Living life on the road can be challenging for many WWE Superstars. That’s why it may be hard for some to start a family and settle down in a traditional relationship. For others, fatherhood comes easy as they raise children and visit home as often as possible while on the road.
Because of their on-screen characters or choices to keep their lives personal, many WWE Superstars keep their family life on the down-low. This is why it’s often surprising when a wrestler reveals that they have one or multiple children. As these leaks come out, it’s interesting to see which WWE characters are actually great fathers and raising multiple kids.
Read and learn about some of your favorite WWE Superstars that have kids. Some of these stars have children on the way and others have even married WWE Divas and had children with them. Each of these wrestlers is a current member of the WWE roster. As they travel on the road, they also take a lot of time to focus on raising their children and being the best father they can possibly be.
15 Bray Wyatt
The Wyatt Family is a lot different on-screen then it is off-screen. On SmackDown Live, Bray is an evil and creepy monster that loves to control his minions and haunt WWE Superstars. At home, the Wyatt family is a loving family where Bray takes time to raise his two daughters alongside his wife. It must be weird when Bray uses a rocking chair to soothe his children to sleep at night...
Bray is from a big wrestling family and there’s a chance that his young daughters could enter the wrestling business at some stage. It’s no secret that Bray’s brother Bo is a wrestler and their father is formerly known as WWE Superstar I.R.S. It must be so different to see him with his children outside of the wrestling ring and looking at the pictures, he truly looks like a loving father.
14 Brock Lesnar
Brock Lesnar is unapologetic in the WWE ring and goes there just to get business done. At home, it’s very different as Lesnar is the father to four children. His first two children are a set of twins by the names of Mya and Brock Jr. Years later, Lesnar married former WWE Diva Sable and the couple had another pair of children together. Their two kids are both boys named Turk and Duke.
Lesnar lives in the farm areas of Saskatchewan where he raises his children. He keeps much of his life private, staying off social media and talking very little about his children to the press. One day, it’s feasible that one of his children may decide to enter the wrestling or MMA business to follow in their father’s footsteps.
13 Erick Rowan
Another Wyatt Family member with a different side to his life. Erick Rowan is known in the WWE for wearing creepy sheep masks, but at home he wears the role of a father. Not much has been revealed about Rowan’s family, but a recent Christmas card was released to the public. This card showcases Rowan with his wife and their two children. He has an older boy and a younger daughter.
Rowan is currently injured and spending time away from the WWE. As he heals, he's likely spending a lot of time with his children before he hits the road again and makes his journey back through the ranks of the WWE. Time will tell if Rowan branches out on his own or if he will rejoin The Wyatt Family once again.
12 The Usos
Both of The Usos have children, not only making them fathers, but it also makes former WWE Superstar and Hall of Fame inductee Rikishi a grandfather. Jimmy Uso is currently married to WWE Diva Naomi, but he has two children from a previous relationship. Jimmy is the father to a boy and girl named Jayla and Jaiden, keeping up with the family’s “J” traditions.
Jey Uso has been married for a few years now and has two sons with his wife. While Jimmy has appeared on Total Divas with his children, Jey has kept a lot of his personal life private from the public. Both stars have tag teamed well in the ring and are likely to do the same while fathering their children in their personal lives.
11 Corey Graves
Corey Graves may have been forced out of the ring due to concussion issues, but he continues to make a living while leaving his mark on the WWE audiences as an announcer. The newest voice of WWE Raw is not just a father, he’s a father to three young children. The tattooed rocker finds a lot of time for family time with his wife and kids.
Graves’ oldest child is a boy and his two others are daughters. Graves and his wife are often posting snapshots of the children on both of their Instagram accounts. Graves’ brother is also in the wrestling business, so there’s a chance that wrestling flows through the bloodline and his children may someday find themselves looking for an opportunity to join the WWE while their father watches on in the commentary booth.
10 Kofi Kingston
The high-flying member of The New Day can use all of his agility and in-ring skills to chase his little children around. Kofi Kingston is a father of two as he and his wife welcomed a baby boy into the fold in April of 2016. With a full name of Orion Kingsley Sarkodie-Mensah, Kingston looked to the stars to name his second child and is a proud father that loves to boast on Twitter about his children.
Kofi has enjoyed a lengthy career in the WWE, getting the ability to save up money to support his family for years to come. Now Kingston knows what to do with all of those extra unicorn horns leftover from The New Day. Those would make great toys for his kids as they grow older. Toss in some Booty-O’s and he'll become the father of the year in the eyes of his children!
9 Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens showcases his love of fatherhood in his WWE ring name alone. He changed his ring name from Steen to Owens in a reference to his son, Owen. Kevin actually named his son after WWE legend Owen Hart. He also has a young daughter named Élodie Leila. Owens children love to watch Kevin perform in the WWE and reactions of them watching him have been posted over social media.
Before joining the WWE, Owens even involved his son in a match when he was just six months old. After a wrestler insulted the baby, Owens attacked him and then placed the baby on his chest to count the pinfall victory. This could be a foreshadowing of the future if Owen decides to pursue a wrestling career.
8 The Undertaker
The Undertaker has enjoyed a legendary run in the WWE, but he also has his hands full as a father at home outside of the ring. The Undertaker has four children with three different women. His first child is also his only son named Gunner. He then has two children with his ex-wife Sara, both daughters named Chasey and Gracie.
More recently, The Undertaker had his fourth child and third daughter with former WWE Diva Michelle McCool. Born in 2012, their daughter is named Kaia Faith. Even though his ex-wife Sara was used in a storyline with DDP, The Undertaker’s children were never involved with any on-air stories or mentions. His son Gunner is now well over the age of 20 and time will tell if he seeks to follow in his father’s footsteps.
7 Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns is not a good guy. He’s not a bad guy. He’s just THE GUY... that is also a father. Roman Reigns may be tough in the ring, but he’s sweet at home with his daughter Joelle. Just like his relatives, The Usos, Reigns stuck with the “J” for children’s names and he may use that again if he ever has any other children.
Roman Reigns actually starred with his daughter in a PSA on fatherhood. In the video ad, Reigns sings with his daughter while still appearing in his wrestling gear. It’s fun to see a different side of Reigns that is completely different than his super serious in-ring persona. Growing up in a wrestling family, it’s pretty obvious that Reigns will likely involve his daughter in the business somehow.
6 Jack Swagger
Jack Swagger is not only a proud American, but he's also a proud father. Wrestling in the WWE since 2008, Swagger has kept a lot of his personal life secrets, but he has revealed some about his children. Jack Swagger has been married to his wife since 2010. They welcome in their first child into the world in 2011 and named him Knox.
In 2015, Swagger and his wife had their second child, a daughter named Presley. Swagger often tweets about his life, family, and adventures on the road. He's is currently on the SmackDown brand where he recently feuded with Baron Corbin. The former Money in the Bank winner and World Heavyweight Champion has left a big mark in the WWE and still has a chance to build a big future with the company... if the WWE decides to put him on an episode of SmackDown one day.
In the ring, Goldust is referred to the as The Bizarre One. He's been a part of some crazy antics and storylines particularly during the wacky 90s era. One of his first managers was WWE Diva Marlena. The two were actually married in real life and had a daughter in the 1990s by the name of Dakota Avery.
This is the only biological child that Goldust has, but he often posts about a stepdaughter that he has with his current wife. For Dakota, it must be interesting to look back on her father’s career and see all of the crazy moments he’s had in the ring. That includes his WrestleMania XII match, crazy TNA storylines, and all of the moments in-between. Goldust is a generational Superstar, but there has been no sign of Dakota joining the WWE anytime soon.
4 Curtis Axel
Curtis Axel is a third generational Superstar and famously known for being the son of former WWE wrestler Mr. Perfect. It seems like Curtis could be raising the first-ever fourth generational Superstar with his son Brock. Brock was born in 2009 and Axel often participates in family activities like camping and ice fishing. Axel is also a huge NFL fan and probably plays fantasy football with his children.
Along with Brock, Axel has two other sons, but their names have not been revealed. This gives him three chances to build up a new star to take on the WWE mantle. Maybe they'll all join the company and create the Perfect Stable. The former Intercontinental Champion still has a lot to prove in the WWE before he lets his sons take over the role.
3 3. Mark Henry
The World’s Strongest Man also spends every day trying to be The World’s Best Father. Henry has endured a long career in the WWE and spends his off-time raising two children with his wife, Jana. They have a son named Jacob and a daughter named Joanna. Henry lives in Austin, Texas with his family and they try to live a low-key life while Henry is traveling with the WWE. Mark has revealed a few pictures of his family online, showcasing his love and compassion for being a father.
Despite fathering Mae Young’s hand in the WWE, Henry has never brought up his kids for a storyline. He’s had lots of crazy stories through the years and you can only imagine his kids reactions when they discover just a few of them on the WWE Network.
2 Daniel Bryan
As of this writing, Daniel Bryan is not an official father, but he will be by April of 2016. Bryan and former WWE Superstar Brie Bella are both expecting their first child. This was actually one of the main reasons that Bryan retired from in-ring action, as he wanted to be healthy and present to help raise his children.
Bryan’s entire journey through the pregnancy has been featured on The Bella's YouTube channel. They reveal a lot of information about the child, including their journey on selecting the baby's name. One thing is confirmed – the baby’s name will start with a B. It'll be interesting to see how Bryan’s road schedule changes after the baby is born. Their newborn will also likely be featured on episodes of Total Divas and Total Bellas.
1 A.J. Styles
The Phenomenal One also considers himself a Phenomenal Father. A.J. Styles has enjoyed a great career in the pro wrestling industry and has also kept busy by raising his children. Styles has four children and is a part of a big family. He calls himself a dad to three boys and one daughter. Each of the children’s names can be seen tattooed on Styles’ stomach. Corey Graves even featured the tattoo for his daughter on his web series about tattoos.
Following in A.J.’s namesake, all of his children have names that start with the letter A. This includes Albey, Anney, Avery, and Ajay. His children are often seen on his Instagram account. One of his son's plays in a youth football league and they're all heavily interested in various sports like baseball and soccer.
