From birthdays to WWE titles, Nikki and Brie Bella have shared plenty together — now, they can add being pregnant to their list

Surprise: Nikki and Brie Bella are (both!) pregnant!

In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, the Total Bella stars, both 36, reveal they’re both expecting — and they’re due only a week and a half apart.

“Wait, twins being pregnant at the same time?” Brie says. “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!”

“[It was] a total surprise,” Nikki adds. “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.”

Brie, who shares 2-year-old daughter Birdie with husband and pro wrestler Daniel Bryan, was “shocked” to learn she’d conceived shortly after she decided she was “meant to have one child.”

“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,” says Brie. “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—!’ “

For Nikki, she says she and her new fiancé, Dancing with the Stars pro Artem Chigvintsev, weren’t trying, but she had a “feeling.”

“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,” says Nikki, who got engaged during a romantic trip to France in November. “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,” Nikki adds. “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.”

Because they share everything, from birthdays to WWE titles, the Bellas say they’re experiencing the same symptoms too.

“We have definitely felt better in our lives,” says Brie. “It’s actually crazy because we both have the same symptoms. So we’ve been super nauseous.”

“I feel like I literally have a hangover every day and it’s crazy because I’m not going out and partying,” adds Nikki. “I’m not hitting up my usual happy hours. There’s no wine in my life. It’s like having a hangover. I think what’s been the hardest part on me is feeling this hangover every day.”

She continues “My eating habits have changed. I thought that, ‘Okay, I’m gonna stay healthy. I’m going to be good.’ But when it kicks in, this feeling, you only want french fries and ketchup. Vegetables sound disgusting. Anything healthy, honestly, sounds disgusting.”

But despite the “hangovers,” both Brie and Nikki are grateful for how things turned out.

“Even though I feel really sick, like, can’t believe I’m going to be a mom soon,” says Nikki. “I’m going to have this person to take care of for the rest of their life and help them do the right things and just show them the way of the world. That’s amazing!”

“It’s something I’ve dreamed of my whole life,” adds Nikki, who was previously engaged to wrestler-actor John Cena (they called it quits in July 2018).

“So when I thought it was going to be taken, for me, it was really difficult. I was just like, gosh, I can’t imagine life without being a mom and experiencing the miracle of life and raising a child. I’m just so family-oriented that I couldn’t imagine not having that family life.”

October 4th, 2016
What can we expect in the upcoming season of the new show ‘Total Bellas’:
Nikki: “We’re so excited for ‘Total Bellas on October 5th at 8 pm only on E! and I have to say, some of the best things about the show is it was just a very compelling season. Don’t get me wrong, you have a lot of fun and funny moments but it’s really crazy what the camera captured within those six episodes: me going through my neck surgery, (Daniel) Bryan retiring, Brie on the road to retirement because she wants to be a mother, John (Cena) rehabbing his shoulder, our mom getting married for the third time but they say third time is a charm and our brother and his lack of passion in our mom’s company and this all happen under mine and John’s roof. And so, I have to say, just the wedding stuff and Bryan’s meltdown, there so many things contained in these six episodes that is just unreal.”
Brie: “(Bryan’s meltdown) wasn’t too bad; it’s a situation I think a lot of people can relate to because I feel like a point in all our lives we get something dear to us taken away and you never teach yourselves how to be ready for something like that, you just can’t. I feel that when people see Bryan, they’re going to just understand and root for him and go ‘Wow, I’m not alone in this.’ “
Brie Bella on Bryan’s transition from the ring to his roles in the Cruiserweight Classic and as Smackdown GM: “Actually, it’s been great and the great thing about it is Bryan is so happy. He loves being the GM of Smackdown, he loves hosting Talking Smack on the WWE Network, he loved working with all the Cruiserweights on the CWC. He’s honestly on cloud nine and being his wife and best friend, I’m just so happy to see how great he’s doing because you don’t know how long it will take and you know the next happy day. I think the best thing for him was becoming the Smackdown GM; I just think it has done wonders for Bryan.”
Nikki Bella on her return from neck surgery, rejoining the Women’s Revolution and Smackdown roster: “I truly feel like I’m the living Wonder Woman. It’s been a surreal, crazy journey but one that I feel grateful for because it’s given me such an inner strength that I didn’t realize I’d had. I’m truly happy to have that support system around me: Brie, Bryan, of course John, my mom, and my brother, and you get to see that all on ‘Total Bellas’ which is cool. They really were my support system. Yes, we definitely had our ups and downs and there were some very tough moments. Bryan and I got into our first fight, and that was crazy because I never realized that you fought with brother or sister-in-law’s like that but I guess you do. We’re just very different people but at the end of the day we still love each other. It’s just been amazing to be back and be on Smackdown live with both John and Bryan.”
Was there an adjustment to having everyone under the same roof at Nikki and John’s house:
Nikki: “A major adjustment; it was not easy.
Brie: “It wasn’t what I imaging it to be. I think it was a bigger adjustment for the hippie and I think it was an even bigger adjustment for my mom and my brother just because they didn’t realize the chaos they were walking into. I think for everyone, we all after the first couple of days were like ‘Woah, what did we get ourselves into?’
Nikki: ‘Yeah, but you know, when I’m at home, it’s crazy, I walk around and I see empty bedrooms and walk through the hallways and I miss it too; I miss having my family around and you’ll see it, when you watch ‘Total Bellas’ you’ll see the very special moments and the hard ones (as well) but there’s moments where I miss them. I go, ‘Oh I got so annoyed with them, but man, I miss them.’ “
Brie Bella on what she has been up to since her retirement: “A lot of baby making and working on BirdieBee. For myself, I went into an industry I wasn’t educated on and I thought ‘Hey, yeah, let’s do this. Awesome.’ And I’ve really had to educate myself in the fashion world: undergarments, fabrics and learning their language but it’s been really great. I’ve just been enjoying life and taking the opportunities to hang out with my family and friends and doing things that I didn’t get to do when I was always on the road.”
Nikki Bella on their new company BirdieBee: “BirdieBee is going really well; Brie and I are kind of taking it in a different direction. We are taking it into our own hands so we’re not going to have products for a little bit longer but we’re just so excited- we have these videos coming out and we’re really trying to build our community of women empowerment, of educating on feminine health. But the next year is going to be really, really amazing for BirdieBee; there’s going to be a lot of amazing things we’ve been working on and we’re just so excited to share with the world. I’ll admit, the one thing I have to learn on starting my own company is having patience; I like to get things done and so I always forget ‘Oh, wait. They’re all working on a bunch of other things.” And I expect everyone to get things done all quick. So, patience is definitely something I’ve had to work on, through all of this, but I’m just really excited so eventually share our panties with the world; to share our feminine health products with the world and just to really get BirdieBee out there.”
Brie Bella On the Women’s Revolution and their part in the process: “That has been, in the last decade, our number one priority- for it to get to exactly where it went to at WrestleMania 32 and that kind of passion and the blood, sweat and tears. At the end of the day, you’re going to go through obstacles but with passion, you will be successful and you will accomplish whatever your dreams are.”
Brie Bella on having her final match at WrestleMania:“It was really bittersweet; it was an amazing moment and a moment I’ll always remember and especially on a historic night for women but it was a historic night for women where here is the start of something so great and I’m like ‘Wait, this is my ending?’ But it was very bittersweet, it was very sad but it was such an honor and so surreal the spot I was given, it was great.”
Nikki Bella on upcoming talent on the Smackdown Roster:“You know, being back on Smackdown Live, I’m very excited for the Smackdown Women’s Division. There’s such new, exciting talent from Becky Lynch to Alexa Bliss to Carmella. I’m very excited to see what these girls are going to do moving forward. Becky Lynch, right now being our Smackdown Women’s Champion, I think that was so well deserved and I’m just excited to see how she’s going to be carrying our division and being the face of it. Don’t get me wrong, I still have my eye on the prize, and I would definitely love to get into a storyline with Becky and really fight for that title, so hopefully one day we can, but I’m very excited for the Women’s division on the blue side; there’s so much potential and I can’t wait to see where it’s at in a year and then beyond.”
Nikki Bella on the hardest thing to overcome in terms of getting the Women’s Revolution going: “I think you sort of put a pressure on yourself; that you have to deliver every week. You’re expected to do certain things and you can’t ever have that moment of falling because then everyone is like ‘Oh, this is why there shouldn’t be a revolution.” I think that was the hardest, the pressure you put on yourself every week to give an amazing performance and it’s already become fun once you can put that pressure away but it’s kind of like what we are doing on the Smackdown Women’s Division, we, at our last pay-per-view (Backlash), we brought the Women’s Division up to a certain level and we want to keep going so we continue to put this pressure on ourselves to succeed and do everything expected so that’s the hardest part.”
