Brie and Nikki Bella are one of WWE’s most successful divas and have been on our screens for quite some time now. The twins share plenty of things – birthdays, WWE titles, and the twin sisters were even pregnant at the same time!
Now Nikki Bella has welcomed her newborn son with Arten Chigvintsev. This is adorable!
Together they form the professional wrestling tag-team, known as The Bella Twins.
The twins come from sporting backgrounds – having played soccer in their youth. Although, it wouldn’t be soccer that they ended up pursuing.
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.
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.
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.
The twins defeated Nattie Neidhart and Krissy Vaine, proving they were well on the course to become champions in the ring.
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.
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.
Who can forget Total Divas?
The twins made a return to WWE in 2013 when the smash-hit reality show first aired.
If being some of the most successful WWE diva’s wasn’t enough, the Bella’s landed their own show – Total Bellas – in 2016.
In March 2019, both Bellas announced on the show that they would be retiring from wrestling.
And earlier this year they shared some exciting news!
Both Brie and Nikki were pregnant – due just a week and a half apart.
Nikki was expecting her first child with fiancé, Artem Chigvintsev.
The baby news came just weeks after Nikki and Artem announced their engagement.
The twins exclusively revealed to People Magazine that they were both expecting and opened up more about the circumstances surrounding the shocking announcement.
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.”
“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.”
“7/31/2020 ? Our baby boy is here and we couldn’t be HAPPIER and more in LOVE! Everyone is safe and healthy.”
“7/31/2020 please welcome our precious baby boy Chigvintsev ? proud of my love @thenikkibella.”
