Brie also shared an adorable family photo on her Instagram page on Sunday afternoon, showing a close-up of her hand, Daniel’s, and their newborn’s all clasped together. They chose to keep their child’s face hidden from the camera, cleverly using the positioning of their hands to shield him from view.
The mother-of-two appeared to be in the hospital as she held her newborn; several of her hospital bracelets and bandages were still in place.
She said she and Daniel were “overwhelmed with joy” in her caption and assured her 7.7 million followers that everyone is healthy.
Fans have been eagerly waiting for Brie to give birth, especially after she became pregnant at the same time as her twin sister and fellow wrestler, Nikki Bella. The two previously gushed about expecting children at the same time, and they were both expecting sons. Nikki is still pregnant, but is due to give birth soon.
The WWE Champion also shares 3-year-old daughter Birdie with her husband. She was born in 2017.
After Birdie’s birth, Brie previously admitted that she and Daniel were struggling to conceive a second child. She said she wasn’t able to get pregnant and wondered if it was a sign to stop trying.
“I think the universe was telling me something, like, it’s not a great time to have another baby,” Brie said in 2019.
Thankfully, the couple’s luck changed, and now they have a beautiful son to add to their growing family.
Brie’s Instagram post received tons of attention from her fans and friends. Her upload quickly racked up more than 441,000 likes and over 20,300 comments from people eager to congratulate the couple.
