Congratulations are in order for Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan.
The WWE Divas Champion, 33, and her WWE SmackDown General Manager husband, 35, welcomed their first child – daughter Birdie Joe Danielson – on Tuesday, May 9, E! News reports.
The Total Divas star and her husband – whose real name is Bryan Danielson – welcomed their firstborn over a week late. Birdie Joe arrived at 11: 58 p.m. and weighed in at 8 lbs., 10 oz., measuring 21 inches long.
“There is no better feeling in the world than meeting your daughter. I can’t even express the overwhelming joy and love that Bryan and I are feeling,” the new mom said in a statement. “Now we know what parents mean about the love you feel when you first meet your child. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers on the safety of Birdie coming into this world.”
During her pregnancy, Bella dished on her daughter’s name.
“Joe, her middle name, is after my grandfather—his name was Joseph, and he meant the world to me,” she shared. “Birdy is because my husband and his whole family are ‘B’s. And he married me, a ‘B’ too, so his one request was that our kids have ‘B’ names. I didn’t realize how hard it was to find girl ‘B’ names, but we both came across Birdy and knew that was it!”
And she talked about documenting the birth on Total Bellas.
“I’m going to allow them to document me giving birth and having this little miracle,” she said. “But they won’t be with me and Bryan for a few weeks after the baby’s born. It’s such a special time that I don’t want the cameras interfering. I’m not even interested in being on social media. I just want my husband and me to be a couple figuring out that first month privately. We plan to enjoy every moment without a producer saying, ‘Hey, can we move everything over here?’ I just want to sit on the couch and breastfeed my baby.”
Congratulations to the Bella-Danielson family!
