Carmella's husband is WWE color commentator Corey Graves.

In February 2019, the four-time 24/7 champ found herself the subject of many vicious headlines — why is that?

Well, the ex-wife of former professional wrestler and current WWE color commentator Corey Graves (whose real name is Matt Polinsky) publicly accused Carmella of being a homewrecker. However, sources close to The Sportster revealed this was not the case. As it turns out, Corey and his ex-wife were separated and already in the divorce process.

In October 2021, Corey and Carmella announced their engagement (Corey popped the question on Carmella's birthday, how sweet). On April 7, 2022, the two exchanged vows in front of family and friends, including several WWE superstars like Natalya, Liv Morgan, Baron Corbin, and Bayley.

Regarding their wedding taking place just days after WrestleMania 38, Corey told TV Insider that there would be "no rest for the weary." He added that he was really "looking forward to getting on a plane to Hawaii for [their] honeymoon where [they could] actually decompress and enjoy and put [their phones] down for about six days."

Corey joined WWE in 2011 under a developmental contract. He wrestled on NXT for three years before sadly announcing his in-ring retirement on Dec. 11, 2014. Since then, he's been working as a color commentator on Monday Night Raw.

In October 2022, Carmella opened up about going through an ectopic pregnancy.

On Oct. 31, 2022, the former SmackDown Women's champion revealed she suffered an early miscarriage. She also opened up about going through an ectopic pregnancy.

"I’ve gone back and forth with myself about posting this because I’m not looking for any sort of sympathy, but since today is the last day of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month, I wanted to share my story," Carmella wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of herself in a hospital bed.

"I never thought something like this would happen to me, especially after suffering from an early miscarriage in September," she added. "Nothing can prepare you for this news after getting a positive pregnancy test. I was cautiously optimistic this time around after the early loss I had already experienced but was hoping for the best."

"I’m part of this statistic and it’s happening to me. ... I know I’ll eventually recover from all of this mentally, physically, and emotionally," Carmella concluded. "For anyone dealing with ANY type of pregnancy loss, I want you to know your feelings and emotions are valid, there is NOTHING wrong with you and you are not alone."

In May 2023, Carmella shared that she and her husband are having a baby!

On May 1, 2023, the WWE Superstar announced on Good Morning America that she was pregnant. "It's just all been such a whirlwind," she said. "I think because of my past, it was hard to get excited off the bat about this one, but I was cautiously optimistic. I try to have a good mindset, a positive mindset this time around, and it's working. So I'm very happy about that."

"I've been nauseous. I've been so tired, more tired than I've ever been in my life," she continued. "But I've never been so happy to feel so awful. I've been great, I mean mentally. It's kind of this weird space where I'm excited, but also just a little apprehensive because of the miscarriages. It's unfortunate that it robs you of the true excitement that should be there."

Carmella shared that she is due in November of 2023. Congratulations to the happy couple!
