Brie Bella says pregnancy has ''kicked her butt''.

The 'Total Divas' star - who is expecting her first child with her husband Daniel Bryan - has likened the experience of pregnancy to ''going through WrestleMania every day''.

She said: ''Pregnancy has kicked my butt I will admit. I was like, 'Whoa, I feel like I'm going through WrestleMania every day!' The nice thing is that right now I can take naps and not feel guilty.

''And I've had crazy carb cravings and I feel like it's because I minus carbs so much. So now all I want to eat is bagels and fruit. I'm like, 'Oh great.' Vegetables make me want to gag and I'm a vegetarian so it's really hard.''

And the 32-year-old wrestler also admits ''weird'' things have happened to her body since she fell pregnant - like gaining a heightened sense of smell.

She told E! News: ''It's weird. Pregnancy just makes your nose out here. I smell everything. My poor husband. The other day I was just like, 'You smell like garlic.' He's like, 'I didn't have garlic.' Other than that I love being pregnant.''

Meanwhile, Brie previously admitted she got ''really emotional'' when she found out she was expecting a baby girl.

She said: ''When I found out it was a girl I actually got really emotional. I have such an amazing relationship with my mom and I think, wow, I'm going to have that with my daughter. Also as a woman I now have my own blood to follow my legacy. It's such a special feeling! My mini me! ... It has always been a dream of mine to become a mother. Now that it is finally real, it fills me up with so much happiness. I can't wait to see my husband be a father to our child. I am so excited for this new chapter in our lives.''

Whilst Daniel added: ''I'm so excited we're having a little girl. I'm sure that, just like her mother, she's going to steal my heart.''
