In a new trailer for Total Bellas’ fifth season, Bella, 36, opens up about her desire to not have more children with her 38-year-old spouse after welcoming their now-2-year-old daughter, Birdie, in May 2017. “I hate to say this, but I don’t want another child,” the retired WWE star confesses in the clip released on Wednesday, February 5.

The couple’s interaction is followed by a conversation Brie has with her twin sister, Nikki Bella, about her nearly six-year marriage.

“I know I could be happier. I know I could have a better marriage,” Brie admits to Nikki, who responds, “You think you and Bryan are meant to be? Don’t stay because you have children.”

I am already SO IN LOVE!! My baby and I have already fought the flu together and had [a] victory! So I know we can take on anything in this world we want to… together. ❤️ I love my little warrior baby! My baby is SO strong it’s crazy!”

Nikki also praised the Dancing With the Stars vet, adding: “@theartemc your pure joy, bliss, love and happiness has meant everything to me! To already watch you step up to be the best Dad for this little one makes my heart smile so big! I know we aren’t husband and wife yet but I love our commitment to this child already.”
