WWE star Becky Lynch pregnant with first child, says Seth Rollins was the guy she wanted to 'have kids with'
Becky Lynch had a surprise announcement on Monday. The WWE star revealed she was pregnant and relinquished her title to Asuka as the new champion. The Irish pro wrestler is engaged to Colby Lopez or better known as Seth Rollins in the wrestling circuit. The duo announced their engagement on August 22, 2019.
Rollins, before signing with the WWE, wrestled for Ring of Honor (ROH) and held the World Championship title once. He held the ROH World Tag Team Championship twice with his fellow fighter, Jimmy Jacobs. Rollins has also had stints at the Full Impact Pro (FIP) and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG). He forayed into WWE in 2010 making his debut at the 2012 Survivor Series alongside Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns as part of a team called 'The Shield'.
The 33-year-old went on to win two WWE Championships two-time Universal Champion, two Intercontinental Championships, one-time United States Champion, and a stunning record six-time WWE/Raw Tag Team Champion. Add to this list of achievements, the 2014 'Money in the Bank' winner, the 2015 'Superstar of the Year' and the 2019 'Men's Royal Rumble Winner'. To his credit, Rollins is the only wrestler to have held all three of WWE's main brand world titles (WWE, Universal and NXT Championships).
Talking about her pregnancy, Lynch in an exclusive with People said, "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?'"
Lynch won the championship title in 2019's Wrestlemania 35 after making an appearance in the first all-women main event on WWE's biggest show of the year. Lynch also manages to pip Charlotte Fair and Ronda Rousey in a triple threat bout. According to Gamespot, while Lynch sat out 'Money in the Bank,' Rollins was featured against Drew McIntryre, the current WWE Champion.
"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," Lynch said. "Seth is one of the smartest people I know," the star, who is originally from Ireland, says of her fiance. "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," she continues.
For those wondering how Asuka got the title, Lynch explained she spoke to WWE management about upping the stakes for the Women's 'Money in the bank' scrimmage. The winner didn't get a shot at the championship title, instead won the championship itself. "I'm at a place in my life where things are about to change and I need to do something about it," Lynch said to open the show, according to Gamespot, she later told Asuka, "You go and be a warrior because I'm going to go be a mother."
