Nikki Bella has just shared the first photo of baby Matteo after turning one month old, and we can’t get enough of his adorable face…
He looks so much like his dad!
Together they form the professional wrestling tag-team, known as The Bella Twins.
And 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.
And 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.
They were 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.
If being some of the most successful WWE diva’s wasn’t enough, the Bella’s landed their own show – Total Bellas – in 2016.
Because in March 2019, both Bellas announced on the show that they would be retiring from wrestling.
And then, earlier this year…
The twins both announced that they were pregnant… at the same time.
Yes, you read that right. Both Brie and Nikki revealed that they were pregnant – due just a week and a half apart.
The twins exclusively revealed to People Magazine that they were both expecting and opened up more about the circumstances surrounding the shocking announcement.
“My husband and I were trying for 7 or 8 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.”
“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?’”
Brie Bella finally gave birth and welcomed her second child into the world with husband, Daniel Bryan.
The couple waited throughout the entire pregnancy before knowing the child’s gender and now they finally know – it’s a baby boy!
Nikki joined the club welcoming her son, Matteo Artemovich Chigvintsev, into the world. She too confirmed the news on Instagram.
“7/31/2020 Our baby boy is here and we couldn’t be HAPPIER and more in LOVE! Everyone is safe and healthy.”
And now after Matteo has turned one month old, Nikki Bella celebrated by posting a pic of her baby boy on Instagram…
“Our Matteo is a month old today ? @theartemc,” she captioned the post.
“omg he’s Artem’s twin??,” said one. “Omg!!!!!!! he look so much like daddy,” another wrote “Mini Artem!,” a third exclaimed.
He can be seen sleeping peacefully in Artem’s arms, and quite honestly it’s the most adorable thing we’ve ever seen.
We can’t wait to see some more pics!
