People: Nikki Bella Gets in Trouble ‘All the Time’ for Spoiling Brie Bella’s Daughter: ‘Birdie Owns Me’

When it comes to 16-month-old Birdie Joe, mom Brie Bella can be the bad cop while her sister Nikki Bella is always the good cop.

“She doesn’t know what no means,” Brie, 34, told PEOPLE Saturday at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas while speaking of how Nikki spoils her daughter. “Like when she’s throwing a little tantrum or something.”

“Nicole has these big open arms and wants to smother her,” she explained. “I’m like, ‘No, you gotta ignore her. Don’t look at her.’ “

Aunt Nikki, Brie’s twin, lets the tot indulge in TV more than Mom does, too. “We like her to watch only one episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse but when she’s with Nicole, she might get four episodes in,” Brie said.

ET: Nikki Bella Confirms She’s Single

Nikki Bella is not quite ready to date following her split from John Cena earlier this year.

ET’s Lauren Zima caught up with Nikki and her twin sister, Brie Bella, at the iHeart Radio Music Festival over the weekend, and she dished all about her relationship status and whether her and John have kept in contact since their split.

“I made a joke about dating, Netflix and black licorice and how it gets boring and it turned into this whole thing where I got quoted saying dating life is boring,” Nikki, 34, said of recent rumors surrounding her dating life. “I was like, ‘No I said Netflix and black licorice and [was boring]’… it’s not what people expect, but I’ve got to admit I am single but I’m not ready for mingling yet.”

“You’ve gotta find yourself first,” Brie emphasized. “You do,” Nikki concurred.

The Total Bellas star noted that she and John, 41, have not spoken recently. “He’s doing him and I’m doing me,” she shared, adding that she’s taking this time to work on herself.

“I slowly feel like I’m doing that,” Nikki said. “I think it’s happiness, and just fully being happy and that’s what I want.”

Though Nikki called the attempts to find herself “scary,” she’s enjoying getting out of her comfort zone.

“I just feel like I’m at that age where I’m discovering who I really am and what I want out of life and just, like, independence,” she said. “Is it scary and you do have these moments of like, ‘What am I doing?’ — and fear. I just kind of am liking the challenge.”

When ET spoke to Nikki earlier this month, she opened up even more about what she’s focusing on since her split.

“I’m really enjoying being an entrepreneur [and] I’m very excited for my comeback at WWE,” Nikki said of her return to wrestling, which is currently being shown on season eight of Total Divas. “I just have this goal in my head of what I want to conquer as an independent woman and I’m going to get there.”

She continued, “You’re better in a relationship when you fully have that self-love and love yourself and know who you are because then you’re just so confident in that relationship.”

Nikki and John got engaged in April 2017, before calling it quits a year later. The pair eventually reconciled and started planning their wedding again, but, as was documented in last season’s Total Bellas, that engagement also ended.

“It’s been, as we all know, a hard few months,” Bella said earlier this month. “[But] the fans have been so supportive and the fact that we got picked up for a new season and people want to continue to watch Brie and I’s journey, it just means so much to us.”

As for the upcoming season of Total Bellas, which is currently filming, Nikki promises lots of happy moments.

“A lot of ups this season, which is great,” Nikki said over the weekend. “I think Brie and I both are just on this very empowering season… I’m back where my home is and my family and those roots.”

Meanwhile, Total Divas airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on E!

Brie Bella addresses Liv Morgan’s injury during Six-Woman Tag Team Match

After incapacitating Liv Morgan with a kick to the face during Raw’s Six-Woman Tag Team Match pitting The Bella Twins & Natalya against The Riott Squad, Brie Bella took to Twitter to express remorse that she took her foe out of the match the way she did, adding that her thoughts are with Liv despite being at odds in recent weeks.

“Every match on #Raw is an opportunity for us to entertain our fans,” Brie wrote. “Our intentions as @WWE Superstars is to win the match, never injure our opponents. Thinking about @YaOnlyLivvOnce tonight.”

The Bella Twins are set to team with Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey against The Riott Squad at WWE Super Show-Down on Saturday, Oct. 6, in Melbourne, Australia.

Raw Recap, Photos & Video

Ruby Riott had been scheduled to battle Brie Bella on Raw tonight, but Ruby Riott & Co. are never content to have just one enemy at a time: The match was reconfigured into a Six-Woman Tag that roped in Nikki Bella (who’ll team with Brie and Ronda Rousey against the Squad at WWE Super Show-Down) and Natalya (who got bushwhacked by Ruby & Co. when she attempted to answer Rousey’s Open Challenge last week), and The Riott Squad survived the trio of veterans to walk away with a big-time win.


And “survive” is a very appropriate term: Brie came out swinging so hard that Liv Morgan had to exit the match after being incapacitated by a “Yes!” Kick to the face, handing the Squad a 3-on-2 disadvantage. Ruby and Sarah Logan hung tough, however, and they took advantage of Natalya’s overzealousness to secure the victory: The Queen of Harts locked Logan in the Sharpshooter, but she didn’t notice a tag to Ruby seconds earlier, which left her vulnerable to a quick-strike Riott Kick that put the match away.
