“You guys, it’s so ridiculous. Brie and I both did not do IVF,” Nikki told listeners during the Wednesday, February 19 episode. The reality TV star went on to explain that IVF is a “major” procedure that neither she nor her sister used to conceive.
“We did not plan on being pregnant together,” she explained. “I’m still in shock even though I’m really happy. This is just what God wanted. This is the way the universe worked. God has a plan for it and I’m going on the ride with it, but there was just no planning here.”
Nikki is expecting her first child with her fiancé, Dancing With the Stars pro Artem Chigvintsev. The pregnancy is the second for Brie, who shares 2-year-old daughter Birdie with her husband, WWE fighter Daniel Bryan.
