WWE stars Becky Lynch, 33, and Seth Rollins, 34, are now parents of a baby named Roux. Becky revealed that she had given birth to their first child in an Instagram post on Dec. 7, which showed a photo of Becky and her fiancé clutching the little hand of their newborn baby! “Welcome to the world Roux. You are the love of our lives. #andnew,” Becky captioned the sweet photo of her new arrival swaddled in a cozy floral print onesie.
Of course, the WWE community was thrilled — including its now retired stars, twins Nikki and Brie Bella. “Goosebumps!!! Sooo happy for you both!!! [pink heart emoji] Hi Roux!!!,” Brie gushed in the comments section, while her twin sister wrote, “Roux!!! Aww I love! So incredibly happy for you and Colby! Welcome to the world sweet baby girl!” The rest of Becky’s comments were filled with just as sweet congratulatory remarks for her and Seth, whose real name is Colby Daniel Lopez.
Seth shared the same photo, simply captioning it with the hashtag “#andnew” (which Becky also used). Roux arrived in the world after Becky announced her pregnancy in the most legendary way possible on the May 11 episode of WWE Raw. During the emotional episode, Becky handed over her Raw Women’s Championship title to Asuka and said, “You go and be a warrior, ’cause I’m gonna go be a mother.” It was an iconic moment on WWE television!
After the pregnancy announcement, Becky made it clear that becoming a mother didn’t mean her career with WWE was ending. Becky said she hopes to “join” the women in her industry who have continued to pursue their WWE careers after her baby is born, just like the many “male performers” who have became dads in an interview with ESPN.
This is a big milestone for Becky and Seth, who started dating in the beginning of 2019 and became engaged by August of that year. Right before Becky dropped the big baby news in May, Seth EXCLUSIVELY toldHollywoodLife that he and Becky are going to “enjoy quality time as opposed to work time” — which included getting “full nights of sleep” and “hang[ing] out” with his animals — amid quarantine. Congratulations to the new parents, who now get to add raising a baby to their list of quarantine activities!
