After marrying businessman Jared Pobre on March 9 in Mexico, former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler has announced that she and her new husband are expecting a child, according to Elizabeth Leonard of People.com.     

Keibler made the formal announcement of her pregnancy via her Twitter and Instagram accounts:

The couple told People.com, “More blessings!! We’re an elated family-to-be!” Kiebler’s husband stated in the same report, “I’m extremely excited about starting a family and building a future with Stacy.”

Pobre, a 39-year-old CEO for a private interactive firm, and Keibler, a 34-year-old former wrestler turned actress, married in Punta Mita, Mexico, earlier this month in a private ceremony of their closest friends and family.

This will be the first child for the couple.

Keibler, who previously dated George Clooney, was a huge star in wrestling for many years before leaving the industry to continue her career as an actress. She started in WCW as Miss Hancock, but really made her mark on the industry after coming over to the WWE.

Wrestling under her real name, Keibler found success as a manager and as a wrestler, waging wars against Trish Stratus, Victoria and many other top female stars.

With several marquee storylines during her career—including working with Test and Scott Steiner—Keibler cemented her legacy as one of the most recognizable women in wrestling history.

After years of fighting in the ring, she now will prepare herself for this next challenge of being a mother. We wish Keibler and her family the best, and knowing how determined she was in her professional career, there's no doubt she'll be a star in this next stage of her life.
