The Strictly Come Dancing alum became a father on July 31 when Bella, 36, gave birth to their baby boy. “Please welcome our precious baby boy Chigvintsev,” the So You Think You Can Dance alum captioned his newborn’s Instagram reveal. “Proud of my love @nikkibella.”

The former professional wrestler commented on the social media upload: “Couldn’t have done it without you holding my leg and motivating me. Honestly though couldn’t have done any of it or this without you. Love you my Click and love our little boy. Love you both beyond words.”

The Total Bellas star gave birth 24 hours before her twin sister, Brie Bella, welcomed her second child, a baby boy.

“How about that tag team!” Nikki wrote via Twitter on Monday, August 3. “I can’t believe Brie & I had boys less than 24 hours apart! Honestly only us! Lol. And that I beat her. As you can imagine everyone said it was my baby & mines competitive side that kicked in! I can’t wait for our Bellas Boys to grow up together!”
