Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev celebrated the birth of their son on July 31st, and it was a very happy time for them. It was also a very painful experience for Nikki Bella.
During the Bellas Podcast, Nikki opened up about delivering her son Matteo. She might not be able to pronounce Matteo’s middle name yet, but she’s learning. She also had quite an experience she will never forget while Matteo came into the world.
“I will say pushing is the hardest workout I’ve ever done in my entire life. I give it to you moms! I mean, I have been slammed on mats. I have broken my neck. I had played soccer competitively for 13 years, competitive track…nothing is harder than that.”
Nikki wore a mask the entire time she was in labor. She only took off her mask to push which she did for two hours straight. She revealed that her doctor told her that she had two more rounds where he was going to let her push, and then it was time to have a C-section. Nikki didn’t want a C-section, or the scar that goes with it.
“I’m shocked my insides didn’t shoot out into my doctor’s face. I almost ripped the handlebars off [of the hospital bed]. I pushed so hard and on that last round, I pushed Matteo out. And he came out vaginally, and that was the most incredible feeling ever.”
Thankfully, Nikki Bella’s painful experience of childbirth is behind her until she wants to go for baby #2. Bella has been through a lot in the ring, but this was certainly an experience that she will never forget.
