Becky Lynch announced her pregnancy back in May. She relinquished her RAW Women’s title to Asuka at WrestleMania, and since then, she has been absent from WWE TV.
On Wednesday, Lynch gave the world the first glimpse into her pregnancy as she uploaded a story on her Instagram account. In the story, Lynch posted a photo of herself from a workout, in which her shadow showed just how far along she was in the pregnancy. This was also her first picture of the baby bump.
This is Lynch’s first child with fellow WWE superstar Seth Rollins, with the couple expecting in December. Lynch is keeping herself fit and working out safely with the pregnancy.
‘The Man’ fully intends to return to WWE after she has the baby. In fact, she has reiterated in the past that motherhood won’t stop her from in-ring competition. She looks up to other mothers like Asuka, Lacey Evans, Tamina, and Mickie James.
The former women’s champion loves wrestling and felt this was a good time for her to start a family. But she will surely be back as she is not done in the squared circle. The baby and the pregnancy gave her the motivation to be back as soon as possible.
In an interview with ESPN, Lynch spoke about the adversities of a comeback. She named a few female superstars who are balancing work and motherhood perfectly.
“Of course, to be on the level with the male performers and be on the same level in terms of pay, in terms of treatment. But also, this goes hand in hand where a guy can go and have a kid and doesn’t have to miss a beat in his career. Unfortunately, we do. But that’s also a fortunate thing because we get to experience things that they never will, but also it just doesn’t mean that it’s got to be the end for a career in any line. And I think a lot of people have proved that, and I hope to join them.”
We hope to see the ‘Man’ back in the ring after she and Rollins welcome their child into the world.
