‘This pregnancy has been a special one’: Brie and Nikki Bella go completely nude in joint maternity shoot and reveal their symptoms and cravings have been ‘identical’
Brie and Nikki Bella stripped down for a joint maternity shoot as they prepare to give birth within weeks of each other.
The 36-year-old Total Bellas stars were shot completely naked with their dark locks tumbling down their shoulders as they posed back to back.
Brie shared some images from the stunning photoshoot on Monday, writing on Instagram, ‘This pregnancy has been a special one. To experience this with my sister during a time of uncertainty and turmoil has been a blessing.
‘As Twins I kept wondering if our bodies were going to change the same or if we’d be different. It’s crazy how identical our pregnancies have become…from cravings to symptoms.
‘We are coming to the end of our pregnancy and this will be one I’ll remember forever. Can’t wait to meet her little boy and I can’t wait to see what I’ll be having.
She ended her note, ‘This pregnancy started as a surprise and I’m happy to end it as one. #twins #pregnant #37weeks’
Brie is expecting her second child with husband Daniel Bryan, with whom she already has two-year-old daughter Birdie.
Nikki, who is due two weeks after Brie, is expecting a son with her fiancé Artem Chigvintsev.
On her Instagram page, Nikki also shared some of the striking photos including one of her with Artem.
Nikki wrote of her pregnancy experience, ‘Pregnancy has been an incredible journey so far, even through some of the toughest times we have faced in this world so far and through some of the most beautiful life changing times as well.
‘I have embraced the changes of the human body, even though that can be tough at times. I have embraced the feeling of being uncomfortable knowing I am growing a life that will be one of my own.
‘I have already felt the lioness in me come out even more knowing that I am ready to protect, teach, love and guide. And to go through all of this with my twin sister? Goodness I would say I am one lucky woman that God knew my timing of becoming a mom was divine. Can’t wait to meet you little boy in 4 weeks.’
Nikki recently said she is on the verge of a ‘massive meltdown’ as she nears her due date.
The retired professional wrestler said the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has left her worried for the future, as she feels like ‘breaking’ mentally.
Speaking to listeners during an episode of her The Bellas Podcast, she said: ‘I’m not gonna lie, I literally almost had my first massive meltdown – breakdown, whatever you want to call it – a few days ago.’
Nikki also recalled a conversation she had with her twin sister in which she said she was ‘about to lose it’.
The Total Bellas star added: ‘I was like, “Brie, I’m literally about to lose it. I’m sick of being inside. I’m sick of not being a part of the world. I’m sick of being in the heat. And I can’t even go on my walks and I think that’s what’s made it worse.
‘I mean, it sounds like such silly things that you can’t do but it is crazy. Like, mentally, I am breaking.’

Brie then tried to reassure her sister by telling her the ‘end of pregnancy’s always the toughest’, and said she went through something similar whilst waiting for Birdie to arrive.
She explained: ‘I remember that with Birdie. And I feel like that is mother nature’s way of being like, you want the baby out so bad you don’t care about doing natural birth or feeling pain – you’re like, “Just get the baby out!”‘.
However, both twins are worried about what the future may hold in relation to the global health crisis.
Nikki said: ‘The uncertainty is just killing me because we’re maybe having expectations of a second wave of COVID-19 in the fall. I feel like we’re getting hit with a second wave right now, and then I’m like, okay, so is that a third wave in the fall? Are we just constantly gonna have these waves?’
