Total Bellas stars Nikki and Brie Bella have spent a lifetime looking alike and talking alike and doing pretty much everything by each other’s side. But never did they think they would be pregnant at the same time!

And believe it or not, they are!

On Wednesday (Jan. 29,) the two former wrestling stars announced that they are not only both expecting, but they are due only a week and a half apart.

“Wait, twins being pregnant at the same time?” Brie tells PEOPLE magazine. “People are going to think that’s a joke. We both are shocked. People are going to think we planned it, but you can’t really plan pregnancy!”

“[It was] a total surprise,” Nikki adds. “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.”

Fans will recall that Brie is married to pro wrestler Daniel Bryan and the two already have one child together. Nikki, however, is not married, but engaged to Dancing with the Stars standout Artem Chigvintsev.

“I was in yoga, and I kept getting this feeling that you need to take a pregnancy test, but I wasn’t even late yet,” says Nikki, who broke off her engagement to longtime love John Cena back in 2018. “And so I’m like, ‘Why do I keep having this feeling? Am I getting twin vibes from (Brie?) Because she just told me she’s pregnant?’ I didn’t tell Artem at this point. I just want to do this by myself. When I came back in, and it said pregnant, I had to sit down for a second.”

Nikki took to Instagram to share a photo of the twins with baby strollers saying in part,  “I’M GOING TO BE A MOM!! It’s something I have wanted to be my whole life. I was definitely shocked when I found out. And so nervous! I wasn’t expecting it and felt I wasn’t ready but this journey of life is unpredictable. I thank God every day and night for bringing this amazing blessing and miracle into my life! I am already SO IN LOVE!! My baby and I have already fought the flu together and had victory! So I know we can take on anything in this world we want to… together.”

Oh and she also gave props to her fiancé Artem. ” Oh and @theartemc your pure joy, bliss, love and happiness has meant everything to me! To already watch you step up to be the best Dad for this little one makes my heart smile so big! I know we aren’t husband and wife yet but I love our commitment to this child already.”

Rest assured that this pair of pregnancies are sure to be documented on Total Bellas come spring when it returns to television.
