WWE superstars Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins are expecting their first child.

Ireland's Lynch, whose real name is Rebecca Quin, revealed that she’s pregnant at the start of WWE's flagship show Monday Night Raw.

After nearly 400 days as champion, Lynch relinquished the Raw Women's Championship to Asuka - which she won at Sunday's Money in the Bank extravaganza - before announcing her pregnancy.

Lynch's 399 days as champion is the second-longest streak in modern WWE history behind only Trish Stratus (448 days).

“You go and be a warrior, because I’m going to go be a mother,” Lynch told the new champion in an emotional moment.

Lynch, known as 'The Man' in the WWE, is engaged to Rollins whose real name is Colby Lopez. The couple were set to marry in May, but have postponed their wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"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? 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.”

"It's just such a joyous time and then such a sad time too. I loved this and I've given my life to this. I've achieved everything that I want to achieve in this business, I don't know what the next chapter is because I only know what it's like to think for myself when I'm by myself. So I don't know what it'll look like and how my priorities shift and what I'm going to want in the future. So, everything's open,” Lynch told PEOPLE Magazine.
