Congratulations, Randy Orton and Samantha Orton! This is great news.

I’ve been a fan of Randy Orton since his debute in professional wrestling on WWE.


Pregnancy news is a wonderful way to close off the year of 2007 and welcome the year of 2008.

I love him he is so sexy. I am so happy for samantha and him. FYI Samantha is sitting right next to him in that picture, just to let you know. I think that this is a really happy time for him, he got married to Samantha then won the WWE Championship title then he finds out he and Samantha are expecting. Congratulations Randy and Samantha Orton. And I truly wish the best to both of you and your unborn baby. May god be with you.

Well I have to say I am a little jealous, well i am very jealous i mean who isn’t, that randy orton is like the cutest superstar in the wwe, he makes my heart melt. And now i might sound so pathetic but my heart is now broken. I know that i have never known him or even talked to him before but there is something about him that just makes me want to get to know or talked to him so bad. I hate that im the only one thats not happy about this but im speaking from my heart. But i hope he is happy. This is to you Randy Orton. I hope your happy.
A.K.A Jenice (future WWE womens champion) you can count on it.

They’re expecting a girl. He said this during an interview with the baltimore sun
“It’s definitely changed me,” he says of starting a family. “I have a wonderful wife that wouldn’t hurt a fly, and I think a lot of that has rubbed off on me. I can’t wait to be a dad, and the fact that I’m going to have a little girl – I jumped through the roof when we were at the doctor’s office and he said that we were going to have a daughter.”

ben on

mishal on

wow!!that is so good!i am extremely happy for them! good luck randy…i love you!

stephenie on

I’m happy for him.

SJ on

Sorry to learn that any Randy Orton “fan/s” are supposedly joyus for ruining the lives of others and basically making things more difficult for everyone.

I hate this. You know why?? Just so you know, life….it’s not fair or always great or right. Randy Orton is single. He’s not married to Samantha Speno unless he tells me and other people who ask to their faces, face to face….that he is actually married to her….same goes for John Cena supposedly being “engaged/married” to Liz or Mickie James or whatever. Your comments, lies and rumors being spread by you under different usernames it’s wrong but no one does anything to stop it.
Even if they both were to ask you to respect them and shut the f**k up you’d still run your mouth with telling others things that may or may not actually be true about them.

Erika on

I never knew he was married I think it is just publicity just for the biussness cuz I seen a picture of her and she was UGLY! Uglier than ron jeremy! WOW that’s ugly
