Nikki Bella rubs her baby bump after it’s confirmed she and twin sister Brie Bella are expecting at the same time.
The WWE star put her hand over her stomach showing off her engagement ring as she walked back to her car in Los Angeles. She wore a red ripped tank with black leggings, and black Nike sneakers accessorizing with tortoise square sunglasses and a Chanel quilted bag.
She looked trim and about 3 months pregnant after revealing she found out about her pregnancy last Thanksgiving after her fiancé proposed to her in France.
She told People she thought she was getting “twin vibes” from her pregnant sister in November without knowing she was also expecting:
“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,” she said. “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?’”
“I didn’t tell Artem at this point,” she added. “I just [wanted] to do this by myself. When I came back in, and it said pregnant, I had to sit down for a second.”
The star was previously in a long-term relationship with John Cena and broke up with him after she wanted to have children and he didn’t — the drama played out in Total Bellas. “I really thought I was okay not being a mom” — she told him before the split — “It’s just been groaning me and I’ve been just trying to push it to the side”.
They called it quits in 2018, with a brief reconciliation in 2019, before she found her new love interest Artem Chigvinstsev on Dancing With The Stars.
She also joked that the baby is going to be a “ballroom wrestler” who speaks Russian and exclaimed it was “sick” to find out she’s pregnant alongside her twin sister. “We were so crazy shocked, it took us a little bit, Brie was more embarrassed, but now it’s so fun!”.
The pregnancy came as a surprise to the couple since they weren’t trying for a baby — “I didn’t think I could get pregnant,” she admitted. “[I thought] that I’d have to have help, so I was in the process of going to freeze my eggs.”
How quickly things can change.
