Tay Melo has assured fans that her in-ring career isn’t over despite her recently-announced pregnancy.
It was during AEW Double or Nothing 2023 that Melo and her husband Sammy Guevara announced that they are expecting their first child.
Despite several examples of wrestling moms, some have speculated that becoming a parent will end Melo’s in-ring career.
Taking to her Instagram Story, Melo refuted the idea that her in-ring career is over. She said,
“Definitely not, I don’t understand why everybody thinks my career’s gonna be over because I’m gonna have a kid. I’m gonna be out the same amount as someone that has like an ACL injury or surgery. I don’t understand. But, well, it’s not over, I’m coming back as soon as I can.”
Tay was later asked how she feels about putting her wrestling career on hold for the time being. She said,
“I don’t feel bad at all. Being a mom was always a dream of mine and I think it’s the perfect timing. And I feel like it’s gonna motivate me so much more to come back better and stronger. Imagine, just imagine with me, having a little one cheering for you in the crowd and you [turning to Sammy Guevara] holding a belt?”
We here at eWN would like to continue sending the couple and the best as they prepare to become parents.
