Nikki Bella and Fiancé Artem Chigvintsev welcomed their bouncing baby boy on Friday, a day before her twin sister welcomed her second child.
“7/31/2020 💙 Our baby boy is here and we couldn’t be HAPPIER and more in LOVE! Everyone is safe and healthy,” the Total Bellas star announced on Sunday.
Nikki and former Dancing with the Stars pro Artem got engaged during a trip to France in November 2019. Then in January, Nikki and her twin sister, Brie who was already mom to 3-year-old daughter, Birdie Joe, revealed to PEOPLE exclusively that they were both pregnant, and their due dates were less than two weeks apart.
“I can’t believe I’m going to be a mom soon. I’m going to have this person to take care of for the rest of their life and help them do the right things and just show them the way of the world. That’s amazing!” Nikki told PEOPLE at that time.
The star added, “It’s something I’ve dreamed of my whole life.”
Since then, Nikki and Brie have been documenting their pregnancies and twinning baby bumps on social media and their YouTube channel. During a May episode of The Bellas Podcast, the Nikki revealed she and Chigvintsev had a “heart scare” while at a doctor’s appointment.
“Artem and I had to drive to L.A. to get our baby double-checked because [my doctors] thought they saw something in our baby’s heart,” Nikki said.
“Everything came out great, which we were so blessed and happy about,” she continued, saying earlier in the conversation that she’s “so grateful to God that the baby’s very healthy.”
Upon the arrival of her first child, Nikki said, “My baby and I are healthy. I feel so grateful for that because of what the world is going through and the people that are dying and struggling, but obviously this is not what I imagined.”
The first-time dad also posted a similar picture as the one posted by Nikki on Instagram, with the caption: “7/31/2020 please welcome our precious baby boy Chigvintsev 👶 proud of my love @thenikkibella.”
