‘Thanks! I have a good guestroom, I guess,’ Brie replied, before the Total Bellas stars laughed together.
Nikki and Brie both welcomed sons in July, just a day apart. The pair admitted it wasn’t planned to have their children at the same time.
‘It just happened in twin land. It’s crazy because we both weren’t trying,’ Brie said. ‘When I found out I was pregnant, she found out two days later.’

Brie admitted that having her son, Buddy, so close to Nikki’s son, Matteo, meant it was almost like having twins again for their family.
‘The way that Buddy came in so closely after Matteo, it made my mum feel like she was having twins all over again,’ Brie said.
‘It was just really special for our whole family.’

Nikki is married to Dancing with the Stars pro Artem Chigvintsev, while Brie is married to wrestler Daniel Bryan, whose real name is Bryan Danielson.
The duo agreed it was a blessing having children so close in age.
‘They are literally like twin boys,’ Nikki said.
‘It is cute when you see them together. You can tell they really calm each other and they hold each other’s hand. They do act like brothers.’

‘When you get the call saying they want to induct you, it gives me goose bump is, it just makes you feel like everything you did was right and special.’
