Kofi Kingston is a former WWE Champion and was WWE’s first African Champion. He was on the Danger Zone, where he spoke about expecting his first child. He talked about how he feels as the due date draws nearer. “I’ve been home obviously, with the pandemic and everything, and our schedule isn’t as vigorous as it’s been in the past.
So, I’m like, ‘Okay, now that I’m home maybe it will go by slower.’ Right, because I’m here more to see everything. And that’s not the case at all, like, I feel like it’s gone by even faster.
It felt twice as fast. Like, it’s crazy that we’re legit two weeks out and the whole dynamic of the house is about to change," he said.
Kofi Kingston On Expecting His First Child
“Yeah, I’m nervous about [having a girl], man,” he added.
“You know, being a girl dad and everything, I feel like they talk about selective attention, selective retention, and stuff you start noticing in the real world. And when I found out that we were having a girl, I’d go to the airports and I’d see, like, fathers with their daughters, and I’d be like, ‘Oh, that’s going to be me.’ Or like, some young daughter lipping off to their parents, ‘Oh no, that’s going to be me!’.
What am I going to do? What am I going to say, you know? So, I’m just super excited for this blessing in our lives”. Kofi Kingston then spoke about his relationship with the New Day members. He stated that they call him brother.
“Yeah, I think that all the matches and all the experience that you have, prepares you for what’s next. Whether you compare it by the inverse, like, ‘Oh, this is what I’m doing and this is what I don’t want to do.
Like, I loved working with Evan, and Punk, and R-Truth, and there’s no animosity. They’re just completely different. I think just having the experience and wrestling with Punk, like, everyone knows his wrestling mind.
I learned so much. With Truth as well, he’s been around for so long, and he’s such a chameleon. I think, like, he can make you laugh, and there was that one feud with Morrison where I was like, ‘Oh my God, this dude is scary.’ He can look at you and kind of flip the switch in a way he doesn’t get credit for.
He doesn’t get credit for, like, ‘Oh Truth, he’s funny.’ And he is, he’s probably the funniest person on the roster, but he can do so much."
