WWE Superstars Carmella and Corey Graves Announce Pregnancy
The couple welcomes some overdue good news after years of heartache!
For weeks, the WWE Universe has been wondering where Carmella has been – as it turns out, she has the best excuse for her absence:
WWE Superstars Carmella and Corey Graves Reveal Huge News
In an exclusive announcement to Good Morning America on Monday, WWE Superstars Carmella and real-life husband Corey Graves revealed their dreams of being parents would finally come true. Carmella confessed that they've been sitting on the news since they found out in March, and unsurprisingly, she credits her positive mindset.
"It's just all been such a whirlwind," she told GMA. "I think because of my past, it was hard to get excited off the bat about this one, but I was cautiously optimistic. I try to have a good mindset, a positive mindset this time around, and it's working. So I'm very happy about that."
The WWE Universe knows Carmella has recently had her fair share of heartbreak outside the ring. After experiencing an ectopic pregnancy last year, Carmella and Corey have had to battle adversity – and conflicting emotions – as they kept up the grieving process while simultaneously staying optimistic that they can one day welcome a child into the world together. We're happy that their undying optimism paid off – and it couldn't have happened to a better couple!
After initially being skeptical about her pregnancy test results, Carmella reports that she and Corey have been able to breathe sighs of relief.
"But the fact that I'm here, I'm on the other side of it, I'm almost out of the first trimester at this point – it's been quite a journey," she said.
Of course, as any expecting couple knows, being pregnant isn't smooth sailing. Carmella confessed that being pregnant hasn't been easy, but she's maintaining a positive attitude.
"I've been nauseous, I've been so tired – more tired than I've ever been in my life," she admitted. "But I've never been so happy to feel so awful. I've been great, I mean mentally. It's kind of this weird space where I'm excited, but also just a little apprehensive because of the miscarriages. It's unfortunate that it robs you of the true excitement that should be there."
Carmella Has Overcome the Odds Outside WWE
Outside the ring, Carmella has been through so much – her dream of becoming a mother is inspiring to the WWE Universe and anyone who aspires to bring a child into the world. Carmella proves that although life can often throw curveballs, it's essential to never lose sight of your dreams. Although she may feel that she's been robbed of some of the excitement of being pregnant, we're sure those feelings will evaporate later this year when she and Corey welcome the youngest member of the WWE Universe into the family.
On a lighter note, the WWE Universe will be happy that Carmella reports her cravings are predictably out of control! She's addicted to carbs, including pasta, pizza, and mashed potatoes.
"And, actually, I'm craving cucumbers a lot," she added.
With the baby expected in November, Carmella has plenty of time to work some more vegetables into her diet – but if she sticks with an all-carb lifestyle, nobody will blame her. After all, she's earned it. We can't wait to see those baby pictures later this year!
