Becky Lynch Reveals More Details About Pregnancy During Exclusive Interview
Becky Lynch shocked the WWE Universe on Monday night when she relinquished her Raw Women’s Championship to Asuka, at the same time announcing she was going to become a mother. The wrestling world sent out their congratulations and the moment was emotional, setting the tone for packed Raw that delivered on a number of fronts.
In an interview with People.com, Lynch discussed her pregnancy in more detail, sharing parts of what she didn’t have time to reveal (or likely wouldn’t have) on Raw.
On the idea of having kids while competing for WWE:
“I’ve always, always wanted kids. I’m just so career-focused that it became one of those things that, when you’re chasing a dream for so long, I always wondered, ‘Am I going to get around to it? Is it going to happen for me?'”
Becky specifically talked about Seth Rollins being the father and how she knew he was the right guy at the right time:
“When we got together, things started to look a lot clearer and I knew he was the person that I wanted to have kids with — that this was going to happen and it was just a matter of when. Seth is one of the smartest people I know. He’s just got an insane work ethic, insane integrity and he is the most generous, kindhearted person. He’s very, very focused on what the right thing to do is and always looking to grow and correct himself and be better so he can be the best person for me, and now, the best father.”
When she talked about the process of learning she was pregnant, she said she took the test a few times. The first time she didn’t get confirmation. She explained:
“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!”
While fans will miss her and she doesn’t know exactly what role she’ll play before the baby comes in December, it’s huge news for she and Seth and wish her nothing but the best.
