Former WWE Superstar Cassie Lee and her husband Shawn Spears have announced the wonderful news that they are expecting their first child.
Cassie Lee made the announcement on her social media as she shared a heartwarming video of her breaking the news to her stunned husband, adding the caption “Can’t wait to meet you.”
Many wrestling fans will know Cassie Lee best from her time in WWE as Peyton Royce, one half of the former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, The IIconics. Lee, alongside tag team partner Jessie McKay – Billie Kay – was released from the company in April 2021.
The duo then spent some time in IMPACT Wrestling where they also captured tag team gold before leaving the promotion and announcing a hiatus from the wrestling ring.
Shawn Spears was a key contributor to the MJF and Wardlow feud in AEW and had been one of the founding members of The Pinnacle before that. Spears last competed in the company in the Steel Cage match in which Wardlow defeated him allowing Mr. Mayhem his chance to fight MJF in their controversial bout at Double Or Nothing.
Several wrestling stars responded to Lee and Spears’ wonderful news with comments coming on Lee’s post from the likes of Big E, Anna Jay, Natalya, Bayley, and Becky Lynch.
Everyone at Inside The Ropes sends their congratulations and best wishes to Cassie Lee and Shawn Spears.
