Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins are new parents. On Monday, the couple announced the birth of their first baby together. This comes shortly after Lynch showed off her baby bump for the first time on social media in new pregnancy photos.
"Welcome to the world Roux. You are the love of our lives," Lynch wrote while showing a photo of her, Rollins and the new baby holding hands. Lynch announced she was pregnant in May and was forced to relinquish the WWE Raw Women's Championship. She has been off WWE TV ever since, and Rollins recently took time off to spend time with his family.

"I've always, always wanted kids," she told PEOPLE just before she made the announcement on Raw back in May. "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?'" When Lynch made the announcement on Raw, many fans and wrestlers were surprised to hear the news. As she was speaking, Lynch said she had to "go away for a while," and then asked fellow WWE Superstar Asuka to come to the ring.
"You have beaten me when nobody else could," Lynch said to Asuka. "You have been the best wrestler in the world for a long time and this is why I'm so glad this is happening to you." One day before the announcement, Asuka won the Money in the Bank ladder match which guarantees her a title match against Lynch. However, Lynch unlocked the Money in the Bank briefcase, revealing the Raw Women's Championship. "The match last night was for the Raw Women's Championship," Lynch added. "I can't fight anymore, but you can." Lynch then ended the segment by saying, "You go and be a warrior, because I'm going to go be a mother."
Lynch had a big year in 2019 as she won the Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania 35 and got engaged to Rollins a few months later. 2020 has been better for Lynch as she's now a new mother. Fans are hoping to see Lynch in the ring in the near future, and while she wants to return, there is no timetable on when the former Raw and SmackDown Women's Champion will be seen on WWE TV again.
