'Total Bellas': It's a boy! Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev throw a Mexican themed gender reveal party
It's a boy! Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev revealed the gender of their first child in the latest episode (June 11) of the show. The show took viewers on a journey revealing how Nikki found out she was pregnant to what went down until the pair found out they were expecting a baby boy. Previously, Nikki had complained to her sister, Brie Bella that she wasn't feeling well and it seemed like she was having symptoms of pregnancy.
This led Nikki to finally take the test and to her surprise, it came out positive. She broke the news to Artem, who became emotional, as it was everything he had dreamed of. To confirm the news, the pair decided to meet a doctor to know how far she was in her pregnancy. The doctor revealed Nikki was six weeks and four days pregnant. The joy of having a little one in their arms put a smile on their faces.
However, the road to this was not an easy one. Nikki had expressed her hesitation about the idea of marriage. She admitted to her sister Brie that she had freaked out after being engaged and wondered if everything was being rushed. Hearing her sister say this a day before and then coming with the news of pregnancy left Brie wondering nervously if Nikki would be ready for responsibly.
Nikki decided to talk about what she had been going through with her mother, Kathy Colace. She confessed that most of her insecurities about her relationship stemmed from the relationship her parents had while growing up. Kathy tried to make Nikki understand that she needed to let go of her storyline and make a new one with her future family.
Hearing these words calmed Nikki down who admitted it was time to focus on the little one who was about to come. She decided to throw a Mexican themed party to celebrate the joyful news. While Nikki was excited to find out the gender, Brie and her husband, Daniel Bryan decided to let it be a surprise.
While Nikki thought it would be a boy, Artem hinted he badly wanted it to be a girl. Everyone who attended the celebration placed their bets on the baby's gender. Finally, it was time to break that piñata to find out the gender.
The family started their countdown and when it was time, Nikki pulled the string to find blue confetti falling on the ground. Nikki was excited to find out it was a boy and admitted she had a feeling. Meanwhile, Artem, even though he wanted a baby girl, was happy about his growing family. He called his parents and informed them the good news as they all celebrated and eagerly waited for their little bundle of joy whose due date is August 6.
'Total Bellas' airs on Thursdays at 9 pm ET on E!
