May 11 (UPI) -- WWE's Brie Bella and her husband Daniel Bryan have welcomed their first child together, a baby girl named Birdie.

According to People magazine, Bella and Bryan, real name Bryan Danielson, welcomed Birdie Joe Danielson on Tuesday. She weighed in at 8 lbs., 10 oz., while measuring 21 inches long.

"There is no better feeling in the world than meeting your daughter. I can't even express the overwhelming joy and love that Bryan and I are feeling," Bella said in a statement to E! News. "Now we know what parents mean about the love you feel when you first meet your child. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers on the safety of Birdie coming into this world."

Bella announced that she was expecting a baby girl in October. The married couple, who met while wrestling for WWE, have both retired from in-ring action, however Bella is open to competing inside the squared-circle once again.

"I think when I have my first child...whenever that is, I would love to make a comeback to that ring," she said before announcing her pregnancy. "I think it would be awesome to actually be the real momma Bella."

Bryan is now the on-screen general manager of WWE's Smackdown Live but has been absent from the show as Birdie's due date neared. The pair are also prominent stars on the E! Network's Total Divas and its accompanying spinoff Total Bellas alongside Brie's sister Nikki and WWE Superstar John Cena.

In March, Bella explained the meaning behind the name Birdie Joe noting, "Joe, her middle name is after my grandfather--his name was Joseph, and he meant the world to me."

"Birdie is because my husband and his whole family are B's," she continued "And he married me, a B too, so his one request was that our kids have B names. I didn't realize how hard it was to find girl B names, but we both came across Birdie and knew that was it!"
