The twins come from sporting backgrounds - having played soccer in their youth. Although, it wouldn't be soccer that they ended up pursuing.

In search of modeling and acting opportunities, Nikki and Brie relocated to LA.

And they made ends meet through various gigs from cocktail waitressing to marketing.

Their celebrity stardom was kickstarted by a TV appearance on the Fox reality show Meet My Folks.

Initially airing from 2000 to 2003, the comedy reality show saw 3 bachelors spend 3 days with the possible "woman or man of their dreams," in her/his family home. The winner got to bag a holiday to Hawaii with the person they'd met on the show, if their family approved.

Their stint on the show spurred a more lucrative on-screen career.

Shortly, after their appearance on the reality show, the twins were hired to be the World Cup Twins for Budweiser and were subsequently photographed holding the World Cup trophy.

And in 2007...

The Bella Twins were signed to developmental contracts by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling.

It was with WWE, that the Bella Twins really rose to fame.

On September 14, the twins made their big in-ring debut.

And it was a huge success, to say the least.

The twins defeated Nattie Neidhart and Krissy Vaine, proving they were well on the course to become champions in the ring.

They accomplished some rather impressive feats.

The twins are both former Diva Champions, with Nikki having held the title on 2 occasions and Brie once.

In November 2015, Nikki was even ranked No. 1 in Pro Wrestling Illustrated's Female 50.

It's clear they have huge talent in the ring, paving the way for mainstream women's wrestling.

In 2012, it was announced that the twins had been fired from WWE.

Executive Administrator Eve Torres pulled the plug on the duo after they began feuding with her following appeared during a Divas Championship match between Torres and Natalya. The twins allegedly then tried to attack Torres backstage.

The twins made a return to WWE in 2013 when the smash-hit reality show first aired.

The duo even landed their own reality show.

If being some of the most successful WWE diva's wasn't enough, the Bella's landed their own show - Total Bellas - in 2016.

But last year, fans of the pair were left devastated...

In March 2019, both Bellas announced on the show that they would be retiring from wrestling.

But stopping the sport hasn't impacted on how close the twins remain.

And now some shocking news has been revealed...

The twins, both thirty-six, have announced they are pregnant.

Yes, you read that right. Both Brie and Nikki are pregnant - due just a week and a half apart. Nikki is expecting her first child with fiancé, Artem Chigvintsev, while Brie is expecting her second child with husband, Daniel Bryan. The baby news also comes just weeks after Nikki and Artem announced their engagement.

Uncanny coincidence or well-thought-out plan?

The twins exclusively revealed to People Magazine that they were both expecting and opened up more about the circumstances surrounding the shocking announcement.

For Brie, however, the road to pregnancy hasn't been easy...

“My husband and I were trying for seven or eight months, but then I felt in my heart it was a sign from God, like, ‘You guys are good with one,’ so we stopped trying," she explained. "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, s—!’"

Brie explained that her and Nikki were just as shocked by the news.

“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 admitted. “[It was] a total surprise," Nikki added. “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 explained that she and Artem weren't actually trying for a baby.

“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." “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 want to do this by myself. When I came back in, and it said pregnant, I had to sit down for a second." We're sure we'll see more when Total Bellas returns in Spring on E! Congrats Nikki and Brie!
