In some heartbreaking news, WWE superstar Becky Lynch's father has sadly passed away as revealed by the 34-year-old wrestler in a touching Instagram post. While Becky didn't reveal the cause of death, the former Raw Women's Champion instead gave a befitting tribute to a man she sorely adored; by sharing some memories in the form of heartwarming snaps from her childhood up until the present along with a moving caption detailing how precious her father was.

"My Dad passed away this morning. My god was he a great Dad. My brother and I never had a seconds doubt that he loved us unconditionally. He was proud of us no matter what. Not for what we did, but for who we were. The rest was just details for my pops," Becky began her tribute and added, "I used to always go to him with the most trivial of problems or concerns because I knew he would never judge. In my weird teenage years, he never batted an eyelid. "She's just being herself" - he'd say, and would let me get back to my strange clothes and dog collar chokers."

Recalling how supportive her dad was about her wrestling career from the beginning, Lynch wrote, "When I told him I wanted to be a wrestler he never doubted me for a second even though I did. And when I would worry about taking risks he'd tell me "it's an adventure Missy, enjoy it"- how right he was." Touching upon her dad's characteristics that set him apart from other fathers, Becky proudly penned, "My Dad was a character, a gent, an athlete, an intellectual and a creator. He was always full of positivity and ready to have the chats with anyone he crossed paths with, making friends at every turn. Such a charmer he was with his unmistakable, slightly regal voice and love of story telling. I was so proud to tell everyone "my dads an inventor"- none of my other friends dads invented s**t. But mine did."

"I mustn't have been more than 7 when he told me to keep a diary and I’ve been journaling ever since. He cultivated my love of books, writing, theatre, movies, life," Lynch added.

Unfortunately, Becky's dad was unable to meet his granddaughter, which Lynch is remorseful about. Becky and fiance Seth Rollins welcomed their first child, a baby girl who they named Roux, in December 2020. Sharing her hopes of wanting to imbibe her dad's qualities as a parent to her own daughter, Lynch penned, "I wish so much that I was able to be there. I wish that he would have met his baby granddaughter. He would have gotten a great kick out of her and she would have adored him. "She's a great laugh"- as he would say. Though I know he was so happy to have lived to know she's alive. I hope I can approach parenting the same way my Dad did with us."

"Slan agus Gra. Lots of love and magic. I love you forever and miss you Pops. Becks," Becky signed off.
