Back in April of last year, Cassie Lee (Fka WWE’s Peyton Royce) announced that she would indefinitely give up in-ring action. A few months later, Lee and Shawn Spears announced that she was pregnant. Spears has largely moved away from AEW since then, dealing with more important matters in his personal life than anything he ever would have done in professional wrestling.
It turns out the big day arrived earlier this week, nearly nine months after Cassie announced her indefinite leave of absence from the ring. Spears sent out the following tweet a while back, introducing her baby Austin Gaye to the world:
We don’t really know any other details at the moment, but it seems safe to assume that everyone involved is happy and well.
On behalf of all the Cageside Seats staff, please join us in sending congratulations to Mom, Dad, and the rest of the family!
