– WWE Superstar Nikki Bella recently spoke with ESPN about a wide variety of topics, check out the highlights below:

On working without Brie:

“In the beginning I kind of felt like lonely, and I kind of embraced it. Hey, now actually I can prove the people that I’m an individual, I just don’t have to be a Bella Twin to make a name for myself here. I can be Nikki Bella, Fearless Nikki, and I’ve really enjoyed that. But there are moments like the Royal Rumble or different moments that I wish I could share with Brie, and I do miss seeing her out there. Like when I do tag matches [I think], ‘Oh I miss my sister Brie.’ So it has its ups and downs.”

On her Latina heritage:

“I’m so proud to be a Latina,” Bella said. “Growing up and being Latina and growing up with my father and getting to do a lot of the Hispanic traditions, I loved it.

“It was funny, because when I shot the cover for Latina Magazine, I spoke about that [moment in my life] when the magazine came out,” Bella said. “I was in sixth grade, and it was something very important to me because as a Latin woman growing up, a Latin girl, I related to them and there were people that I was growing around that I wasn’t relating to.”

On becoming an Aunt:

“I can’t wait. My sister has this amazing glow. I feel like this is my first child; she’s my identical twin too, so I’m very, very excited.”

On Jennifer Lopez being her teenage idol:

“My idol was Jennifer Lopez. I was maturing in a way that all my friends weren’t. How is it that I’m 10 and I look 15 and all my friends don’t? I’m so proud to be a Latina. Growing up and being Latina and growing up with my father and getting to do a lot of the Hispanic traditions, I loved it.”
