Brie Bella & Daniel Bryan expecting first child

Put those Brie Bella comeback plans on hold.

The Total Divas and Total Bellas star’s stated reason for hanging up her boots at WrestleMania was because she and her husband, Daniel Bryan, were ready to start a family. Brie’s said many times she “can’t take bumps with a baby bump”. DB joked at his own retirement in February that he was gonna get lots of practice in the act of babymaking.

That practice has paid off.

E! and WWE both announced this afternoon that Brie is with child!

Brie is quoted in E! News’ story as saying:

It has always been a dream of mine to become a mother. Now that it is finally real, it fills me up with so much happiness. I can't wait to see my husband, Bryan, be a father to our child. I am so excited for this new chapter in our lives.

The former WWE champ is also excited:

The day we found out, I just couldn't stop smiling. We are so excited to be parents. Every time I look at Brie's stomach, I'm amazed that there is a little life in there.

We’re amazed too! And so excited for the Danielsons!
