Former WWE Superstars Expecting Their First Child Together

Former WWE Stars Cassie Lee and Shawn Spears started dating around 7 years ago and they tied the knot in August of 2019. Spears initially signed with the WWE in 2006 and competed in Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) and Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) as well as on the WWE's ECW until he was released from the company in 2009. After being released from WWE in 2009, Spears made his return to the independent circuit before rejoining the WWE in 2013, where he would be a part of the NXT brand. Shortly after he left the WWE, Spears signed with AEW in May 2019. Spears is currently running the Flatbacks Wrestling school in Florida with Matthew Clement (Tyler Breeze), while still being under contract to AEW.

Cassie Lee signed a developmental contract with the WWE in April 2015, alongside her longtime partner Jessica McKay and together formed a tag team known as The IIconics. They won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles at WWE WrestleMania 35, but were split up in the 2020 WWE Draft. They were eventually released from their WWE contracts in April 2021 and signed with IMPACT Wrestling in October 2021, where it was announced that they will now be known as The IInspiration. Lee and McKay then made their IMPACT debut at the Bound For Glory PPV last October and won the IMPACT Knockouts World Tag Team Championship from Havok and Rosemary, but would announce their retirement from in-ring action and exit from IMPACT last April.

AEW Star Shawn Spears and Cassie Lee recently announced on social media that they are expecting their first child together. Lee posted a video of her pregnancy reveal and the reaction of Spears, with the ultrasound as well as the caption, “Can’t wait to meet you [baby bottle emoji] [pregnant woman emoji] [hatching chick emoji] [heart emoji]”

The couple received congratulatory messages from numerous wrestling stars, including Big E, Gail Kim, Bayley, WWE Hall of Famer Brie Bella, Natalya, Tay Conti, Becky Lynch, WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan, Grayson Waller and Jessica McKay, among others.
