PEOPLE.COM is reporting that both Nikki and Brie Bella are pregnant and they’re due only a week and a half apart. This will be Nikki’s first child and Brie’s second.
“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,” Brie told PEOPLE.
“[It was] a total surprise,” Nikki adds. “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.”
Nikki’s desire to have a baby is well known and it was the major reason why she and WWE Superstar John Cena split up after Cena changed his mind several times about having a kid. Meanwhile, Brie said that she and husband Daniel Bryan have been trying for seven or eight months but were unsuccessful.
“I felt in my heart it was a sign from God, like, ‘You guys are good with one,’ so we stopped trying,” says Brie. “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, shit’“
Nikki said she and her partner Artem weren’t really trying but had a feeling she got pregnant. “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,” says Nikki. “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?’“
Congratulations to the twins!
