The Bella Twins just revealed their mom Kathy is undergoing brain surgery Tuesday.

The matriarch was suffering from paralysis in her face, and it turns out the cause is not Bell’s palsy, but a “mass on her brain stem.”

Nikki posted, “Our Mama Bella, our Gigi, our Gato is about to head into brain surgery. I ask for so many prayers, so much light and love sent her way. ❤️✨ Sadly they found what you can compare to a tumor on her brain stem that has been paralyzing her face. I have faith that the amazing doctors will do an incredible job and our Gigi will be on the road to recovery starting late today.”

The reality star went on, “She’s loved by so many of us and just pray that her road to recovery is exactly what we are hoping for so we can put two new grand babies in her arms soon. Love you SOOO much Mom! You have a big Bella Army out here praying for you!!”

Her sister Brie also posted on Instagram, writing, “Today my mom goes in for brain surgery. They realized she doesn’t have Bells Palsey but a mass on her brain stem.....couldn’t sleep because I was praying all night. She’s a strong one and I know all her angels will be with her. #BellaArmy send Mama Bella all the prayers and love today 💛🙏🏼 Love you Mom @kathylaurinaitis.”

The news comes as both the pregnant twins are nearing their due dates. Nikki is expecting her first child, a baby girl, with fiancé Artem Chigvintsev, while Brie is expecting her second child with Daniel Bryan. Brie and Daniel are already the parents of 3-year-old Birdie.
