Nikki Bella revealed she was pregnant with her first child two days ago and now she’s filling up her social media with photos of her baby bump and her “baby daddy,” fiancé Artem Chigvintsev. Keeping her pregnancy quiet since they returned home from their romantic European getaway in November, the 36-year-old “Total Bellas” star has been dying to flaunt her growing belly and now she can. Taking to her Instagram early Friday morning, Nikki Bella took a selfie showing her “Dancing With The Stars” beau tenderly holding her baby bump.
Wearing a tight black shirt to show her tummy has sprouted, Nikki Bella made sure to hold the camera high enough to get their newest addition in the photo. Sporting a leather jacket and shades to block the sunlight, the former “WWE Diva” is already glowing! “Baby Daddy,” she captioned the sweet family photo while also adding a red heart emoji. Artem Chigvintsev is already taking his role as a loving dad seriously. Wearing a casual white tee with round sunglasses, the dancer is seen smiling sweetly while rubbing his wife-to-be’s baby bump.
She has a lot to be happy about because hours before this photo, she shared on her IG story that they already have the results of their baby’s gender. Holding up a piece of folded paper, Nikki Bella said it was “our baby’s golden gender reveal ticket!!” Early this morning, the former wrestler also showed she still has a 6-pack, despite being two months pregnant. Taking her shirt off to reveal her bare bump, she asked her fans, “Wonder how long I can keep my top abs?” But Nikki Bella isn’t the only one in her family pregnant. Her twin Brie Bella is expecting too and they are due within one week of each other!
Speaking exclusively to PEOPLE, the Bella Twins promised it wasn’t planned. “Wait, twins being pregnant at the same time?” Brie Bella told the outlet. “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!” This will be Nikki Bella’s first child and Brie Bella’s second. Despite already being a mom to her 2-year-old Birdie, Brie revealed she always thought her daughter with WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan would be their only child. After trying to conceive for nearly 8 months, Brie Bella said they came to the conclusion they were only “meant to have one child.” So, they were “shocked” when she wound up pregnant.
Nikki Bella also revealed the moment she found out she was pregnant after their trip to Europe and ahead of Thanksgiving. “When we got home, I took a test two days before Thanksgiving, and when I saw the positive sign, I was like, ‘Oh, s—!’” As for Nikki Bella, she revealed they weren’t even trying. “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,” she told PEOPLE. Feeling like it may have been twin pains since Brie had just told her she was expecting, Nikki said she went home and took a pregnancy test. Turns out, she too was expecting!
