The Miz's focus is on his newborn baby girl.
Since the birth of his daughter Monroe Sky Mizanin the happiness of The Miz on WWE TV has been seeping through despite him attempting to keep up with his "heel" persona. "The Most Must-See WWE Superstar Of All Time" has not held back in mentioning that the birth of his daughter has given him a new meaning in life and is driving him to be the best in his profession. While speaking with TV Insider to promote the new season of 'The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars' which he will be hosting, The Miz explained how becoming a father has changed his perspective on life.
“You literally have to pry her from my arms,” he said. “Every time I leave it’s just so heartbreaking. It’s funny; all my friends were like, ‘When you have a kid, it changes you.’ I was always the guy who said, ‘No it won’t. Now I understand and get it. This little girl from when I first met her stole my heart. She opened up a whole new area of my heart that I didn’t even know I had. There was this love you have for your son or daughter that is indescribable. You can’t describe it until it happens. I now understand and get it.” He continued. "I work as much as I possibly can while making sure my family and that I are mentally and physically enough to proceed. As long as I’m having fun and my family is having fun and we are living the life we want to live, I will continue to do what I’m doing…I enjoy working, I enjoy what I do. I’m part of a team, I’m part of a team at home with Maryse and Monroe, I’m part of a team with WWE, and if one of those pieces goes away, that messes up the team comradery. I didn’t want to do that to Maryse or WWE. Luckily, I have a beautiful wife who is so understanding and has been in the business. WWE has been accommodating to me that they are like, ‘Listen, you can come whenever you need to come or whenever you need to be there. We’ll give you whatever you need.’ They’ve been very helpful.”
The Miz and Maryse's show 'Miz & Mrs.' is set to air on the USA Network this year. Although those types of shows are considered "reality television" the former 8-time WWE Intercontinental Champion feels otherwise, stating that their show will be more than just reality TV.
"You learn over the years for these shows that you need good characters,” he said. “Little did I know that the most amazing characters are the characters of my life, which are Maryse, her mother, my mom, my dad, my family, my friends. As much as I’d love to call [Miz & Mrs.] a reality show, it’s really not. It’s documenting first-time parents in the entertainment industry and the things you have to go through. There are funny moments because honestly, this is a 30-minute comedy where you are going to be able to relate to it whether you have kids or not. Just some of the things my wife and I go through, it’s just insane. I’ve been pooped on, peed on by Monroe Sky. I am at her service. Feeding her, cleaning her, rocking her, singing to her."
