Together Through It All
As if giving birth just 22 hours apart wasn’t enough, the Bella twins also had hospital rooms right next to each other.
Brie told PEOPLE, “We’re lucky because [our hospital rooms] were right next to each other and I was just like, ‘My sister and I have been quarantined together and we’re identical twins. Can she come in?’ They said, ‘Okay, in the middle of the night, we’ll bring her, Artem and Matteo.'”
She added, “Because I had a [cesarean] section and couldn’t get out of bed, they came in the middle of the night, around midnight. It was really emotional to see them and to just see her holding a baby.”
