With WrestleMania in the books, there were many children in the audience and watching around the globe. Some of those children looked at WrestleMania as something a little more special than the average child. They weren't just watching in anticipation to see their favourite WWE superstars, but they were watching for their parents.
More than half of the superstars participating throughout WrestleMania's match card are parents. They were putting their bodies on the line to support their families and making their children proud. The biggest show of the year put a smile on many children's faces. This list will showcase what some of those children who were cheering on their parents look like.
We know that The Miz is a new father to his first child, daughter Monroe Skye, but he is in company of over 20 other current WWE superstars that are parents. There are some entries in this list that you may question whether or not they are still signed to the WWE, but as per the official website, all of these entries are currently listed as wrestlers or commentators.
It is always nice to know that these superstars are putting their bodies on the line for little ones who look up to them. We've seen Roman Reigns and Titus O'Neil in Father's Day PSAs and though we saw them shine on the grandest stage of them all, they both made their children proud.
While most of these may not be a secret, here is a list of 25 current WWE superstars who are parents and what their children look like.
25 Randy Orton
God bless you Anthony on your first holy communion. The fact that both of your brothers wore the white suit you wore today was very special for me and I hope for you as well. I love you so very much my sweet boy and I hope today was wonderful for you ❤️🙏🏼 #michaelkorssuit #lookingfresh #mylittlestudmuffin
Randy Orton has been at the top of the WWE for almost two decades, but it wasn't until WrestleMania 34 when he finally became a Grand Slam Champion, capturing the only title he had never won, the United States Championship.
Five years into his career, shortly after he began the Legacy storyline with Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase Jr., Orton married his first wife, Samantha Speno. They welcomed their first and only child together, Alanna on July 12, 2008. The birth came while Orton was getting over a motorcycle injury.
Orton and Speno divorced in 2013, after being separated for almost a year. While Orton was on television aligning himself with the Wyatt family in the fall of 2015, he was gearing up to add to his family once again. He married his second wife, Kimberly Kessler, on November 14, 2015. Their family grew once again when Kessler gave birth to her fourth child, but first with Orton, daughter Brooklyn Rose, on November 22, 2016.
24 Jeff Hardy
Over the years, we have seen Jeff Hardy take many risks that shock us to see him walk away from. Alongside his older brother Matt, helped changed the game of tag team wrestling with the classic TLC matches with the Dudley Boyz and Edge & Christian.
Since the first time he had won the WWE tag team championships with his brother in 1999, he has had one woman stand by his side, Beth Britt. Die-hard fans of the Hardy Boyz have seen her make many appearances on the internet series that the brothers started called The Hardy Show.
After 11 years together, the happy couple welcomed their first child, a daughter Ruby Claire, named after Hardy's late mother, on October 19, 2010.
Four and a half months after Ruby's birth, Hardy and Britt tied the knot. They welcomed their second daughter, Nera Quinn on December 31,2015. His eldest daughter had been seen on a segment that aired on a TNA iMPACT, before a match against Jeff Jarrett.
23 AJ Styles
Phenomenal everywhere he went, AJ Styles had an amazing career in wrestling companies all across the globe. He was the first ever X Division Champion in TNA, eventually becoming the first ever Triple Crown Champion. He was synonymous with helping TNA become the company to rival the WWE.
After 11 years in TNA, Styles, born Allen Jones, had spent the next three years giving his career longevity maintaining in the world championship picture anywhere he went. He was signed by the WWE when his contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling, where he was a member of the Bullet Club along with two other men who got signed by the WWE, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.
It was no secret that AJ had a family to support him.
The Gainesville, Georgia native has a tattoo on the right side of his torso, displaying his initials and the dates each of his four children born. Styles and his wife Wendy have three sons Ajay, Avery and Albey, as well as a daughter Anney.
22 Titus O'Neil
In January I was awarded the “Drum Major For Justice “Award from the Dr. Martin Luther King Parade Foundation. It was a proud Moment for me and My Family and a Reminder that His work was nowhere near completed. It Should not be forgotten that at his death Martin Luther King, Jr was fighting for higher wages for workers. Economic equality His quest for Change in this world then is just as pressing now!! #MLK50 @bullard111
Titus O'Neil has never been shy when talking about his sons, Thaddeus Jr. and Titus. They have been seen backstage and in the crowd at many WWE events and were event featured in a PSA that aired around Father's Day a few years back.
O'Neil does everything with his boys in mind, making sure that they watch their father with pride.
Seeing him being in high contention in the tag team picture on Raw must light up their faces each week. Being a father has made O'Neil be high on the list of superstars that young children want to meet. Constantly helping out with youth charities, he uses his fame to help the youth of America get a better education and learn stronger values as often as he can. By doing this, he is putting his best foot forward to set a great example for his sons by helping others.
21 Kurt Angle
Kurt Angle finally came home to the WWE in 2017, after spending over a decade wrestling for TNA. Being the first ever American Olympic gold medalist in the WWE, it has been said that Angle picked up the basics of the business quicker than most expected him to.
Angle became a Triple Crown Champion in both WWE and TNA, and also became a Grand Slam Champion during his first run in the WWE. Currently working as the on-screen general manager of Raw, Angle has competed in a handful of matches, all of them having a lot of emotional build-up.
We heard during his Hall of Fame speech on April 1, 2017, that he thanked all of his kids for helping him find his moral ground while going through legal issues.
He has two children from his first marriage with Karen, daughter Kyra and son Kody. With his second wife, Giovanna, he has three daughters, Giuliana, Sophia, and Nikoletta.
20 Erick Rowan
Since he stepped foot in the WWE, Erick Rowan has always been mysterious. Wearing a goat mask as a member of the Wyatt family, he rarely spoke and would show off his talents through his size and strength.
Holding down his own as a tag team partner with Luke Harper, Rowan helped Bray Wyatt defeat his foes and keep the fear alive. Now as half of the Bludgeon Brothers with Harper on Smackdown, he is currently holding the tag team championships for the blue brand, which they won at WrestleMania.
Not much as been released about Rowan's personal life on WWE television, as his character is meant to be feared and interviews don't touch on his life outside of the WWE. The names of his family are not known, but we do know that Rowan is married, and has two children. Judging by the picture above, his firstborn was his son, followed by a daughter.
19 Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens, born Kevin Steen, has quickly risen to one of the WWE's top superstars since debuting in NXT in December 2014. He had quickly become the NXT champion and it didn't take long to be called up to the main roster, debuting on Raw on May 11,2015. Steen won his first championship on the main roster four months later, on September 20,2015, defeating Ryback for the Intercontinental Championship. He had become the first French-Canadian to win a title since Maryse held the Divas Championship. He has gone on to win the title once more, hold the Universal championship once, and the United States Championship three times.
Steen and wife Katrina have two children together. Their son Owen, who was named after the late Owen Hart, is inspiration for his current ring name.
They also have a daughter named Elodie Leila. Both kids have appeared in many photos on KO's Instagram and Twitter accounts.
18 Cedric Alexander
When Cedric Alexander won the Cruiserweight Championship at the WrestleMania 34 Kick-off show, the one thing on his mind was making his little girl, Adessah proud.
We may have seen Alexander in an on-screen romance with Alicia Fox, when behind the scenes, he was in a committed relationship. Happily engaged, he puts his body on the line and lives out the "Age of Alexander" for his two favourite ladies.
Now four years old, Adessah got to spend time backstage at WrestleMania 34 to meet her favourites Bayley, Asuka and Finn Balor, as seen on her father's Instagram account.
Alexander has been quoted saying that his daughter calls him a champion every morning, and even told Princess Tiana when he took her to Disney World for her fourth birthday in December.
With her watching him make that true, there was no doubt that her smile was the biggest in all of New Orleans.
17 Matt Hardy
All his life, Matt Hardy had dreamed of being a professional wrestler. At a young age, along with his younger brother Jeff, Hardy had sewn and made his and his brother's wrestling gear. The gear they wore in their first WWE match was made by Hardy.
Though he came up in the business as a tag team specialist, Hardy made major waves through the wrestling world when he debuted his "Broken" gimmick in TNA. After capturing his first world championship in the company, another side Hardy had emerged and his promos were some of the most watched in TNA during that time.
Along with welcoming the cameras into his home for several promos, Hardy had his wife, Reby Sky, by his side in their home and ringside. The TNA audience was also introduced to their couple first son, Maxel, or "King Maxel" as he was referred to in the video packages. The couple welcomed their second son, Wolfgang Xander shortly after the Hardys' WrestleMania 33 return, on June 8, 2017.
16 The Miz & Maryse
He may be the "most must-see superstar" in all of the WWE, but The Miz has added one more accomplishment that he had been seeking his whole life. He is a Triple Crown and Grand Slam champion in the WWE, winning the WWE Championship once, the tag titles six times, the United States Championship twice and the title he claims he made relevant once again, eight times. He also has a budding acting career, starring in main role of four movies in the Marine franchise, starting with Marine 3: Homefront in 2013, and the sixth instalment Marine 6: Close Quarters currently filming.
This accomplishment was something outside of his professional life. The Miz, born Mike Mizanin, married his longtime girlfriend, fellow WWE superstar Maryse on February 20, 2014.
One month after their fourth wedding anniversary, the couple welcomed their first child together, daughter Monroe Skye on March 27, 2018.
While the little bundle of joy may have arrived a week early, she appears to be in great health and her father speaks highly fondly of her any chance he gets.
15 Brock Lesnar
Brock Lesnar is a WWE superstar that no one in the WWE locker room wants to get angry. At least, not on-screen.
Lesnar's debut in the WWE in 2002 marketed him as "The Next Big Thing," and that he was. Just like he does now, he plowed through every wrestler that crossed his path. Within five months, Lesnar had captured his first world championship, defeating The Rock at SummerSlam on August 22, 2002 for the WWE Undisputed Championship. Less than two years after his debut, he had made his first departure from the company, moving on to wrestle for New Japan from 2005-2007.
Lesnar had found success in the world of mixed martial arts, quickly capturing the UFC Heavyweight Championship before making a return to the WWE in 2012. Since returning to the WWE, he has worked on a part-time basis, but still manages to have main event matches and is the current Universal Champion.
When he's not on the road, Lesnar spends his time on his farm in Saskatchewan, Canada. He lives there with his wife, Rena, formerly known as WWE Diva Sable. Together, the couple has two sons. Lesnar also has twins, one boy and one girl, from a previous relationship.
14 Roman Reigns
Born into the legendary Samoan family that has been making waves in the wrestling world for the last three generations, Roman Reigns was born to be a WWE superstar.
First making waves as a member of the Shield with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, Reigns, born Leati Joseph Anoa'i, rose to main event status in a way that some could call controversial. It was clear that the audience wasn't behind the push that creative was giving him, and yet he continued to be booked in main event matches and gaining title shots. His first reign as WWE champion was tainted with the fans thinking he didn't deserve it.
Finally, in the months leading up to WrestleMania 34, it seemed as though the fans had started to truly see the potential that Reigns has and while the "boos" were still heard, they were less than they were when he had won the 2015 Royal Rumble.
Whether the fans loved or hated him, Reigns always had his family to go home to.
He married his longtime girlfriend Galina Becker in December 2014, six months after their first born, daughter Joelle (pictured above) was born. The family grew by two in 2016, when the couple welcomed twin boys.
13 Jimmy Uso
We know from watching Total Divas that Jimmy Uso, born Jonathan Fatu, is married to the WWE superstar with the most glow, Naomi. More than that, along with his twin brother, he has been on top of the Smackdown tag team division for over a year.
Before he began appearing on the reality show on the E! Network, Fatu had a previous marriage. The name of his first wife is not known to the public. The marriage did bring him two children. He has a son Jaidan and a daughter Jayla.
There are many pictures on Fatu's social media accounts displaying the fun times that he has with his children.
Naomi, born Trinity McCray, loves being a stepmother to these two and the love can be seen throughout Instagram and Twitter. You can feel the love through the photos. Jimmy takes any chance he can when the WWE rolls through Florida to bring his kids backstage.
12 Karl Anderson
We know that Karl Anderson had spent many years wrestling in Japan before coming to the WWE. He was one of the original members of the Bullet Club with Luke Gallows, Adam Cole and Finn Balor, who wrestled in Japan as Prince Devitt. Since getting signed to the WWE, Anderson has captured the Raw Tag Team Championships once with Gallows.
While living in Japan he met his wife. There is not much known about his wife, but she can be seen on Anderson's Instagram photos. Anderson, born Chris Allegra, currently lives with his family in Cincinnati, Ohio.
He has three sons, Caedon, Cylus and Cruz, who he loves to spend every second he can with, and shares the love he has for them on his Twitter and Instagram accounts. On January 28, 2018, just over a week after his 31st birthday, Anderson announced that his wife was expecting the couple's fourth child together.
11 Triple H
We all know that Triple H, born Paul Levesque, is married to the boss' daughter, Stephanie McMahon. Their on-screen romance has had some ups and downs since the beginning until Levesque was named the chief operating officer. They have shown more of their real-life romance after that, displaying a united front.
It was tricky for Vince to get his mind around a WWE superstar dating his daughter. Once he saw how happy the multi-time world champion made his baby girl, there was no stopping their budding romance. The two were married on October 25, 2003. Just under three years later, the couple welcomed their first of three daughters, Aurora Rose, on July 24,2006. Two years and four days later, their second daughter, Murphy Claire was born. Their youngest child, a third daughter named Vaughn Evelyn on August 24, 2010.
Levesque and McMahon rarely have pictures of their daughters' faces shown to the public. The photo above is when the entire McMahon family paid President Donald Trump a visit in the White House.
A man who has been wrestling for the last thirty years, Goldust is the son of the late Ameircan Dream, Dusty Rhodes. Born Dustin Runnels, he has won 20 championships throughout his three-decade career, still wrestling for the WWE today.
While we have seen him use different gimmicks over the last 30 years, the one he has used the longest and gave him the most success was the flamboyant and controversial, Goldust. He began the gimmick in 1995 and though he has tried out others both in and outside of the WWE, he always went back to the black and gold.
Debuting the gimmick alongside his then-wife, Terri Runnels, going by the ring name Marlena, it made this even more confusing at the time. As the years went on and the gimmick flourished, Runnels has been comic relief while teaming with Booker T and more recently, with R-Truth.
Runnels and Terri were married from 1993 to 1999. Together, they have one daughter, and Runnels' only child, Dakota, who was born in 1994.
9 Mickie James
Mickie James has had a tremendous career. She is the only female wrestling history to hold the WWE Women's, WWE Divas and TNA Knockouts championships. Spanning from 2006 to 2013, she has been champion a total of nine times, which is a national record. Since her debut in the WWE in 2005, she has been one of the top contenders in the women's division of any company she wrestled in. She has also conquered the music world, recently releasing her latest single "Left, Right, Left," featuring the Ying Yang Twins.
While she was signed to TNA following her release from the WWE, she had met her husband, Nick Aldis, who also wrestled for the company under the name Magnus. The two welcomed their first child together, a son named Donovan Patrick on September 25, 2014. The couple got engaged three months after the birth of their son, and the following year, on New Year's Eve, December 31, 2015, the two tied the knot.
8 Kofi Kingston
Kofi Kingston is known for being a member of the successful trio, the New Day. His career was doing well long before he joined forces with Xavier Woods and Big E. The Ghana native has had 14 championship reigns since debuting with the WWE ten years ago. He has held the Intercontinental title four time, the United States Championship three times, and seven reigns as tag champion.
Along with his New Day stablemates, he has held the Raw Tag Team championships twice, the second reign was the longest of any tag title in the WWE's history. Cumulatively, Kingston has the record for the largest number of days as WWE/Raw Tag Team Champion.
Kingston married his longtime girlfriend Kori in 2010. Together they have two sons.
Their first-born, Khi, was born in 2013 and his youngest son, Orion, was born on April 29th, 2016.
7 Bobby Roode
Bobby Roode had a great career before debuting on NXT in the summer of 2016. It didn't take long until he made his way to the championship picture. He was undefeated for over a year, until he lost the NXT championship to Drew McIntyre at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III on August 19. 2017. He made his debut on Smackdown three days later, and claimed his first championship since joining the main roster, the United States Championship, on January 16, 2018. That reign may have ended at 54 days, but the title reigns he has held in the past while working for TNA made history.
He is the longest reigning TNA World Champion of all time, and along with James Storm, he has the record for the largest number of days as TNA Tag Team Champions.
Roode has had a great support system in his family since marrying his wife Tracey in 1995. The couple have three sons together, Riley, Nicholas and Robert Roode III.
Apollo has been riding high as a member of the Titus Worldwide brand. Along with Titus O'Neil, he has been a thorn in the side of every tag team on Raw. Growing up, Apollo, born Sesugh Uhaa, played every sport he could at the military high school he attended. He wanted to move away from the military life, and acted on the love he found early on in professional wrestling.
After spending four years honing his craft at Dragon Gate USA, Uhaa signed with the WWE in 2014. He made his in-ring debut at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn on August 22, 2015. The fans got behind Uhaa quickly and were asking for him to be called up to the main roster almost immediately. He had debuted on Raw on April 4, 2016.
He has been on the main roster for just over two years, and he has spent almost a year going home to his baby girl, Sade Sofiya, who Apollo's girlfriend Linda gave birth to on June 22, 2017.
5 Bray Wyatt
Bray Wyatt has had a career that brought us some of the weirdest promos we've seen in years. Speaking in a way that we would normally only hear from a psychiatrist, Wyatt, born Windham Rotunda, comes from a family rich in wrestling history.
Born the eldest child to Mike Rotunda, better known as the Million Dollar Man, Ted DiBiase's right hand man, Irwin R. Schyster. His brother is fellow WWE superstar Bo Dallas. Barry Windham is not only his namesake, but his uncle, and Hall of Famer Blackjack Mulligan is his grandfather.
Though there are rumors that he is in a relationship with Raw ring announcer Jojo Offerman, Rotunda married longtime girlfriend Samantha in 2012, ending in 2017 when Samantha filed for divorce.
The couple have two daughters together. The first, Kendyl, was born in 2011 shortly before they got married, and their second daughter, Cadyn was born a year after their nuptials, in 2013.
4 Daniel Bryan & Brie Bella
In late March, we got the news that we never thought we had been waiting to hear for three years. Daniel Bryan, born Bryan Danielson, was cleared to wrestle again. It had been amazing to see him back in the WWE as the general manager of Smackdown, but we had always wanted to see him come back and do what he loves to do.
As we've seen on Total Divas, Danielson has been in a relationship with Brie Bella for many years. The two tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in 2014, which aired on the reality show.
We have seen the love the Danielsons have in their home and their love only grew when they welcomed their daughter, Birdie Joe, on May 9, 2017.
Birdie can finally watch her daddy wrestle and share the moments that he never thought he would get to experience again. Danielson thanks his wife for pushing him to fight to get cleared, as he said in his first appearance on WWE television since the news was made public.
3 Corey Graves
Corey Graves was a promising superstar in NXT, but his in-ring career was cut short due to injury. His personality was magnetic and the company didn't want to let him go, so they offered him a spot at the commentator's table on NXT. It didn't take long for him to move to Monday nights, sitting alongside Michael Cole. He currently works on both Raw and Smackdown, being the only commentator that gets to call the matches for both brands.
Graves also has a show on the network where he gets behind the meaning of the tattoos donned on the bodies of the WWE superstars. Having many tattoos of his own, Graves, born Matthew Polinsky, is proud of each one of them, getting the first two before he turned 16.
A proud Pittsburgh native, Graves married his longtime girlfriend, Amy in 2009. The two have three children together, two daughters and a son.
2 Heath Slater
He's got kids! No, seriously, he's got kids. Heath Slater may have a current gimmick based on having many children to feed. In reality, the number is much lower than the parade he had in a ring on Smackdown.
Starting his career in the WWE during the first season of NXT, Slater was a member of the group who plowed their way through the top names on the main roster, the Nexus. He had become a three-time WWE Tag Team Champion with Justin Gabriel. After the group disbanded, he debuted a new gimmick as a rockstar. Along with Drew McIntrye and Jinder Mahal, Slater formed the group, 3MB, short for 3 Man Band. As comic relief, the group lasted a lot longer than anyone thought. They didn't receive much success, but were always there to stick their nose in anyone's business.
Currently in a tag team with the veteran, Rhyno, Slater had become the first-ever Smackdown Tag Team Champions. The duo is currently signed to the Raw brand, and Slater does have kids as he exclaims about every chance he can. However, he only has two daughters, Remmedy and Rozalyn, with his wife Stephanie.
1 Jey Uso
Much like it was mentioned in an earlier entry about his twin brother, Jey Uso, born Joshua Fatu, has been on the top of the tag team division for the last couple of years. Unlike his brother, he does not have his personal life recorded for a reality show. The few times he has been seen were surrounding his brother's wedding to fellow WWE superstar Naomi.
Fatu has had a woman standing in his corner, figuratively, for the last several years. He married his longtime girlfriend Takecia Travis in February of 2014. The two have two sons together, who are both under the age of 10. The names of their boys are not known to the public, as Fatu likes to keep his private life private. Pictures of his sons can be seen on his social media accounts, and he has brought them backstage to many WWE live events when they are close to his home in Florida.
