Brie, one half of tag team duo the Bella Twins and recently-retired former champ Bryan love nature hence their choice of name
WWE superstars Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan are soaring high after announcing their first baby – a girl named Birdie.
Semi-retired star Brie, one half of twin tag-team duo the Bella Twins, gave birth to a healthy girl weighting eight pounds, 10 ounces on Tuesday evening, report E.
Her husband Daniel Bryan, another huge name in the company and former heavyweight champion who retired last year after a series of concussions, was by her side.
In a statement, Bella said: “”There is no better feeling in the world than meeting your daughter. I can’t even express the overwhelming joy and love that Bryan and I are feeling.
“Now we know what parents mean about the love you feel when you first meet your child. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers on the safety of Birdie coming into this world.”
Before the birth, Bryan added: “I’m so excited we’re having a little girl. I’m sure that, just like her mother, she’s going to steal my heart.”

It comes just days after 33-year-old Brie revealed on YouTube she was hospitalised with issues over her then-unborn baby’s breathing patterns, spending the night in a maternity ward.
Birdie was eventually a week overdue, with Brie saying: “Five days late, she is still not here. My defiant little girl has a mind of her own – very strong, which isn’t a bad thing.”
But thankfully she is a healthy child, and with her parents known lovers of nature and wildlife, it explains the name Birdie Joe Danielson – Danielson being the real surname of Daniel Bryan.
Although Brie has a slightly more practical reasoning: “Joe, her middle name, is after my grandfather—his name was Joseph, and he meant the world to me.
“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 realise how hard it was to find girl ‘B’ names, but we both came across Birdie and knew that was it!”
It comes just a few weeks after wrestler John Cena’s emotional proposal to Brie’s sister Nikki during WrestleManie 33.
