Alexa Bliss doesn’t want to rush her WWE return after giving birth to her first child.

WWE Superstar Alexa Bliss and her husband Ryan Cabrera were married in April of 2022, and in May of 2023, they announced that they were expecting their first child together. The baby is due in December, and according to the social media announcement, the pregnancy was “completely unexpected.”

Bliss has been keeping fans updated as she said goodbye to her abs and said hello to a baby bump, and she and her husband recently revealed that they’re expecting a little girl with a rockstar-themed gender reveal.

Speaking to The Messenger, Bliss opened up about her pregnancy experience and praised her husband for supporting her as her body changes.

“I mostly just complain to Ryan. And Ryan complains with me, I’ll jokingly be like, ‘Oh my gosh, this doesn’t fit anymore! He’s been so great and understanding with everything and all my hormone changes and my body changes and it is tough.”

Bliss also spoke about giving in to pregnancy cravings, admitting that it’s tough to eat healthy.

“I also could be eating a lot healthier. But I do get into the cravings. My mom even said, she’s like, ‘Lexi, you don’t have to get into every single craving,’ but I do.”

Ryan Cabrera added that his wife is eating a lot of Mac & Cheese.

Alexa Bliss then spoke about taking time away from WWE during her pregnancy, saying that time away is helpful when it comes to reinvigorating her onscreen character.

“Time away is always a good thing. When it comes to WWE, time away and reinventing a character and evolving yourself is the key to career longevity at WWE. So I always say, ‘Time away is such a good thing because it gives people the time to miss you.'”

Bliss added that she’s always trying to move forward with her character presentation, constantly evolving into different versions of herself.

“When you’re being seen on WWE three or four times an episode, you don’t really have anywhere to go with your character. So whenever you take time off, it’s always a good time to evolve and to keep going. And I’ve already been probably six or seven different versions of myself. And each time it’s done well with merchandise sales, with bookings and all that stuff. So I don’t really like to go backwards with my work. I always like to go forward.”

Finally, Bliss says she’s in no rush to return to WWE too soon after giving birth to her daughter, wanting to spend time with her baby in the first few formative months.

“I probably won’t bounce back as fast as I hope. I’m going to get to working out and doing all that stuff and get to where I need to be, you know, to have time. [I’ll have] the first fundamental months with the baby before thinking about trying to rush back to work.”
