- Nikki Bella and Brie Bella just shared postpartum selfies 10 weeks after giving birth to their sons, Matteo and Buddy.
- The Total Bella stars discussed the importance of self-care for new moms and also being proud of their postpartum bodies.
- The twins announced their pregnancies in January and gave birth to their sons just days apart from each other.
Nikki Bella, 36, and her twin sister Brie Bella, proudly showed off their postpartum bodies in two candid photos on Instagram as part of a partnership with the postpartum brand Frida Mom. The professional wrestlers, who gave birth just days apart this summer, encouraged new moms to take care of themselves and to embrace their postpartum figures.
Nikki, who welcomed son Matteo with fiancé Artem Chigvintsev on July 31, shared a photo where she's laying in bed wearing Frida Mom postpartum underwear. "I am so incredibly happy to finally be a Mama! It's so important as mamas to take care of ourselves after birth and feel proud of our bodies and its strengths!" she wrote in the caption. "Thank you so much @fridamom for your amazing postpartum underwear! Keeping this first-time mom as comfortable as possible and I didn’t have to steal the fishnet undies from the hospital! lol."
Brie and husband Daniel Bryan welcomed their second child Buddy on August 1. She opened up about her postpartum experience in a new Instagram, also wearing a set of Frida Mom underwear.
"It's been such a magical time✨ After giving birth it's essential to take care of yourself so you can take care of the new love in your life too!" she wrote in the caption. "Recovery the second time around has been so different in a good way because I was way more prepared - thanks to @fridamom and especially their super comfortable and durable underwear for my C section scar.
"Let's be proud of our bodies and be open and honest about the process so future moms can feel more prepared too!" she added.
Back in January, the Total Bella stars announced they were both pregnant at the same time, and their due dates were weeks apart.
"[It was] a total surprise," Nikki told People in an interview. "It took even me a good week to come to terms with like, 'Oh my gosh, I'm pregnant.' I'm not ready for it."
"People are going to think that's a joke," Brie told People. "We both are shocked. People are going to think we planned it, but you can't really plan pregnancy!"
"When it came to Friday, I accepted the fact that I wouldn't be having a vaginal delivery," Brie added. "But it was crazy because I was like, well maybe she was going to have her baby on the 30th, but when she went through the night and she was still laboring and hadn't had it, I was like, whoa, maybe our babies will be born on the same day." In the end, their babies were born just 22 hours apart. The twin connection is so real!
