The twins stated the reason for stepping away from the cameras is because of their families. Last year Nikki and Brie celebrated parenthood together as they both had baby boys just days apart.
Both sisters went on to reiterate that they don’t want their young children in front of the cameras.
Here what Brie had to say on the matter;
“We love filming reality. We don’t mind it, but you start seeing your kids and that’s what you have to start to think about…my daughter hates the camera. So does my husband.”
“Birdie doesn’t even let me take pictures…So I’m very respectful of her space, what she wants. I only let her film if she wants to walk into a scene. Both Nicole and I always say, we have to respect our families and at any time where our families feel like it’s time for them to be done, then we have to think about that too. So we feel like we might have a little bit in us, but we also have to really just fill it out with our families.”
Nikki echoed Brie’s sentiments saying that she doesn’t want to raise her 10-month old son, Matteo, in front of the cameras either.
Here’s what Nikki said;
“I can maybe do a few more seasons of reality TV, but I just can’t raise my son in front of the cameras.” “I just don’t want him one day to look at me and be like, ‘You never gave me that choice. You put my life out there and you didn’t let me have the say, choose that,’ and I don’t want that. I want him to have a normal upbringing and when he’s 18 he can choose whatever it is he wants to do, or even younger than that.”
Nikki continued “But I’m very protective of my son,” Nikki continues. “So that’s why I think, for me, it’ll be definitely sooner than later because, even when we were filming stuff in the hospital with our cameras. Even when they’re doing his first bath, I was like, ‘Artem, no, like, we don’t need to get this.“
