Brie Bella Is “Blessed” to Celebrate First Mother's Day by Bringing Birdie Joe Home From the Hospital

Home sweet home!

Brie Bella‘s first Mother’s Day was extra special because she was finally able to bring baby girl Birdie Joe Danielson home from the hospital!

“It’s been quite a journey, but the hospital experience actually was amazing,” Brie told her Bella Army in a YouTube video update from her house in Phoenix. “The nurses taught us so much. They were so helpful and it was great. But nothing feels better than being home.”

E! News confirmed the Total Divas star and husband Daniel Bryan (real name Bryan Danielson) welcomed their first child just before midnight on May 9. Birdie weighed in at 8 pounds, 10 ounces and measured 21 inches long.

“I came home to these pretty flowers. Bryan picked me these, how beautiful, for Mother’s Day,” she continued. “I just want to say happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there. I don’t think people know exactly what women go through in labor and bringing these beautiful babies into the world and how much they just capture your hearts.”

Brie also added, “Wow, Mother’s day is actually a really special day, so happy Mother’s Day to you all and I’m so blessed that I actually get to be a part of this holiday and that I can join, officially, the moms club. I have to say it’s the best darn club you can be a part of.”

Brie also echoed that sentiment in a heartfelt Instagram post featuring Birdie just days after her daughter’s birth.

“After experiencing 21 hours of labor, I give all the mamas out there a Hip Hip Horray!! The world couldn’t go round without moms,” she wrote. “Make sure to tell your mom today how much you love her because the moment she had you she gave you her heart. ❤ so honored I get to celebrate this holiday as a mom, it’s been a dream of mine. Love you Birdie!!”

Now that Birdie is officially home, Brie is excited to finally introduce her to two more family members—their Frenchie fur babies, Josie and Winston!

“Birdie’s sleeping but we just got these guys, just came home, so once she’s up they get to meet their new little sister,” Brie explained in the video. “I’ve missed them. I’m so excited to see them and I’m so excited to get all in my groove and get everything ready. I will keep you up to date how motherhood goes for me.”

Stay tuned for more mama updates, Bella Army!

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Reveals What Makes Peta Murgatroyd the Best Mom (and It's Adorable)

Maksim Chmerkovskiy can’t help but gush over his soon-to-be-wifey Peta Murgatroyd

The Dancing With the Stars couple is set to walk down the aisle in less than two months, and though things have been stressful, Maksim has never doubted why he fell in love with Peta.

In fact, E! News caught up with the couple at the Steve Irwin Gala dinner at the SLS Hotel over the weekend where Maks gushed over the mother of their son, Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy, ahead of Mother’s Day.

“To me, she’s the best at everything motherly,” he said about Peta. “She’s very sensual, she’s feminine, she’s strict when she needs to be. She’s already making an incredible mom…I thought I’d be tough, and she’d be kind of goofy, and it’s completely not that. So, it goes to show, you don’t know when those motherly instincts will kick in and what you become as a person. She’s amazing!”

Peta also opened up about motherhood and how it’s greatly affected her.

“I never knew it would be right now. I’m 30,” she admitted. “I think it’s the perfect time for everything. I feel—hate to use the word ‘blessed’—but I really do. I feel so grateful for having my little family right now. Life is so good. Life is amazing. I couldn’t ask for anything more.”

Aside from raising their baby boy, the couple is also at the end of planning their July wedding.

“I think it’s less than two months maybe,” Peta told us. “I had a stressful morning this morning actually, trying to organize rooming situations for people. It was my first moment of wedding stress. But no, everything’s going to plan!”

However, she’s still waiting on one very important thing: the dress!  

“It’s currently still in Paris. So I’m waiting for it to be shipped back,” she revealed.

The two are fortunate enough to be able to include little Shai in their nuptials, but he won’t be playing ring bearer just yet.

“He can’t walk down the aisle yet,” Peta said, “But he will be carried down the aisle in some way.”

As for any bachelor party plans, we also chatted with Maksim’s brother Val Chmerkovskiy who revealed there isn’t much in the works just yet…and for good reason!

“Peta already called me about that. She wants to know all the plans for the bachelor party,” Val joked. “But I have very few plans. Our entire life has been one big bachelor party, so it’s nice to celebrate the wedding and celebrate family and each other and two incredible people coming together.”
