Nikki announced the arrival of her son via Instagram on August 2. “7/31/2020 Our baby boy is here and we couldn’t be HAPPIER and more in LOVE! Everyone is safe and healthy,” she captioned a photo of her son’s tiny hand.

Earlier that day, Brie revealed she had given birth to her son one day after Nikki. She and Bryan, 39, are also the parents of 3-year-old daughter Birdie.

“It’s a BOY! 8-1-20,” she wrote alongside the photo. “We are overwhelmed with joy and everyone is healthy!!!”

Nikki detailed her plans for staying happy and healthy postpartum on an episode of the twins’ “The Bellas Podcast” earlier this month.

“I’m also gonna make sure though, at the same time, that I’m making ‘me time,’ even in the beginning, so I know that I stay a happy, healthy mom,” she said. “Like, I have goals for wanting to get my body back in a very healthy way and keeping meditation and just like I’ve been doing with him right now in the womb. We keep going with that.”
