Daddy’s going back to work!
One month after Total Divas star Brie Bella gave birth to her first child — a baby girl named Birdie Joe — her husband Daniel Bryan (real name Bryan Danielson) returned to TV as the General Manager of Smackdown Live. But even though it was hard for him to leave his wife and newborn daughter behind, he gushed over how Brie is stepping up to the challenge of taking care of their daughter by herself while he’s on the road.
"I consider it a supermom role," he told E! News. "She's not really concerned about it too much. I think the biggest concern is not just the baby, but our two needy little Frenchie dogs, so taking care of them as well. But I think she's going to be able to handle it."
Of course, as soon as her hubby left town, Brie was faced with her first “disaster” — the air conditioner in their home broke on a 118-degree day in Arizona. But the quick-thinking mama decided to just pack up her baby girl and head over to her mom’s house — where Birdie got to watch her daddy on TV for the first time ever!
Brie documented the moment in a video clip on her YouTube channel. Her adorable baby girl sat in her lap with her eyes glued to the TV screen during his entrance — and she even clapped along, with Brie’s help, of course.
The former WWE Divas champ retired from the ring after Wrestlemania 32 last April in order to focus on starting her family with Bryan. But since giving birth to her daughter, she’s been training to get back to her pre-baby body and hinted a possible return to her wrestling career — but her hubby refused to spill the beans about when that might happen!
"I think she's keeping most of her comeback plans to the ring her own secret," Bryan said. "She tells me obviously, but you'll have to get it from her."
