Nikki shared the amazing black and white photos on Monday. The snaps featured the “Total Bellas” stars back to back while they each used one of their hands to cover up their tops while the other cradled their gorgeous baby bumps. The twins are only one week apart and are pushing through the home stretch. Nikki included a lengthy caption that expressed how grateful she is to go on this journey with her sister Brie.
“Pregnancy has been an incredible journey so far, even through[sic] some of the toughest times we have faced in this world so far and through some of the most beautiful life changing times as well. I have embraced the changes of the human body, even though that can be tough at times,” she wrote.
Nikki continued, “I have embraced the feeling of being uncomfortable knowing I am growing a life that will be one of my own. I have already felt the lioness in me come out even more knowing that I am ready to protect, teach, love and guide. And to go through all of this with my twin sister? Goodness I would say I am one lucky woman that God knew my timing of becoming a mom was divine. Can’t wait to meet you little boy in 4 weeks. ❤️?✨”
While most of the attention was focused on the twins, it’s important not to forget the father of Nikki’s son, Artem Chigvintsev, and how stoked Nikki said he was on the pics… especially because he got to take his shirt off too!
“Covered up a little here for my A @theartemc Loved this moment with him!” Nikki captioned another He was so nervous it was the cutest thing ever! Goodness he is going to be such an amazing Dad. I just can’t wait for it! ?” she wrote.
The gender of Nikki and Artem’s baby was a secret for some time because they were obligated to keep it under wraps until the season finale of “Total Bellas” aired. The last episode featured a small gender reveal party and fans were ecstatic when they learned that they are expecting a boy.
“Can’t wait for our little boy to arrive in August!! ?” Nikki wrote on social media immediately after the season finale was over.
“Beyond Cloud Nine ? Oh Baby Boy,” she added.
During the episode, Artem called his mother in Russia to share the news, “It’s a boy!” he said in Russian.
