She’s really enjoying mommy life!
Total Divas star Brie Bella has officially survived her first week as a mother after she gave birth to her daughter with husband Daniel Bryan! But now that she’s home after what she described as a “long and hard” labor with little Birdie Joe, the former WWE Divas champ is opening up about her first week as a new mom — and she shared her first-ever breastfeeding picture!
“Breastfeeding got me like,” the 33-year-old wrote in a selfie on Instagram, wearing what seems to be a nursing blanket and adding the sleeping face emoji. “Literally my most favorite thing ever but wow it’s exhausting…but I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
Brie gave birth to her healthy baby girl on May 9 — more than one week after her original due date, and she admitted that her first time in labor didn’t go as smoothly as she had hoped.
“I’m so lucky I had Bryan by my side the whole time, and then my sister by my side the whole time, which was amazing,” she gushed in a video update on the YouTube channel that she shares with her twin sister, Nikki Bella. “But at the end of something so hard and long, the most precious gift came to us so we couldn’t be happier.”
Birdie’s Auntie Coco — Total Bellas star Nikki Bella — revealed that she was in the delivery room with Bryan while Brie endured 22 hours of labor and she dished on some behind-the-scenes details.
“I give all the moms in the world so much credit, that is not easy — labor,” Nikki told E! News. “She tried to go natural and it was like eight or 10 hours into it [she] had to get an Epidural and then in the end, had to get a C-section — her abs were too tight.”
