“It actually started as a storyline and then we really hit it off,” Daniel told PW Mania in 2013.

He said it was shortly before their storyline scripted by WWE was going to end, they started dating for real. 

You see, sometimes, we need an instigator. Maybe all you need is that one person to pair you with someone.

What Was The StoryLine?

In the summer of 2010, Daniel Bryan started a storyline with the Bella Twins. The twins were supposed to fight for his affection and attention but at the end of it, both of them ended up getting dumped. That was just the storyline because, in real life, Brie and Daniel started dating just before their Drama ended.

The Proposal.

After dating for nearly 3 years, Daniel Bryan went down on one knee to propose to his beloved when they went on a hike together in Big Sur. While describing the moment to E! Online, she said she had never seen him that nervous and she has been with him when he’s about to go out for really big things.


“I have never in my life seen him so nervous. I’ve been by him when he’s gone out for WrestleMania and some really big things,” Brie Bella revealed. “He got really, really nervous and he started talking about how long we’ve been together. He got down on one knee and compared our love. He said he’ll love me forever like the ocean goes on.”

Daniel surprised Brie with the ring she always wanted, a vintage European 1.5 carat diamond that was also an eco-friendly, conflict-free diamond. Daniel also flew Brie and her entire family out for an engagement dinner. Brie said that it was the nicest thing anyone has done for her. 

When Did They Tie The Knot?

The couple got married on the 14th of April, 2014. The wedding took place five days after the greatest day of Daniel Bryan’s career at Wrestlemania XXX, his fight with Randy Orton. They got married in Brie’s home state of Arizona at L’Auberge Resort and Spa in Sedona. The couple had a ‘country rustic’ theme.

According to E! the bride wore a Katie May wedding dress and Yves Saint Laurent heels that was given to her by her sister.

Close friends and colleagues like Jimmy Uso, John Cena, Tyson Kidd, Cesaro were also present and of course, her twin sister, Nikki Bella who was her maid of honour. They also had a special guest, their dog Josie.

Brie while speaking to Health said that both of them were ready and committed to starting the journey and making things work. She said she is quick to anger and Daniel was battling depression, regardless, they were going to make it work. They were intentional about it.

Brie and Daniel As Partners In The Wrestling Ring

On several occasions, the two have been paired as tag team partners with the other WWE couple, The Miz and his wife Maryse and they have delivered beautifully. Their relationship made them stronger as a team.

Brie Gives Birth To Baby Birdie.

In 2017, Brie had her first child, a baby girl, Birdie Joe Danielson. They welcomed their joy on the 9th of May, 2017 at 11:58 pm. It was past Brie’s original due date which was April 30th. Brie, 33, tells E! News in a statement that there is no better feeling in the world than meeting her daughter and being a mother.

“There is no better feeling in the world than meeting your daughter. I can’t even express the overwhelming joy and love that Bryan and I are feeling. Now we know what parents mean about the love you feel when you first meet your child. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers on the safety of Birdie coming into this world.”

Brie and Daniel Struggle With Pregnancy For Second Child

Brie and her husband planned to give their daughter Birdie another sibling. Birdie was 2 years old then. They struggled to have a child for 8 months. All was to no attempt. 

Brie confirmed that there were times when her period came really late and she was very convinced that she was pregnant only to find out that it was a delay.

“I was stressed, and it wasn’t happening. There were a couple times that I was so late and was sure I was pregnant. Then I would get my period and bleed really badly. I think the universe was telling me something, like, it’s not a great time to have another baby”


Brie also opened up about her PCOS condition, polycystic ovary syndrome, which kills fertility. She had said that she was so devastated when she found out and prayed that she still had fertile eggs.

A Child At Last

Brie and Daniel got exactly what they wanted, a child and it was a boy, Buddy Dessert Danielson. She took to her Instagram page to announce his arrival in good health the following day.

The happy mother said that after they had been trying to have a second child they gave up and just let things be as they should be. Brie and her husband went on a retreat to Sedona, Arizona to work on their relationship and that’s when they created the magic. She said she didn’t know she was pregnant until she was in France for her Twin sister, Nikki’s engagement dinner.

They are now a family of four and now Brie has to worry about travelling with two children because of the state of her and her husband’s jobs.

Even after almost a decade, the two are still standing strong. In April 2021, they celebrated their 7th year wedding anniversary and posted lovely pictures on Instagram.


In a relationship, both parties have to be intentional. They were both intentional about making things work. Daniel noted on time that when his wife was pregnant, he read a lot of ‘How to become a great parent’ book and ‘how good parenting could change a marriage.’ He said he was very conscious about that when they welcomed their first child, Birdie. With the story of these two superstars you will learn that money, love and fame are not enough, you need to be intentional about your actions and you should always try to do better.
