Nikki Bella Says John Cena Dream Gave Her ‘Clarity,’ Plus: Brie Sees Wrestling in Their Boys’ Futures
Nikki and Brie Bella have a lot on their plate between their show “Total Bellas,” their podcast “The Bellas,” and their baby boys, who were born one day apart over the summer.
When “Extra’s” Jenn Lahmers caught up with the twins, Nikki talked about dreams she’s had involving her exes, including John Cena. She also talked about how hard it has been since her fiancé Artem Chigvintsev went back to work on “Dancing with the Stars.” The sisters also gushed over their 4-month-old sons!
On a recent podcast episode, Nikki revealed to Brie that she was having vivid dreams about her exes. Nikki told Jenn, “So I blame the blue moon… I started to have crazy-vivid dreams, like I was sitting and having coffee with all my exes.” She admitted John Cena was one of them, “Oh, of course… We got great clarity with that… What was weird, it was, like, clarity like, ‘You are where you’re supposed to be,’ and I’m good and I’m happy.”
Nikki, a first-time mom, opened up about how hard it has been at home with Matteo while Artem is busy with “DWTS.”
She explained, “It’s been very difficult because when he had to start dancing and when he left us, Matteo was 4 weeks old… I thought, ‘I can’t do this,’ and I was shook. I was like, ‘I can’t do this without him,’ so it’s definitely been a struggle. It caused me to maybe even fall into postpartum depression, and I’m so much better now… He tries his best… but I’m very happy it’s done in two weeks.”
The former WWE champions are happy to have their little boys growing up together, and they gushed over Matteo and Brie’s son Buddy. Nikki said, “They’re little heartbreakers. I mean, Matteo already looks like a European teenage heartthrob.”
Brie added, “I already feel they’re a tag team… I’m going to see a future in the wrestling world or maybe on the dance floor.”

“Total Bellas” returns Thursday at 9 p.m. on E! and Brie teased just how they candid they get on the show. “We don’t have filters at all and so us both being pregnant together just eggs us on to really showcase everything with pregnancy.”
