On the Total Bellas episode ‘Who’s the Boss?’, the Bella Twins Nikki and Brie get pedicures. While soaking their feet in two tubs of warm water sprinkled with red rose petals, Nikki says she’d like to bring Brie’s husband Daniel Bryan here once but within the same breathe says he would probably judge the experience as high maintenance. Nikki says, “He’s so negative about all that stuff because he’s never tried it.”
Brie is quick to correct her sister’s assessment of her husband: “It’s not negative. He gets severe anxiety.” Brie then reveals to her sister (and the pedicurist) that her husband had been “battling depression since he was 25.” Daniel is currently 35. Brie says over the last two years the depression “comes, it hits hard, but it only lasts for two days.” Why is Brie revealing Daniel’s condition now? She says now that they’re living with Jon and Nicole, “We can’t hide it anymore.” Total Bellas airs Wednesdays at 8pm on E!
