Nikki Bella, star of the hit TV series Total Bellas, showed off her post-baby body on Instagram recently telling her fans that the weight gain has not been easy.
Nikki and her fiancé, Artem Chigvintsev welcomed their son, Matteo Artemovich Chigvintsev into the world on July 31, 2020. Bella posted Matteo’s first photo on Instagram revealing his name, birthdate, height and weight.
Most of her fans are used to seeing Nikki Bella working out, eating healthy and in the best shape. Bella is now five weeks postpartum and she wants to get her body back.
Bella told her followers that it’s not easy for her to show her body off to the world like this, but it is “the raw and real me.” She says social media doesn’t show the hardship of getting your body back after a pregnancy.
After explaining that some of the weight was put on by “having a lot of fun”, Bella has 18 more pounds to go before she reaches her pre-pregnancy weight. She said it would be a lot easier to blame COVID and living in the heat of Arizona as to why she hasn’t been working out. The reality is that she has picked up some unhealthy eating habits along with not working out. Bella noted her fiancé is a very good chef!
The mom informed her fans that this weight loss journey is a healthy one for her baby boy because she still plans on breastfeeding him. Bella also thinks that the curves that changed her body have been worth it because being a mom is very rewarding.
