"I've been thinking long and hard about how we wanted to announce this special news," The Miz told the audience. "We thought about it long and hard, and we thought there's no better place to announce it than the first place that we met. That is here in the WWE, in front of all of you."

"Without further ado, my wife Maryse and I... go ahead, babe," he prompted before Maryse exclaimed, "We're having a baby!"

Fellow WWE wrestlers Eva Marie, Renee Young and Charlotte Flair were among those to offer their congratulations online.
