Even though Brie Bella‘s due date was earlier than her twin sister Nikki Bella‘s due date, Nikki still “beat” Brie to the finish line, even if it was only by mere hours. As fans of the twins know, the sisters were pregnant at the same time.
Nikki and her fiancé, former Dancing With The Stars pro Artem Chigvintsev were pregnant with their first child, while Brie and her husband, fellow wrestler Brian Danielson, were pregnant with their second. Now, both of their bundles of joy are officially here and they couldn’t be more excited.
Nikki and Brie Bella Give Birth to Their Sons Just Hours Apart
Both Nikki and Brie welcomed little boys into the world. Nikki and Artem’s son was born on July 31, while Brie and Brian’s son was born on August 1.
And although neither of the sisters have shared their sons’ names, Nikki did take to their Twitter account to talk about her first few days as a new mom. “Our baby boy is here and we couldn’t be HAPPIER and more in LOVE! Everyone is safe and healthy,” she began one of her several tweets.
“The last few days have been truly incredible! Such a beautiful learning experience, still is, and wow a love like this! Everything you all have said it would be! I’ve never smiled so much with such little sleep. I’m in heaven! I’m so happy!! And Artem is the best Dad! Our baby boy is so lucky. I didn’t think I could love him even more… but goodness I fell more in love with him the past few days. I feel so blessed. Can’t wait for the day to officially [make] us a family.”
Nikki also talking about her and her sister having baby’s just hours apart. “And how about that tag team,” the new mom wrote. “I can’t believe Brie and I had boys less than 24 hours apart! Honestly only us! lol And that I beat her. As you can imagine, everyone said it was my baby [and my] competitive side that kicked in! I can’t wait for our Bellas Boys to grow up together!”
She then concluded by thanking everyone for their support and congratulatory messages. It’s unclear when Nikki and Brie will share their sons’ names and first pictures, but we couldn’t be more excited for them! The sisters do plan on sharing their birthing experiences on their show, Total Bellas, on E!
