Candice LeRae and Johnny Gargano are expecting their first child together.
The couple broke the news of Candice's pregnancy via Gargano's Twitter account earlier today, posting images of an ultrasound scan:-
The secret's out! Our team is getting a little bigger..AdvertisementAugust 12, 2021
As shown in the first image, the baby is due to be born in February 2022.
LeRae last wrestled for WWE on the 6 July episode of NXT. She and Indi Hartwell lost the Women's Tag Team Championships to Io Shirai and Zoey Stark that night, before Tegan Nox returned from long-term injury to seemingly set up a program with Candice, who "injured" Tegan in kayfabe. Any plans for a feud were cut short as Nox was promoted to SmackDown alongside Shotzi Blackheart three days later.
Gargano and LeRae have been married since September 2016. Their relationship predates their time in WWE, with Johnny signing with the promotion in April 2016 and Candice officially inking a deal in January 2018, playing a supplementary role in Gargano's feud with Tommaso Ciampa shortly after.
The duo are currently united onscreen as members of The Way, their stable with Indi Hartwell and Austin Theory.
Congratulations to the happy parents-to-be!
