Seth, a fellow wrestler, shared the same photo on his account.
Becky, whose real name is Rebecca Quin, announced she was expecting during a surprise announcement on Raw back in May.
Talking to People shortly after, Becky said: ‘I’ve always, always wanted kids.’
”I’m just so career-focused that it became one of those things that, when you’re chasing a dream for so long, I always wondered, “Am I going to get around to it? Is it going to happen for me?”‘
Proud parents: ‘Welcome to the world Roux. You are the love of our lives,’ the Irish fighter wrote, tagging the post ‘#andnew.’ The couple is seen in June 2019 at the MTV Movie And TV Awards in Santa Monica
Love: Becky and Seth, who went public with a loved up black and white photo in May 2016. Three months later, they were engaged
It’s been a whirlwind romance for Becky and Seth, who went public with a loved up black and white photo in May 2016. Three months later, they were engaged.
‘When we got together, things started to look a lot clearer and I knew he was the person that I wanted to have kids with — that this was going to happen and it was just a matter of when,’ Lynch told People.
‘Seth is one of the smartest people I know. He’s just got an insane work ethic, insane integrity and he is the most generous, kindhearted person.’
‘He’s very, very focused on what the right thing to do is and always looking to grow and correct himself and be better so he can be the best person for me, and now, the best father,’ she went on.
Unfortunately the couple’s wedding – originally set for this past May – is on hold due to the pandemic.

Becky began training for pro-wrestling as a teenager in Ireland back in 2002 before signing to the WWE in 2013.
Back in April 2019, she defeated both Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair in a triple-threat match at Wrestlemania 35 to become both the WWE Raw and Smackdown Women’s Champion. She later lost the Smackdown belt to Charlotte.
However she held onto the Raw Women’s Title for 400 days until relinquishing it to Asuka after announcing her pregnancy.
Seth began his career on the independent circuit in 2005 and signed a developmental deal with the WWE in August 2010.
He is one of the most accomplished pro-wrestlers in the company as he has held several titles including becoming the first ever heavyweight champion in WWE’s developmental organization NXT and multiple runs as WWE World Heavyweight Champion and Universal Champion.
