Fantastic news from WWE's Alexa Bliss and husband Ryan Cabrera.

Alexa Bliss

WWE's Alexa Bliss and husband Ryan Cabrera are expecting their first child, the couple has announced.

Bliss and Cabrera have told E! News that they were "shocked" to learn Alexa was pregnant, as they "weren't trying at all." Alexa is due to give birth in December.


Said Alexa:-

"It was a total surprise, as we weren't trying at all... we Facetimed my mom immediately and then shared the news with Ryan's family."

Cabrera, meanwhile, added that they were "one million per cent surprised," but "couldn't be more excited."


WWE has congratulated Bliss and Cabrera, posting the following:-

WWE Superstar Alexa Bliss is expecting her first child with her husband, musician Ryan Cabrera, she announced on social media.
Bliss, a former three-time Raw Women’s Champion, three-time WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion, two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion and Money in The Bank winner, shared the news to her millions of followers with a due date set to come later this year.
Congratulations to Alexa and Ryan on the joyous news!

The couple have been together since February 2020 and married since April 2022, when they were wedded in Palm Desert, California.


Bliss hasn't wrestled for WWE since Royal Rumble 2023 (28 January), where she failed to capture Bianca Belair's Raw Women's Championship from Bianca Belair. The former multi-time Women's Champion has been off television ever since. In March, she revealed a skin cancer diagnosis, necessitating surgery to remove it from her face. Thankfully, Alexa has since been given the all-clear.

Congratulations to the happy parents-to-be!
