Twin sisters Nikki and Brie Bella welcomed their new bundles of joy just 22 hours apart, with Nikki giving birth to son Matteo Artemovich on July 31, and Brie welcoming son Buddy Dessert on Aug. 1.

Buddy is the second child for Brie and her husband, wrestler Daniel Bryan, with whom she also shares 3-year-old daughter Birdie.

"For his middle name, I really wanted to incorporate my family," Brie told PEOPLE. "Birdie's middle name is Joe after my grandfather, who just meant the world to me. So I wanted Buddy to have something of my grandmother. Her last name, her maiden name, is Dessert. When you look at it, people are going to say Dessert, because it's French. But it's pronounced 'desert.' "

Paltrow told Oprah, "When we were first pregnant, her daddy [Chris Martin] said, 'If it's a girl I think her name should be Apple.' It sounded so sweet, and it conjured such a lovely picture for me, you know? Apples are so sweet and they're wholesome, and it's biblical. I just thought it sounded so lovely."

Well, it's clear that she's the Apple of her mom's eye.
