Less than year ago, John Cena and Nikki Bella shocked the world when they announced they were mutually calling off their engagement. The news came just weeks before they were set to walk down the aisle.
Not long after she and Cena split up, Bella announced her engagement to Artem Chigvintsev, her partner from Dancing With The Stars.
Now, just a few months later, Bella announced she is expecting the birth of her first child. But that’s just the beginning of the news.
Both the Bella sisters, Nikki and Brie, are pregnant and have due dates just over a week apart.
Nikki announced she is 13 weeks pregnant in a post on Instagram.
