Brie Bella struggled to get pregnant.

The 'Total Divas' star - who is expecting her first child with her husband Daniel Bryan - didn't realise how hard it would be to conceive a child and tried everything she could including using mobile phone apps to assist with having a baby.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: ''I thought it was going to happen the first try. It's crazy how difficult it is to get pregnant. Like it blows my mind. No one ever tells you. I downloaded apps and it turned into this whole process.''

The 32-year-old wrestler said the moment she stopped thinking about it she became pregnant.

She said: ''It is funny because we shot for the cover of Muscle and Fitness and during that period of time I was like, I'm not gonna care, I'm not going to be too hard on myself. And so I had to get into crazy shape for that cover. I was weight lifting, which I never really weight lift, and that's when I got pregnant. And I was like, 'What! They're right!' The minute you don't think about it, it kind of happens.''

The brunette beauty 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.''
