There’s a baby Bella on board.
Just hours before the premiere of E!’s Total Bellas, Brie Bella confirmed she and husband Daniel Bryan are expecting their first child in Spring 2017 in an interview with E! News.
“It has always been a dream of mine to become a mother,” Brie told E! News. “Now that it is finally real, it fills me up with so much happiness.”
The couple has had an eye toward parenthood for some time. Brie retired from in-ring competition after WrestleMania 32 to focus on starting a family, and Bryan cited his desire to have children as partial motivation for his own retirement earlier this year as well.
“The day we found out, I just couldn’t stop smiling. We are so excited to be parents,” said Bryan. “Every time I look at Brie’s stomach, I’m amazed that there is a little life in there.”
The Total Bellas stars have also revealed they do not know the baby’s gender.
“I can’t wait to see my husband, Bryan, be a father to our child,” Brie added. “I am so excited for this new chapter in our lives.”
WWE.com extends its warmest wishes to the happy parents-to-be! See more of Brie and Bryan’s family life when Total Bellas premieres tonight at 8 ET/5 PT, only on E!.
