Nikki Bella and fiancé Artem Chigvintsev are having a boy!

Although her twin sister Brie Bella ultimately turned down the idea of having a joint baby shower, choosing to keep the sex of her second baby with husband Daniel Bryan a surprise, Nikki , 36, and the dance pro, 37, found out their exciting news on the season finale of Total Bellas.

Throwing a big fiesta-themed bash, a nod to her Mexican heritage, Brie leads a countdown before the smiling couple fires a confetti cannon and pulls open an adorable onesie-shaped piñata, revealing a mass of blue confetti.

Clearly overjoyed by the news, as their friends cheered, Nikki and Artem shared a kiss before he lifted his fiancée into the air.

"I'm so excited that Nicole and Artem are having a boy, I knew it," Brie says to her sister in a confessional. "It's perfect for your personality, and I think you and your boy will have such a good bond."

Moments before the big reveal, Nikki confessed to her friends that while she didn't have a firm opinion, Chigvintsev hoped they were having a daughter.

"He wants a girl, and I'm like, I don't care," she says.

In a confessional, the mom-to-be goes on to share that from the first moment she saw their baby, she immediately had her own hunch.

"The first time I saw the 3D version of my baby I immediately thought a boy because the back was so jacked and strong," she says. "I was like, 'Oh damn, if that's a girl she's going to come out here and destroy people — which would be awesome."
