In an interview with People Magazine, which was released right after the announcement on Raw, Lynch said that her and fiance Seth Rollins discovered they would be having a baby after a series of pregnancy tests in April:
I took the first one wrong. Then I took a few more tests until I got a digital one that just said the word ‘Pregnant.’ I was with Seth at the time and he just threw his hands up in the air, all excited!
I don’t know what the next chapter is because I only know what it’s like to think for myself when I’m by myself. So I don’t know what it’ll look like and how my priorities shift and what I’m going to want in the future. So, everything’s open.
Lynch, 33, won the Raw women’s title in the main event of WrestleMania 35 at MetLife Stadium in April 2019 and left as show as both Raw & SmackDown women’s champion. She lost the SmackDown title to Charlotte Flair in May 2019.
