Over the past two decades, many real-life WWE couples have tied the knot. A few of them have also become parents.
There are currently several couples on the WWE roster. While some are still dating, like Ricochet and Samantha Irvin, others are engaged, such as Carmella and Corey Graves. A few others have recently married.
Some of these married WWE couples have welcomed children over the past few years. While some try to keep their kids out of the public eye, others like to share the spotlight with their children. A few of these parents have even accompanied their kids to recent wrestling shows.
Here are six current WWE couples who have children.
#6. WWE Hall of Famers Edge and Beth Phoenix
Edge and Beth Phoenix fell in love and started dating after meeting at Edge Appreciation Night in September 2011. Two years later, the couple welcomed their first daughter, Lyric Rose.
In an interview with WWE.com in 2014, The Glamazon spoke about the challenges of being a mother:
"It’s challenging, but in different ways. The challenge with WWE was keeping up with the schedule and trying to stay healthy and uninjured during that time. Now, with motherhood, the biggest responsibility is trying to protect this little baby and care for her and her needs. So the shift has gone from a very egocentric world to making sure that she’s okay," Beth said.
In May 2016, the couple had their second daughter, Ruby Ever. Later that same year, Edge and Phoenix tied the knot.
Although The Rated-R Superstar initially retired in 2011 due to injury, he returned to the ring two years ago after being medically cleared. His wife has also competed in a few matches in the past few years.
The Grit Couple most recently teamed up for the first time to defeat The Miz and Maryse at the Royal Rumble premium live event.
In a recent interview with Muscle and Fitness, Phoenix disclosed that their children are one of the reasons she and her husband still want to compete inside the ring:
"Our kids are now of an age, they are five and eight, so they can appreciate and understand more of Mom and Dad’s careers," she explained.
Edge and Phoenix's daughters recently made an appearance at the Royal Rumble, joining their parents in their victory celebrations on the stage.
#5. WWE Superstars The Miz and Maryse
The Miz and Maryse first met in 2006 when Maryse participated in the WWE Diva Search competition which The Miz hosted. However, their romantic relationship kicked off about a year later. The couple then dated for several years before tying the knot in 2014.
In March 2018, The It Couple welcomed their first daughter, Monroe Sky. They had their second daughter, Madison Jade, in August the following year. In an interview with People, Maryse spoke about the challenges of being a mother:
"I'm with them all day, every day, but I sometimes feel like it's never enough. The mom guilt is really something that not many moms talk about. You leave your house for an hour and you feel guilty about it. That's something I wasn't aware of before I was pregnant. (...) I am basically taking care of my kids the best I can, love them as much as I can, give them everything and can [still] feel like that. It’s honestly very challenging," she said.
In another interview with the same outlet, the former United States Champion stated that his daughters keep him young.
"I love Monroe and Madison. They're incredible [and] they keep me young, I'll tell you that for one thing. They have an immense amount of energy," Miz said.
Unlike many other superstars' children, The It Couple's daughters are well-known to the WWE Universe. Over the past few years, they have appeared on the "Miz and Mrs." reality show. The Miz and Maryse also regularly post photos with their daughters on Instagram.
#4. WWE RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch and Seth "Freakin" Rollins
Although Becky Lynch initially did not want to date a WWE Superstar, she fell in love with Seth "Freakin" Rollins in early 2019. In August that same year, the couple announced their engagement.
In May 2020, Big Time Becks relinquished her RAW Women's Championship after announcing her pregnancy. Lynch then gave birth to her and Rollins' first daughter, Roux, seven months later.
During her latest appearance on Stone Cold Steve Austin's Broken Skull Sessions, Lynch disclosed that she was initially terrified when she found out she would become a mother.
"Before I was terrified, you know. I was like, 'Oh my God, everything is gone, my freedom, my life is over.' I am not going to be able to pick up where I left. Am I going to get back in shape? All of these things that you worry about. Am I going to be a good mother? What if I don't bond with her? All these things, but she is the best. I smile every day because of her. We take her on the road everywhere with us. Yeah, I just got the best of both worlds now. It makes everything better," she said.
In an interview with Good Day DC, Rollins also revealed how becoming a father changed his life.
"I think the biggest thing is you go from living this life as a top tier WWE Superstar — where really it’s all about you. To now you’re in the backseat; you are not the most important part of your life. And so to change everything around is really humbling, but it’s also a cool experience to see it from this perspective and see what life can be when you matter to somebody else. It’s really an awesome experience," he explained.
Lynch returned to in-ring action last August after a 15-month hiatus. She currently holds the RAW Women's Championship. The Man will now defend her title against Lita at the Elimination Chamber premium live event.
Meanwhile, Rollins will compete against Bobby Lashley, Brock Lesnar, Austin Theory, Riddle, and AJ Styles inside the Elimination Chamber for the WWE Championship at the same event.
#3. WWE EVP Triple H and CBO Stephanie McMahon
Triple H and Stephanie McMahon started dating in 2000. Three years later, the couple tied the knot. They now have three children.
In 2006, The Game and The Billion Dollar Princess gave birth to the couple's first daughter, Aurora Rose. Two years later, they had their second, Murphy Claire. In 2010, the couple welcomed their third daughter, Vaughn Evelyn.
In an interview with People TV in 2018, Triple H disclosed that McMahon believes her most important job is being a mother to their three daughters.
"She's an amazing mom. She's up making pancakes first thing in the morning after sleep. She's helping with homework. She's doing all of it. It doesn't matter what she's in the middle of, if the kids call, she drops it. She's with them. No matter what in her life, the most important job is mom, and if she had to drop everything else right now, it wouldn't even be a question," he said.
Speaking with the same outlet, the WWE CBO expressed her desire to see a McMahon-Levesque generation in WWE. McMahon then revealed in an interview with FS1's First Things First that her eldest daughter had already started training to become a wrestler.
"My oldest daughter has already started training. And I would encourage them to follow their passion, you know, whatever they believe in, as long as they work hard at it. I believe in a strong work ethic and I believe they can do anything in the world they wanna do, but they're gonna have to believe in themselves and work hard," Stephanie explained.
Stephanie McMahon last competed in April 2018 when she and her husband lost to Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 34. Meanwhile, Triple H has not wrestled since his defeat against Randy Orton on Monday Night RAW in January 2021.
#2. WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champion Jimmy Uso and Naomi
Jimmy Uso and Naomi first met in WWE. They dated for nearly a year before tying the knot in 2014.
The two wrestlers are yet to have children together. Nevertheless, Uso has two kids, Jayla and Jaiden, from a previous relationship. The two have a good relationship with their stepmother Naomi. Over the past few years, Uso has shared several photos of his wife and kids as they seemed to be having fun together.
In an interview with TV Insider in 2018, the former SmackDown Women's Champion disclosed how her relationship with her husband and stepchildren has developed over the years.
"Where we were in our lives 10 years ago is a lot different than where we are now. We were a lot younger, way more immature. Life is different. Our careers have picked up. We got married. We’re home owners now. I’m full-on, hands-on with my step kids now, which I love. We’re truly adulting," she said.
Jimmy Uso will team up with his brother Jey to defend their SmackDown Tag Team Championships against The Viking Raiders at Elimination Chamber in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. His wife will team up with Ronda Rousey to face Charlotte Flair and Sonya Deville at the same event next Saturday.
#1. WWE Superstars Montez Ford and Bianca Belair
Like all the other duos on this list, Montez Ford and Bianca Belair first met in WWE. The couple started dating in 2015 before announcing their engagement two years later. In June 2018, they tied the knot.
Ford and Belair do not have kids together. Nonetheless, the former RAW Tag Team Champion has two children from a previous relationship. The EST of WWE is now their stepmother.
Celebrating Mother's Day last May, Ford posted several photos of his wife with her stepchildren. He captioned the pictures with a heartfelt message to Belair.
"Happy Mother’s Day to the beautiful woman that keeps our wild kingdom in order & balanced.....Cause it’s definitely not me," he wrote.
Judging by the photos, Belair seems to have a strong bond with her two stepkids.
Ford and his Street Profits partner Angelo Dawkins recently lost to The Alpha Academy last Monday on RAW. Meanwhile, Belair defeated Nikki A.S.H. on the same episode.
The EST of WWE will compete next Saturday at Elimination Chamber against Liv Morgan, Rhea Ripley, Doudrop, Nikki A.S.H, and an unannounced opponent for a shot at the RAW Women's Title at WrestleMania 38.
