Ahead of her son’s arrival, Brie said she wasn’t putting any pressure on herself.
The former wrestler has said that whilst she’s desperate to ‘have a vaginal birth’ after welcoming three-year-old daughter Birdie via C-section, she’s trying not to get her hopes up just in case she’s ‘let down’.
Brie – who has Birdie and newborn son with husband Daniel Bryan – said: ‘Birdie came in through an emergency C-section, so I was really disappointed.
‘I definitely got over it because I looked at the bigger picture: my baby is alive and healthy. And I can’t ask for more than that.

‘But I’m trying not to put pressure on this pregnancy because this is my last shot. You know, I’m only having two kids, and I really do want to have a vaginal birth.
‘I wanna, like, push the baby out and then hold it. I don’t wanna be cut open. Which is fine if I am, but I’m not trying to have high hopes because I don’t want to be let down.’
Brie’s twin sister Nikki – who is also expecting her first child with fiancé Artem Chigvintsev – echoed her concerns about surgery, but said she was ‘open to changes and possibilities’.
She responded: ‘Goodness, from where we’re at right now – you and I going into labor, not knowing the birth plan that’s gonna be handed to us, dealing with COVID-19, an election year, so many things – I think we all need to be open to changes and possibilities. We all need to let go of expectations because we don’t know what tomorrow’s gonna bring.’
Brie made an appointment for a C-section on August 1 with the hope that she would go into labor and deliver her baby naturally before then.
