Nikki Bella and her twin sister Brie Bella held the first episode of their "The Bellas Podcast" since they gave birth to their newborn babies and shared details of their experiences with listeners.
The Bellas are back! Famous twins Nicki Bella and Brie Bella returned to their "The Bellas Podcast" for the first time since their respective childbirths.
Brie and Nikki gave birth to baby boys 22 hours apart. While this was Brie's second child with husband Daniel Bryan, it marked Nikki's first childbirth experience.

In the podcast, the twins revealed details of their respective deliveries to their fans. Nikki's baby son, Matteo, whom she shares with her partner, Artem Chigvintsev, joined his mom and aunt.
Nikki narrated how her water broke while she was at the doctor's office. It was a surprise for the first-time mother, who initially planned to get induced at 39 weeks.
Brie was with her sister during that appointment with the doctor. She expressed surprise that her sister went to labor before her. It was something she never saw coming.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Brie could not join her sister and Chigvintsev in the labor room. The expectant couple managed to get to the hospital in time on a day which was the summer's hottest.
Nikki and Brie were eager to meet each other's babies, and when they did, it turned out to be a special moment.
What followed for Nikki was a 22-hour labor, which was made more difficult because of the rising temperatures and the fact that she had to have her mask on always.
Nikki described pushing as the hardest thing she ever did in her life and hailed mothers for their efforts. Nikki tagged the moment Matteo eventually came out as the most incredible feeling ever, adding that her baby looked like her husband. She said:
"He had so much hair and it was wavy...I started crying. I was holding on to Matteo so much that the nurse was like, 'We really need to take him'…"
Brie said her sister called her some hours after giving birth. The next morning, she set out for the hospital for her scheduled c-section. Before leaving her home, her firstborn daughter, Birdie, asked her if she would come back with a baby.
Despite not seeing Nikki, Brie found comfort when she found out that she would have her procedure in the same room Birdie was born in. Brie and Bryan did not know the sex of their baby before delivery.
Hence, after the procedure, the medical staff handed Bryan the baby to disclose the gender. The proud father announced, with a happy face, that it was a boy.
Following their successful deliveries, Nikki and Brie were eager to meet each other's babies, and when they did, it turned out to be a special moment.
The sisters opened up to People, who they reserved special praise to in their podcast, about the special meeting. They revealed that it was emotional, and they sat on the bed, holding each other's babies.
