The Bella Twins have revealed the names of their respective newborn sons they gave birth to weeks ago.
Nikki Bella gave birth to Matteo Artemovich Chigvintsev, her first child, while Brie Bella gave birth to Buddy Dessert, her second child. The two gave birth to their respective sons roughly a day apart from each other.
Speaking to People Magazine, The Bella Twins spoke on the last few weeks and their experiences giving birth with the two of them going into great detail.
"Artem and I were so not prepared. We barely had bags packed. I labored for 22 hours, and I pushed for two hours while wearing a mask because of COVID-19. It was 118 degrees in Phoenix, and our room wouldn't get colder than 76 degrees, so I was burning hot the whole time. I had two more rounds of pushing [to go] until my doctor said, 'You're going to have to have a c-section.' I said, 'No, he's coming out vaginally.' I looked at Artem [who was allowed in the room with a mask], and I go, 'Put on the Lumineers!' And literally we 'Hey Ho'-ed and '-Ophelia'-ed Matteo into this world," the new mom adds. "I have never pushed so hard in my life. I almost tore off the handlebars!" Nikki said.
"I was trying to have a VBAC [a vaginal birth after a previous cesarean section] because I had an emergency c-section with Birdie, but I forgot I make stubborn babies, and they don't like to come out. When Matteo came on the 31st, I was like, 'No matter what, my baby is coming at 9 a.m. tomorrow.' We didn't know it was a boy yet. This experience was so different from my last — just to walk into a c-section and be completely alert," she adds. "When they pulled out Buddy, they put down the curtain, and my husband was like, 'Oh, I got a boy!' We were really overwhelmed with joy," Brie said.
The Bella Twins are currently retired from in-ring competition and Brie's husband Daniel Bryan has not wrestled since he lost to AJ Styles in an Intercontinental Championship match on SmackDown earlier this summer.
