PITTSBURGH, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Rosa Mendes and fiancé Bobby Schubenski welcomed their first child Saturday.

The 36-year-old WWE Divas wrestler announced she gave birth to daughter Jordan Elizabeth Schubenski in a statement to E! News the same day.

"The love we have for her is indescribable," the new mom gushed. "We want to thank our family and friends, and I especially want to thank my WWE family for supporting me from day one. I can't wait for all of you to meet her in person. She's so special."

"[Jordan] was the first name [Bobby] said and I've always loved that name for a girl!" she added. "So, we didn't even look up names or have any issues with finding a name. We just fell in love. He said the name, I loved it and that's how we picked her name."

Mendes shared the news and several photos of her baby girl on social media Sunday, writing, "The best day of my life!!! Welcome our daughter Jordan Schubenski #motherlylove" and "My everything!!! We love you so much!!!"

Mendes and Schubenski announced they were expecting in August and got engaged in October. The WWE Diva told Yahoo! Parenting in January she always wanted to be a mother but was previously focused on her wrestling career.

"I love children and I've always wanted kids, but I didn't know when I was going to be able to," she said. "I've been with [WWE] a long time, and have so many goals I want to achieve in the company, so I wasn't really preparing to have a child at the moment. But when it happened, I was very happy. I cried happy tears, and it was a beautiful feeling."
