Many women struggle with their postpartum bodies. Total Bellas star Nikki Bella admitted in the past it’s been a struggle for her, but she’s on the right path. Through diet, exercise, and a little extra help, she recently revealed her body almost looks like it did before she gave birth to her son Matteo.
Back in February, Nikki Bella posted on Instagram that she used Emsculpt Neo to help her body get back to normal. Now, it seems like the procedure combined with Nikki’s own efforts paid off.
“With healthy eating, increase of workout activity and Emsculpt Neo this Mama is almost back to her pre baby body! 💪🏼👏🏼” the former wrestler posted on Instagram. She smiles happily and shows off her abs.
The Bella twins are both advocates for body positivity, but also want people to do what makes them feel comfortable. For Nikki, that includes different cosmetic procedures. In the twins’ memoir Incomparable, Nikki discusses her choice to get breast enhancement surgery. She says in the book that large breasts were something she always wanted and felt much more confident after she had them. Being able to do what she feels is right for her body feels empowering.
Nikki Bella is doing well these days after a battle with postpartum depression
Nikki Bella has also been an advocate for awareness surrounding postpartum depression. After giving birth to Matteo, she felt incredibly isolated and abandoned while her fiance Artem Chigvintsev competed on Dancing With The Stars. Artem and his partner Kaitlyn Bristowe went on to win the championship. While Nikki was genuinely happy for them, she did feel a little jealous.
“It’s not about her and him,” she confessed to her sister Brie during an episode of Total Bellas this season. “Like, I don’t have a fear of Artem going off. That’s not it. It’s wanting what she’s getting from him. Can he come home and laugh with me? Can he come home and ask me how I’m doing? Like, I want to feel wanted and sexy.”
It’s clear to see that Nikki feels much more confident these days and fans love it.
The couple had a very positive experience with couples’ counseling
And there’s more good news to share — Nikki and Artem’s relationship is doing much better these days. After Artem won his first Mirrorball Trophy, he and Nikki moved to Napa. They started couples’ therapy, which is going quite well according to Us Weekly.
“It’s helped us tremendously,” Nikki said during an interview with the publication. “We don’t even have to keep going because it’s — I mean, it’s good to always have checkups — but all of a sudden, our sessions turned into, like, you just sit there. You’re like, ‘Oh, I’m really loving right now. Like, there’s no problems.’ It’s like we didn’t know what to talk about.”
