The advent of social media has brought wrestling fans closer to their favorite stars than ever. Wrestlers are able to share pieces of their personal lives that fans would otherwise never see. This includes family Christmas photos taken during the holiday season.

Not every glimpse into the day-to-day of pro wrestlers results in positivity. Tay Conti was recently a victim of bullying by fans after rumors about her personal life spun out of control. Wrestlers and other celebrities walk a fine line when sharing their personal affairs with fans.

Most of the time, things don’t turn so sour. One recent case is a family Christmas photo shared by Johnny Gargano. Adorned in festive holiday pajamas, Johnny Wrestling and his wife Candice LeRae posed with their beloved pooch in front of the tree.

Candice showed a noticeable baby bump in the photo. She is due to give birth to the couple’s child in February. It’s a time for major celebration for the duo.


Johnny noted in his farewell speech in NXT that the new arrival is a major reason for him to take time away from the squared circle. Fans immediately began to speculate on where he will wind up next. Gargano is focused on preparing for fatherhood.

Candice LeRae is still under contract with WWE. She has appeared on NXT 2.0 in non-physical roles throughout her pregnancy. Baby wrestling might be a couple months late, but Johnny and Candice seem to be enjoying a wholesome family Christmas while they wait for their new arrival. There’s no doubt that Johnny and Candice are going to be very cool parents.

Merry Christmas from The Wrestlings and everyone here at Ringside News!
