Speaking to GiveMeSport at the UK press junket yesterday, Lynch revealed that told Asuka she was pregnant backstage before the segment was taped.
Lynch revealed that she wasn't supposed to tell Asuka the news beforehand, which was likely a directive from higher-ups to make the latter's reaction more genuine:
I told her just before, it was a great reaction. She wasn't supposed to know. I wasn't supposed to tell her, but I really like Asuka so...
