 36, are both pregnant!
The twin sisters announced that they are due just one week and a half apart. Brie told People magazine, “Wait, twins being pregnant at the same time? 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 is expecting her first child with fiancé Artem Chigvintsev. She pointed out, “[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.”
Brie is already the mother of daughter Birdie, 2, with husband Daniel Bryan. Brie said she was “shocked” to learned about her pregnancy since she thought she was only “meant to have one child.”
She elaborated, “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. 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, s—!'"
As for how Nikki found out about her own pregnancy, she said, “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. 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?'"
She went on, “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.”
Nikki also kept it real about how she’s feeling, saying, “I feel like I literally have a hangover every day and it’s crazy because I’m not going out and partying. 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.”
She continued, “My eating habits have changed. I thought that, ‘Okay, I’m gonna stay healthy. I’m going to be good.’ But when it kicks in, this feeling, you only want french fries and ketchup. Vegetables sound disgusting. Anything healthy, honestly, sounds disgusting.”
Nikki expressed how excited she was to be a first-time mom, saying, “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! It’s something I’ve dreamed of my whole life.”
Over the past few years, Nikki has expressed her desire to be a mom, ever since being a relationship with John Cena.
The pregnancy news comes just weeks after Nikki revealed she was engaged to Artem.
A few months ago, “Extra’s” Renee Bargh spoke with Nikki and Artem at the Teen Choice Awards, where he dished on his “baby fever.” Watch!
Nikki and Artem met when they were partners on “Dancing with the Stars,” but they didn’t find love until years later, after her split with John Cena.
