Totally Divas Brie Bella welcomed daughter Birdie Joe


Totally Divas star Brie Bella and her fellow wrestler husband Daniel Bryan welcomed their first child together, a daughter.

The couple named her Birdie Joe Danielson on May 8, a couple weeks from her original due date of April 30. The WWE wrestler, whose twin sister Nikki is also on the show and wrestles.

She told E! the source of the baby’s name.

“Joe, her middle name, is after my grandfather—his name was Joseph, and he meant the world to me,” Brie explains in the publication. “Birdie is because my husband and his whole family are ‘B’s. And he married me, a ‘B’ too, so his one request was that our kids have ‘B’ names. I didn’t realize how hard it was to find girl ‘B’ names, but we both came across Birdie and knew that was it!”


In an exclusive chat with E! News on set, the mom-to-be also discussed some of the contenders that were previously in the running.

“We’re between Branch, Birdie, Brayden, Brynn and Bridget,” the 33-year-old wrestler shared. “My husband loves Branch. I was like, ‘Well, eh, you know that can go two ways.’ Someone told me, ‘Just keep going to Starbucks and say your name is Branch and see how you feel when they say it out loud!'”

They wouldn’t be the first with a daughter named Birdie. Cougartown actress Busy Phillips has a daughter with that name as well.

She was featured in Fit Pregnancy magazine recently as well and her spinoff show with her sister Nikki, Totally Bellas, is going to start a second season soon. Both shows air on E!

Trend Alert: 80s Acid & Stone Washed Jeans are BACK!

acid wash and stone washed trend

I was in the mall the other day and realized that acid and stone washed denim was back in style. Whoa! How did I miss this during the last season’s international Fashion Weeks ready-to-wear runway shows?

When I last saw that trend, it was the 80s and I was pretty sure back then that it would never make a come back. Never say never because the style has always been spotted on some of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums in recent weeks such as Hayden Panetierre, Busy Phillips, Kim Kardashian and Christina Milian.

And some of the trendier maternity lines are up on it. They have acid and stone washed offerings for the preginista who wants to stay hip and current during pregnancy.


And for new and veteran moms, many non-maternity brands are selling the trend too.


Would you revisit the 80s and go there?

Busy Phillips welcomes second daughter!

It’s another girl for Cougar Town‘s Busy Phillips and husband, screenwriter Marc Silverstein.
“So this happened…” she tweeted today with a blurred image of herself holding her newborn daughter.
A rep confirmed with US Weekly that the couple welcomed the new edition yesterday, July 2. I think it is so cute, as US pointed out that she announced her pregnancy via twitter with the exact same caption but with a blurry positive pregnancy test photo that time. How’s that for consistency in presentation!?! 
The Dawson’s Creek alum and hubby are parents to 4-year old daughter Birdie. They wed in 2007.
