AEW's Cody Rhodes, Brandi Rhodes announce birth of first child, a baby girl

June 18 (UPI) -- Rhodes and Brandi Rhodes of AEW announced the birth of their first child together on Friday, a baby girl.



"6lbs 12oz - Liberty Iris Runnels - Mother & Daughter are doing wonderful," Cody Rhodes said alongside a photo on Instagram of he and his wife holding Liberty's hand.

"Happy Birthday Liberty Iris. We are so in love with you, sweet beautiful girl. We are so fortunate and blessed to be your mom and dad," Brandi Rhodes said on her Instagram account alongside the same photo.

"Couldn't be any happy for you & Brandi & Liberty love her name," professional wrestling legend Diamond Dallas Page commented on Cody Rhodes' post.

"The best. Congrats," fellow AEW star Brian Cage added.

Cody and Brandi Rhodes announced that they were expecting their first child together during a special, holiday-themed segment that aired on AEW Dynamite in December.

The segment featured the married couple decorating their Christmas tree before hearing a knock on the door. At the door was a gift box that contained an ornament that said they were expecting a baby in 2021.

The duo then announced the baby's gender on AEW Dynamite in February. Pink fireworks erupted at Daily's Place in Jacksonville, Fla., as Cody and Brandi Rhodes celebrated together on the entrance ramp.


Cody Rhodes will be facing his rival QT Marshall in a South Beach Strap Match on July 7 at AEW Dynamite: Road Rager. The event kicks off AEW's new touring schedule as they hit the road again with live fans following the COVID-19 pandemic.
