Bella shared that there was no fussing and everyone had their designated duty. She remembered growing up in lots of laughter as her dad often threw his jokes around, being a delight around his children.

However, Eddie and Nicole had a rule which they enforced, making it possible that none of their children join the entertainment scene before the age of 18, the reason being that the couple wanted their kids to have normal childhoods.

The young starlet relayed that she in particular was unhappy with the rule because she caught the acting bug at a young age and longed to appear in movies. Bella joked that she begged to be an extra sometimes.

However, the youngster got lucky in her 18th year when Eddie’s blockbuster classic, “Coming to America,” was preparing to return to the big screen with a sequel. Bella saw the opportunity and made sure not to miss it.

Once when she and her dad appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” she recalled how her father made sure she auditioned for her role as a princess in “Coming 2 America.”
