Yesterday (June 30), Nikki & Brie Bella both shared the news their mother Kathy was heading into surgery to have a mass removed from her brain stem. Birdie’s grandmother was having Bells Palsy-like symptoms doctors determined were being caused by the growth, and scheduled the operation to remove it. In making the announcement on their online channels, the twins asked fans for their prayers.
Thankfully, it seems things went smoothy. Nikki provided an update last night, thanking fans and step-father John Laurinaitis, for their support.

Mama Bella had a very successful surgery! Can’t thank you all enough for your prayers, love, light and beautiful words! Can’t wait for my Mom to see how loved she is. It’s going to mean the world to her. Now prayers for her recovery! And thank you to the surgeons who took such incredible care of her. Can’t thank you all enough! Feeling very blessed and grateful right now. So relieved and happy. Can’t wait to squeeze my Mom! She’ll be in ICU for a few days but when I can she’s getting a really big hug and kiss! @mrjohnlaurinaitis thank you for being her and our family’s rock! We all couldn’t have gotten through today without you! Love you! ❤️
Get well soon, Mama Bella. You’re about to have more grandkids to spoil... and season six of Total Bellas to film.
