Mike “The Miz” Mizanin is embracing life as a new dad! The WWE Superstar welcomed his first child, Monroe Sky Mizanin, with wife Maryse on March 27, and his life has changed for the better!
“I’m at her service no matter what. I’ve never had anyone have so much control over me,” Miz, 37, tells Us Weekly.
The new parents have a ton on their plate! In addition to caring for a newborn, they’re constantly traveling for WWE (he’s on the road 200 days a year), he just finished filming The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars, and they’re filming a docuseries, Miz and Mrs. Luckily, he and Maryse, 35, make quite the “tag team,” especially when it comes to their sleeping schedule.
“I’m a night owl so I usually stay up at night with her and my wife sleeps. Then whenever I sleep, my wife takes over. Literally, we’re just tagging in and out,” he tells Us about caring for Monroe Sky. “I wanted to be the dad that was able to feed my daughter, hold my daughter, really be there for my daughter. I want to be the dad that’s here. I want to see her. Every day, her face changes, her body changes, everything about her is just changing every single day. It’s crazy.”
He’s already faced some moments with his daughter that he never saw coming. “I’ll never forget the first time she projectile pooped on me,” he says. “They tell you to hold her legs when you change her. When you bring the legs back, I didn’t realize that it pushes against her stomach, and then … right at me. All up on in there.”
Most of the craziness will be documented on their upcoming series. Miz even filmed the birth on his phone, The Real World alum tells Us. “When I went in, it was funny. As soon as we started, I had my phone out, I put it right up in everything,” he says. “The doctors were like, ‘Sir, please don’t drop your phone … Sir, can you sit down?’ I’m like, ‘No, but can you move over a little bit? You’re ruining my shot.’”
On top of work, the family of three is also in the middle of moving from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas, as the couple agrees it’s the perfect place to raise a family. Monroe Sky is such a great baby – “the dream baby,” as he puts it – the couple is already thinking about having another. “Oh yeah,” he says about expanding the family. “Monroe has been the ultimate … the best baby that I’ve ever seen in my entire life.”
