Jon Moxley announced tonight on AEW Dynamite that his wife, Renee Young, is expecting a child.
Moxley was cutting a promo backstage on his upcoming December 2nd bout against Kenny Omega, where he described his hectic schedule. The AEW World Champion attributed advice he received from his father, who always told him that they were the “good guys,” to how he is able to navigate through all his responsibilities. Within all that, he briefly mentioned that his wife is pregnant.
“And now the whole world is bearing down on me,” Moxley said. “My body feels like hell, I can’t even get out of bed in the morning. I have a pregnant wife at home. I’m holding two titles on two different continents. I got challengers coming from every which way, what do I do? I know what to do. We’re the good guys.”
As Tony Schiavone noted on commentary, Moxley just about buried the lead when it came to the exciting news, but given the quiet nature of his and Young’s marriage, it is not out of the ordinary.
This will be Moxley and Young’s first child together. The couple first met in WWE, and were quietly married in 2017. The two have since moved on from the company, where Moxley has found success in AEW while Young, now going by her real name of Renee Paquette, just announced the launch of her new podcast.
