Nikki and Brie Bella are overwhelmed with joy and ready to introduce their boys to the world. Meet Matteo and Buddy!
In this week's issue of PEOPLE, the Total Bellas stars, both 36, open up about giving birth within 22 hours of each other and how in love they already are with their sons (despite the lack of sleep!).
"I've been up since 3 a.m., but this is what I've wanted my whole life," says Nikki, who welcomed her first child, son Matteo Artemovich, with her fiancé, Dancing with the Stars pro Artem Chigvintsev , 38, on July 31. "The fact that he's here — I'm just so in love and happy."
"That's what happens when you're on an infant schedule," adds Brie, who gave birth to son Buddy Dessert on Aug. 1. (She and her husband, wrestler Daniel Bryan, 39, also have a 3-year-old daughter, Birdie.) "But like Nikki said, the love is just so overpowering that even though you're so tired, that bliss just takes over."

After being placed into hospital rooms right next to each other (another unplanned coincidence!), the sisters were finally able to meet each other's babies for the first time.
"What's crazy about Buddy and Mateo is, they both have the same scream-cry," says Nikki. "It's the cutest high-pitch noise and they're identical. Even their coos are identical and they're so cute. Now, Mateo, he will grunt and like punch my boobs when he's breastfeeding. Artem and I will sit and laugh because it's perfect little punches he'll do. He grunts at me, so I feel like I have a little boxer on my hands."
"Buddy loves kicking," Brie says of her son. "I actually was really nervous, because everyone's like, 'If you have a good baby, you're going to have a really bad one.' I was like, 'Well, Birdie was so good. So here comes my wild one.' He's calmer than what Birdie was."
"[Both babies] are calm and patient," Brie adds. "We're the wild ones and very feisty. Our little boys don't have our personalities yet. Birdie does. Birdie is our mini."
