Nikki Bella shares pictures alongside her mother
“Happy Mother’s Day to the OG of mama’s, my true ride or die, one of the funniest and smartest women I know, and always down to go to high tea or a champagne and cavier spot with me even though should would have rather been at the pub watching the Eagles or some sports game! She legit was the greatest soccer mom! Love you Mom, couldn’t and don’t want to ever imagine life without you! I did something right with God giving you as my mama as well as giving me Nana! My mom was a baby raising babies and my Nana was like a mom to us too growing up, always by all of our sides, making sure we all knew and saw the right side of life. None of us would be the women we are today without our Nana! I just can’t thank God enough for giving me my mom and my Nana! Always winning with these two! Love you both so much!”
According to a report by Distractify, Nikki and Brie Bella’s mother Kathy Laurinaitis underwent major surgery in June 2020. The doctors had found a blueberry sized tumour on her brain stem. The operation was successful and she was discharged from the hospital too.Kathy was diagnosed with Bell’s palsy in February 2020. It is a condition that refers to weakness or paralysis which affects one side of the face.
The report added that it tends to develop in under two days and in most cases improves after around nine months. However, Kathy’s symptoms turned worse over time. One morning in June last year, she woke up feeling extremely dizzy with her face paralyzed. She was rushed to the hospital.
In an episode of The Bellas Podcast titled Bellas Baby Shower!, Brie talked about the incident. The sisters shared that doctors were hesitant to perform the procedure because of the pandemic implications. However, they went ahead but the operation went on much longer than expected. Fortunately, the procedure and operation turned out to be successful.
