The 36-year-old twins appeared on Brie’s story, as she said: ‘Hey everyone. So, we know you guys have all been saying prayers and been thinking about Mama Bella. So, we wanted to update you all that she just got out of surgery, and she’s in recovery.

‘The surgery was successful, and now, she’s able to start her journey of recovery. So, thank you all for all the text messages, DMS, all the comments, everything. You have no idea how much that means to her.’ 

Nikki also updated her followers: ‘It took a lot longer than expected, but it’s because the doctors really wanted to make sure that everything was taken out, because if we didn’t catch this, it actually could have been fatal.

‘So grateful to God and her angels that we ended up finding this, that we had amazing surgeons and that she had a very successful surgery. Now, my mom’s on the road to recovery.

‘Thank you all so much for your prayers, your love, sending light. It truly helped our Gigi and Gato today… you all are our rocks, and we are grateful for all you Bella Army.’

They posted some photos of the 55-year-old earlier in the day, as they asked their fans for prayers.

Nikki wrote in part: ‘Our Mama Bella, our Gigi, our Gato is about to head into brain surgery. I ask for so many prayers, so much light and love sent her way.

‘Sadly they found what you can compare to a tumor on her brain stem that has been paralyzing her face. I have faith that the amazing doctors will do an incredible job and our Gigi will be on the road to recovery starting late today.’

Brie also shared: ‘Today my mom goes in for brain surgery. They realized she doesn’t have Bells Palsey but a mass on her brain stem…..couldn’t sleep because I was praying all night. She’s a strong one and I know all her angels will be with her.’
