Even more amazing is the fact that Nikki and her twin sister Brie were pregnant together. On top of this, they are experiencing the same symptoms. She told Us Weekly, it was bizarre. Both Total Bellas were having the “exact same symptoms.” Both twins were nauseous during their first trimester. Brie says she was never sick when pregnant with her daughter, Birdie. Now, the twins are experiencing morning sickness all day long. Brie says feels a little like car sickness.
Nikki says she didn’t realize how the body changes would feel during pregnancy. The Total Bellas star explains she doesn’t mean “outer, but inner.” Nikki says there are days she gets really exhausted. After all, her body is going through so much. She adds she was afraid the “hangover feeling” wouldn’t go away. However, she does feel better now. According to the mom-to-be, she can feel when her baby is experiencing a growth spurt. She says when this happens she feels so “out of it.” She describes it as a “crazy” feeling.
Nikki and Artem first announced their relationship in January 2019. A year later, they announced they are expecting a child together. At that time, Brie also announced her pregnancy. Wishing both moms all the best during their pregnancies, with no more health scares!
