New Moms Katherine Schwarzenegger, Brie & Nikki Bella Talk About Sleep Deprivation

Katherine Schwarzenegger, Brie and Nikki Bella are bonding over lack of sleep.

The two new moms, who welcomed Lyla Pratt (Katherine), and Matteo Chigvintsev (Nikki) earlier this year, chatted on Katherine‘s Instagram Live this week and focused in on just how tiring it is to be a mom and how they’re figuring when to take some time for themselves while raising another human.

“You definitely have moments where it’s harder some days than it is other days,” Katherine shared. “You have [days] of feeling bad with a partner or wanting to make everything good again. For me, it’s also like if you want to get so many things done, [you should] sleep when the baby sleeps. [But] I don’t know how you do that. How does anything get done that you want to get done during the day?”

She added, “It’s really hard and then you need to catch up on your sleep obviously.”

Nikki agreed, revealing she also hasn’t slept that much since welcoming Matteo, who she shares with fiance DWTS pro Artem Chigvintsev, in July.

“Aren’t you ever like, ‘How am I doing this?’” she joked.

Brie Bella also chimed in on her experience with her second child, Buddy.

“You get this FOMO of the old you — who you were before pregnancy, who you were before your child came into your life,” she said, but “you’re too embarrassed to say it out loud, ’cause then everyone’s gonna be like, ‘Oh, do you hate your baby?’ And you’re like, ‘No, I just [miss] my old life.’ ”

She goes on, “I think I was trying to keep up with my sister to not lose that part of me when I should’ve just let go and really enjoyed motherhood more with Birdie like I’m doing now with Buddy, instead of trying to just not let go of who I was before Bird came into my life.”

Nikki also touched on her own depression and anxiety struggles, saying that there are “days where I struggle…but I feel like I’m out of the dark hole. I was like on a cliff, about to be pushed over to go into a super place, but now I’m in a place that’s so much better.”

Just recently, Katherine was seen standing up for her husband, Chris Pratt, after he was labeled this by the internet.

Meanwhile, Nikki admitted that as soon as Dancing With the Stars is over, she and Artem are going here…

Nikki Bella & Artem Chigvintsev Are Planning On Going to Couples Therapy

Nikki Bella is getting candid about the problems in her relationship.

During a new interview, the 36-year-old Total Bellas star revealed that she and fiance Artem Chigvintsev will be going to couples therapy once he finishes this season of Dancing with the Stars.

“I would be lying to say, ‘Oh, it’s great.’ It has definitely been a struggle for us,” Nikki shared with Us Weekly. “It’s hard. We have so many ups and downs. It’s been so difficult on our relationship because I need so much from him, but he’s, like, torn between his job that requires so much from him and then us at home.”

The 38-year-old dancing pro returned to work shortly after Nikki gave birth to the couple’s son Matteo back in July.

A few weeks ago, Nikki said that she “hated” Artem for going back to work while she raised their newborn son alone while also battling postpartum depression.

During a new interview, the 36-year-old reality star revealed that she and 43-year-old actor former WWE wrestler are on good terms these days.

“John and I will be tied forever. I get that, like, we had a public relationship on a reality show for six years,” Nikki shared with Us Weekly. “All I’ve ever wanted was for him to be happy. So, it makes me happy when I see that and, like, him kicking butt in the movie world and all that stuff. I love that!”

After being together for six years, Nikki and John split up in 2018. She got engaged to DWTS pro Artem Chigvintsev in January of this year, and the couple welcomed their first son, Matteo, back in July.

Nikki Bella Explains Why She Received Backlash for Supporting Book About The Rock

Nikki Bella is explaining why she’s facing backlash for supporting a new book about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The book, “The Rock: Through the Lens: His Life, His Movies, His World” is by Nikki‘s pal Hiram Garcia and she was supporting him when she posted about it.

“We know as authors … how much work you put into making your first book; to any book you have,” Nikki said on her podcast. “And the minute you get your first book published and it hit shelves, how proud you are. You’re just so excited. It’s a huge accomplishment. So when I got his in the mail, I just remember that feeling when we dropped Incomparable.”

“Then I looked at social media and all of a sudden I was like, ‘What the f–k?’ I’m like, how did this turn into a political debate?” Nikki continued, adding that there were comments on the post like, “BOYCOTT ALL BELLA PRODUCTS!!!!” and “Oh noo! TRUMP 2020.”

“I’m not even thinking — of course, the book is about The Rock [or] photography about The Rock — [and] he just endorsed Joe Biden,” she said. “First of all, that never crossed my mind. Not once. It sucks that you can support someone — support a friend and their amazing accomplishment — and how it turns into negativity and you get this backlash and it turns into something so political.”

The Rock did publicly endorse a candidate in the Presidential Election for the first time ever and that candidate is Joe Biden.

Nikki Bella Talks Postpartum Depression, Says She 'Hated' Fiance Artem Chigvintsev

Nikki Bella is getting real about her postpartum depression.

During a new episode of her The Bellas Podcast, the 36-year-old reality star admitted she’s been feeling “super depressed” while raising two-month-old son Matteo, as fiance Artem Chigvintsev films Dancing with the Stars.

“I’ve always prided myself that I can fight a lot of things mentally,” Nikki shared. “I’m very strong in that way. Postpartum has knocked me on my ass. This is something that is way different.”

Nikki went on to reveal that she had a “massive” breakdown when she “refused to ask for help” while taking care of her newborn son while also filming the new season of Total Bellas.

“I think [my twin sister], Brie [Bella], was the first person who’s asked me in weeks: ‘How are you doing?’” Nikki said. “I was about to say, ‘Fine,’ and my lips started shaking and I burst into alligator tears. Like, I broke down. Because that was the first time someone asked me in a while how I was doing, and I wasn’t doing OK.”.

After talking with her doctor, Nikki realized that she was starting to “fall into a postpartum depression.”

“I didn’t realize at week seven, you kind of come out of your baby blues and … go two different paths,” Nikki explained. “You go the path of being healthy or you go down the path of being depressed, and that depression path can be a really dark, deep hole. I was starting to feel invisible…It just started to build up. Being alone with Matteo and just feeling lonely and not loved and invisible.”

Nikki said that when Artem comes home from DWTS, he spends time with Matteo, making her feel more alone, until she told him how she felt.

“He’s like ‘At times, I felt like you were starting to hate me,’” Nikki recalled. “He’s like, ‘You could be mean.’ And I’m not gonna lie, I did have moments of being mean. I did have moments when I looked at him and I hated him. It’s true. There were times I’d look at him and I’m like, ‘I think I hate you.’”

Luckily now, the two are communicating more as they raise their son together.
