Wrestling royalty could be on the way.
Several WWE-related accounts announced on Wednesday that former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan and former WWE Divas Champion Brie Bella are expecting their first child in spring 2017.
The timing of the announcement is quite handy, as Bryan and Bella's new reality show Total Bellas debuts on E! tonight. The show also features current WWE Superstars John Cena and Nikki Bella
“It has always been a dream of mine to become a mother. Now that it is finally real, it fills me up with so much happiness. I can’t wait to see my husband, Bryan, be a father to our child. I am so excited for this new chapter in our lives," Brie told E! News.

“The day we found out, I just couldn’t stop smiling. We are so excited to be parents. Every time I look at Brie’s stomach, I’m amazed that there is a little life in there," said Bryan.
Daniel Bryan was forced to retire from in-ring action earlier this year after suffering from concussion issues, despite his best efforts to return to the ring. His wife Brie decided to retire this year as well, emerging victorious at WrestleMania in a multi-woman match to close out her career. Bella specified that she wanted to focus on her marriage and starting a family.
