PITTSBURGH, March 9 (UPI) -- Rosa Mendes is planning her return to the WWE following daughter Jordan's birth.

The 36-year-old WWE Divas wrestler discussed her future with the organization with E! News after welcoming Jordan with fiancé Bobby Schubenski in February.

"I'm enjoying my time with Jordan," Mendes said. "Of course I can't wait to get back to work and to get in the ring and see everybody, but right now I really want to raise her and be a good mom ... Right now I just want to concentrate on her."

"We haven't really discussed when I'm coming back, because I'm the first pregnant Diva, so this has never happened before," she explained. "So WWE and I are kind of learning as we go here. So I'll be ready to get back to work whenever they need me."

Mendes and Schubenski got engaged in October and welcomed Jordan on Feb. 13. The WWE Diva recently revealed she will be cleared to return to the gym in late March and told E! she is "really, really looking forward" to resuming her intense workouts.

"My body's already been getting back to normal and I'm not even working out yet because I'm not cleared," the star said. "But I guess because I'm an athlete and I've been so healthy before, my body's just coming back into shape really, really quickly."

"I just want to thank everybody for their messages," she added. "I just really, really appreciate all of the love that I'm getting and the support and everyone just rooting for me and Bobby and Jordan. It's been awesome. I want to thank everyone for that."
