We have some exciting news to report today, as former WWE diva Kelly Kelly is pregnant with her first child! She revealed the news exclusively to Entertainment Tonight earlier today.
Below are some highlights from Kelly Kelly’s interview with ET:
On being pregnant:
“I am feeling amazing,” Kelly Kelly tells ET exclusively. “I’ve been dreaming about this journey to motherhood for so long and starting a family with my incredibly supportive husband, Joe. Now that it’s here, it’s just been such a great experience.”
“Obviously, the first trimester is not so dreamy with all the morning sickness,” she shares. “But once I got out of that, the second trimester has been great. I feel like I’m myself again and have all the energy to do the things I love and missed during the first trimester like working out, etcetera.”
On her past fertility issues:
“I think for me, the reason I wanted to be so open about my journey was because of the positive response I got back from so many fans and people all around the world, including men, after I shared about my miscarriage and how that experience has also affected them,” she tells ET. “The overwhelming responses of ‘Thank you so much for sharing your story, I wish it was talked about more,’ was really all I needed to be inspired to want to be a strong voice and to be open and honest about my fertility journey.”
The WWE diva adds, “I don’t want women to think they are alone or going to be looked down on or think something’s wrong with them, so they are ashamed to talk about this. One out of five women struggles to get pregnant after one year of trying.”
On her immediate wrestling future:
“This definitely means taking a break from wrestling for a while for sure, to really focus on my new family,” she says. “I love getting the chance to perform for the fans whenever I can, and WWE has always been great about leaving the door open for me whenever I want to come back. So who knows what will happen in the future after the baby? Maybe we will have a future wrestler on our hands?”
