WWE’s Bella twins used to pay the bills at Hooters – now they're worth $12m and own matching LA mansions & lingerie line

THEY'VE done everything together their whole lives, from WWE to reality TV – so it's no surprise the Bella twins have now even welcomed babies just one DAY apart.

Nikki and Bella, 36, confirmed they'd both given birth earlier this month, after insisting that it was a "coincidence" they'd fallen pregnant at the same time.


And their kids are set to grow up in serious luxury thanks to the twins' impressive empire, with the pair now thought to be worth around $12 million (£9.1M) collectively.

From their hugely successful WWE careers, to their TV shows and more recently their YouTube videos, podcasts and Instagram accounts gaining millions of followers, they've become superstars in the world of wrestling.

But they've had to work to get to the top, having started out on a family farm before waitressing and modelling to make ends meet – all before finally getting their big break.

Now they're regularly seen enjoying luxury holidays abroad, showing off designer gear on the red carpet and relaxing in their huge mansions with their famous partners – WWE's Daniel Bryan and Strictly Come Dancing pro Artem Chigvintsev.

Pregnancy has been an incredible journey so far, even through some of the toughest times we have faced in this world so far and through some of the most beautiful life changing times as well. I have embraced the changes of the human body, even though that can be tough at times. I have embraced the feeling of being uncomfortable knowing I am growing a life that will be one of my own. I have already felt the lioness in me come out even more knowing that I am ready to protect, teach, love and guide. And to go through all of this with my twin sister? Goodness I would say I am one lucky woman that God knew my timing of becoming a mom was divine. Can’t wait to meet you little boy in 4 weeks. ❤️🦋✨

Here, we take a look inside their glamorous lives…

From Hooters to showbiz royalty

While the Bella twins may be best known for their wrestling skills now, the pair actually grew up as soccer-mad farm girls.

They eventually moved to LA after college and began waitressing, modelling, and taking small acting gigs – even working at Hooters.

HOOTERS!!!! Lol 😂 just came across these pics and I just had to post them. my days as a Hooters waitress, I was 19!! My sister @thenikkibella and good friend @julia1nyc will probably kill me ha!!! Top left is Bucky Lasek, pro skater, loved his skateboarding. #daysofmylife #growingup

"I always knew that my bills get paid first and dreams come next," Nikki, whose real name is Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace, told Forbes.

It was Brie, real name Brianna Monique Danielson, who first thought of wrestling as an option, however, finally glimpsing a way for them to combine their love of sports with entertainment.


The twins made their first national TV appearance on the Fox reality show Meet My Folks, before going on to be hired as the World Cup Twins for Budweiser.

They have since gone on to become major stars in TV show Total Divas and are both former Divas Champions.

Since announcing their retirements, with Nikki the second to go last year, the pair have starred in their reality TV show Total Bellas and have also launched a wine label.


Impressive family mansions next door to each other

With an impressive entertainment career comes some impressive homes, and both Bella twins live a life of luxury in LA – even living next door to each other.


Nikki and Artem's home has a newly-renovated kitchen, which he often uses to workout too, along with an incredible walk-in closet which Nikki is often seen posing in.

The giant wardrobe space has rails upon rails, with mannequin heads along the top to display her hat collection.

The pair have opted for a classic look with chandeliers, huge high ceilings and a grand fireplace.

In keeping with a more modern look, they've chosen a lot of creams and greys in the kitchen too.

Brie regularly gives fans a glimpse inside her home on Instagram too, revealing magnificent open-plan rooms and cream furniture.

With wooden flooring throughout, the modern home is given a warmer feel, along with a fireplace like Nikki.

Brie has statement furniture and the odd patterned rug to give her home an individual and unique feel.

But it's the couple's garden that is really impressive, with huge flower beds overgrown with fruit and vegetable plants for the family to work on together.

Designer wardrobes & lingerie lines

While Nikki and Brie began their careers as WWE Divas, wearing tiny outfits for their fights in the ring, they've also since become fashion icons.

While they regularly share snaps showing off their incredible figures in bikinis, they're also big fans of getting glammed up in colourful dresses for red carpet appearances.


throwback to my abs, long hair and @mybirdiebee lingerie (those are actually coming back soon…. abs and hair… well hopefully down the road lol) ps: I LOVE my baby bump, especially what’s inside. 🥰

A post shared byNikki Bella (@thenikkibella) on

The pair have become successful Instagram influencers in recent years, often tagging fashion brands and make-up artists in their posts too.

And they've even set up their own sustainable lifestyle brand Birdiebee, with its own lingerie line, which they're often seen modelling on social media too.

Both twins are regularly seen taking part in joint photoshoots, and have modelled some stunning designer gear in the past too.

Brie was seen in some stunning dresses throughout her pregnancy in particular, and opted for a floor-length lace white dress by For Love & Lemons to show off her bump just weeks ago.

Luxury holidays & private jets

While both twins love nothing more than a cosy time at home with their families, they've also jetted off on some amazing holidays around the world with their other halves too.

And the pair appear to travel in luxury when they get away with their partners, as Nikki has previously shared a photo of them strolling out to a private jet together.

However, while they're regular jet-setters, they also love a break in the US – and appear to make near-annual trips to Lake Tahoe together too.

It's a good job their partners get on well!
