Lacey Evans has revealed she spoke with WWE management about the best time to try for a second child before becoming pregnant.
Evans announced on the 15 February episode of Raw that she was expecting another baby, something that was quickly confirmed as a legitimate development and not a part of the storyline between herself, Ric Flair and Charlotte.
The Sassy Southern Belle has now spoken of how she asked WWE how the production worked in terms of her wanting to have another child, something the company were immensely supportive of.
Speaking on The Bellas Podcast, she said: "I had a good run with Becky Lynch and got to do amazing things with Bayley and Sasha [Banks] and Saudi Arabia [with Natalya]. All of a sudden, it came to where I wasn’t being used and I was backstage, which I don’t mind because I come from nothing. I have a good job, I’m being able to pay my bills, and I’m very blessed. I’ll sit and eat steak and shrimp at catering, no problem.
"I wondered: 'How does it work to be a woman in WWE when it comes to pregnancy?' I knock on the door and said: 'When is a good time? I’m not being used and I’ve always wanted to be a mom [again].'
"I knew for fact that I could have the baby, come back, and kick ass. I went to WWE and asked, 'How does it work to be a woman in WWE and wanting to extend their family?' They were so supportive of even the thought of extending my family."
After a couple of months, Vince McMahon pitched a the storyline to Evans involving the Flair father-daughter combo and, having not been successful in conception, Evans agreed.
However, just a few weeks into the developing angle, Evans would find out that she and husband Alfonso would become parents for the second time.
She continued: "For a couple of months, I tried. All of a sudden, Vince has this idea with the storyline and I was like, 'Alight, everything has been negative, sir, I’ll get back in the game.'
"Sure enough, Sunday at 8:15, it was positive. One week to the day of Elimination Chamber. I was thinking: 'Ugh, this is great, but, dammit.' You feel guilty because there are so many people working on these storylines. From the writers to Charlotte to Ric and I’m just, 'damn'.
"What can you do? It took me from 8:15 to 8:40 on how to inform the powers that be."
