Nikki Bella is thrilled to be the proud mama of her baby boy, Matteo Artemovich Chigvintsev!
The “Total Bellas” star shared a snap on Thursday that featured the new mom in a sports bra and maturity underwear. Nikki kept in tip-top shape while pregnant with her bundle of joy and is proud of her body. Now that she has finally started the motherhood chapter of her life, she can also enter in the realm of mommy influencers. She gave a special shoutout to the brand she was wearing as a promotion for the products.
As we previously mentioned, her post was a paid advertisement but Nikki knows how to promote a product while providing interesting content for her fan base.
“I am so incredibly happy to finally be a Mama! It’s so important as mamas to take care of ourselves after birth and feel proud of our bodies and its strengths! Thank you so much @fridamom for your amazing postpartum underwear! Keeping this first-time mom as comfortable as possible and I didn’t have to steal the fishnet undies from the hospital! lol
?? #fridapartner,” she captioned her post.
Matteo was born on July 31 and weighed 7 lbs and 3 oz. The little guy was 19 and 3/4 inches long! Nikki went into labor and gave birth just one day before her twin sister, Brie Bella, who gave birth on August 1.
Brie told PEOPLE that she was “a little mad” that Nikki’s water broke before hers. While only a week apart, Brie’s due date was before her sisters but that’s how unpredictable babies are.
“I compete at everything,” Nikki joked.
Of course, Nikki and Brie saved their baby picture reveal for the cover of PEOPLE magazine! She shared some behind the scenes footage from the cover photoshoot and it just so happened to be their first family photos together.
Nikki expressed how amazing it is to grace the cover of the legendary magazine.
“Feel so grateful and honored to grace the cover of @people magazine with @thebriebella and our Bella Boys. ? It was so important for us to showcase the real and raw side of postpartum. Brie and I here are less than two weeks postpartum. Most wouldn’t do photo shoots but we wanted to embrace the beauty of being new moms. The lack of sleep (literally have welts under my eyes from not sleeping lol), the glow, the weight gain, the excitement, the overall beauty of postpartum and motherhood! And just so grateful People let us showcase that!”
