Brie Bella Shares The Story of Her Daughter’s Difficult Birth: “It Was The Complete Opposite of What I Expected”


While “Total Bellas” star Nikki Bella is preparing for her upcoming wedding with John Cena, her sister Brie has taken on the role of “mom” to a beautiful baby girl, Birdie. While Birdie and Brie are both happy and healthy now, Birdie’s birth was anything but easy. In fact, Brie says it was nothing like she thought it would be.

“It was the complete opposite of what I expected,” she told Mini Magazine. “I was ten days late and had to be induced. I thought I could labor naturally but after nine hours, I couldn’t handle the pain.”

As an incredible athlete, Brie assumed giving birth would be relatively easy. “I pushed for three hours straight and couldn’t get Birdie out. After 21 hours of labor, it ended in an emergency C-section,” she said. “Birdie had a 14-inch head.”


Regardless, Brie’s thrilled that Birdie is now here and a part of the family.

“Even though it wasn’t the experience I had in mind, I’m so happy Birdie came into this world safely,” she said.
