Watch: Nikki Bella Tells How New Mom Brie Is Doing

Birdie Joe Danielson has one strong mama!

While chatting with E! News at the 2017 Fox Upfronts in New York City, Nikki Bella revealed more exclusive details about the birth of Brie Bella's baby girl last week. "Birdie's amazing!" the proud auntie gushed. "She's just the cutest thing in the whole world. Honestly, immediate unconditional love!"

However, her fiancé John Cena, who was in attendance to promote American Grit, said he's still getting used to the idea of being an uncle. "It's uncharted waters for me," he explains. "But we'll figure out."

Nikki, on the other hand, is already fully on board. "[It's] very natural for me," she said. "It's my twin sister, you know what I mean? So, it's just an immediate bond there."

The 33-year-old WWE Superstar also gave an update on how her sister is recovering after welcoming her first child with husband Daniel Bryan (real name Bryan Danielson).

"She's feeling good," Nikki shared. "She's healing and she's feeling great every day. I mean, it's definitely a struggle for women in the beginning, and it should be. I saw what they put their bodies through, and oh my gosh! I give all the moms in the world so much credit. That is not easy, labor. I think it takes minimum a week to heal from that."


The Total Divas star, who was in the room for her niece's delivery, also revealed her sister was too fit to give birth naturally after 22 hours in labor!

"She tried to go natural, and it was like eight or 10 hours into it had to get an epidural and then in the end had to get a C-section," Nikki said. "Her abs were too tight! Go figure. Leave it to the WWE Superstar, abs too tight!"

Mama's still got it!
