Former WWE superstar Billie Kay, whose real name is Jessica McKay, has exciting news to share with her fans. In an emotional Instagram post, McKay revealed that she is expecting her first child. While her former tag team partner Cassie Lee (formerly known as Peyton Royce) is set to return to the wrestling world after giving birth, McKay will be taking some time away from the squared circle to focus on her pregnancy journey.
Accompanied by a heartwarming sonogram photo, McKay announced that she would give birth in December, expressing her anticipation and love for her upcoming bundle of joy in the video's caption. This news comes after a relatively quiet year for McKay, who has primarily stayed away from the wrestling scene, with only a few convention appearances to keep her connected with the fans.
The decision to step back from in-ring action was initially made by McKay and Lee, collectively known as The IIconics, shortly after losing the Impact Knockouts Tag Team Championships at the Sacrifice pay-per-view in 2022.
While McKay's absence from the wrestling world has been noticeable, she has been focusing on personal endeavors and enjoying some well-deserved time off.
Lee Embraces Motherhood; Wrestling Return on the Horizon
Interestingly, McKay's pregnancy announcement follows her former tag team partner's journey into motherhood.
Last August, Lee and her husband, AEW star Shawn Spears, shared the joyous news of their pregnancy. In January 2023, they welcomed their son, Austin Jay, into the world. Lee is scheduled to make her wrestling comeback in October of this year as she returns to her home country of Australia, where McKay also hails from.
As fans eagerly await updates on McKay's pregnancy, they can take comfort in knowing that she will embrace this new chapter in her life with the same enthusiasm and determination she displayed during her time in the WWE.
While her presence in the wrestling ring will be missed, her fans can join her in celebrating the joyous motherhood journey ahead.
