‘The Man Becky Lynch has come around’ on this week’s WWE Raw to let the world know that she’s pregnant and thus had to vacate the Raw Women’s Championship. On a dramatic note, Asuka became the new champion on the show, just moments later which makes her only the second Grand Slam Women’s Champion in the female division history.
Fans and superstars congratulated Becky Lynch for the pregnancy news before she went into an indefinite hiatus. After having a steady run as the face of the Women’s Division, she won’t be seen around for a long time. Following her appearance on WWE Raw, the former champion took to Twitter to send a special message to WWE fans,
“I have no idea what happens from here, but I do know that you’ve made all my dreams come true. I entered the PC in 2013 not knowing anyone, I’ll leave that same building tonight with my new family. Thank you all so much.”
Becky Lynch spoke with People Magazine around the RAW announcement to confirm that she and fiancé Seth Rollins are expecting together. She also revealed being due in the month of December,
“I’ve always, always wanted kids,” Becky Lynch told People. “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?’ “
"You go and be a warrior, 'cause I'm gonna go be a mother."

The 33-year-old superstar proceeded to say that her vision to be a mother started becoming true once she got engaged with Seth Rollins. The former Universal Champion is someone who always tries to be a better person. Rollins can be the best father of her child.
“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,” Becky Lynch explained. “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.”
Becky Lynch and Rollins found out that they were expecting after she took a number of pregnancy tests in April. The first test came out negative, but Lynch followed her instincts and made herself available for a digital test, which confirmed that she’s expecting the baby, indeed.
“I took the first one wrong,” Lynch recalled. “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'm gonna miss you guys."

Regarding their marriage, Becky Lynch again stated that she had the plans to tie the knot with Seth Rollins in May of this year. But that’s not possible due to the coronavirus pandemic. They are not in a hurry while setting up the next date for their wedding but rather more excited for their first baby to arrive.
