In a strange turn of events, Nikki and Brie Bella were pregnant at the same time and due around the same date. In a recent update, the pair revealed one of them had given birth first.
Taking to their joint Twitter account, Nikki and Brie, 36, announced that they’d finally given birth to their respective children. Nikki confessed that she couldn’t “believe” she and her twin sister gave birth to their children less than a day apart.
She laughed and noted: “Honestly only us!” Showing her competitive spirit, Nikki also shared how she had beaten her sister by giving birth first.
