Nikki Bella says she's 18 pounds away from her pre-baby weight.
She gave birth to her first child at the end of July.
She says she plans to lose the weight in the “healthiest way possible.”
Nikki Bella welcomed her first child, son Matteo Artemovich, with her fiancé, Dancing with the Stars pro Artem Chigvintsev, at the end of July, and she’s sharing an update with fans about what her body is like after having her baby.
“This was really hard to do, but I felt like it was the right thing to do,” she said on her Instagram Stories, while wearing a black bathing suit. “I feel like sometimes on social media, and people sometimes in the spotlight, we just truly don’t showcase how hard postpartum can be and the journey of getting your body back.”
Nikki said that she’s 18 pounds away from what she weighed before she had Matteo, and was pretty honest about her eating habits. “I indulged in pizza quite a bit, especially towards the end, and baked goods,” she said. “I have to take full accountability, so I am now in a journey to lose 18 pounds.”
But, Nikki said, she wants to do it “in the most healthiest way possible because I’m breastfeeding obviously, and giving my son the most amazing nutrition is No. 1, so there’s going to be no crash-diets, no starving myself.”
Nikki made it clear that having her baby was “worth all the curves, all the changes” and sweetly called baby Matteo, the “most amazing little boy ever.”

(Nikki also hilariously shared a pic of herself eating an ice cream bar after saying all that.)
Nikki's also been posting videos of her post-baby workout routines to TikTok, and let's just say, she's crushing it.
Nikki followed all that up with the sweetest snapshot of Matteo. Go ahead—just try to deal with all that cuteness:
