Challenge parents: cory wharton and cheyenne floyd reveal they share a daughter

Challenge players Cory Wharton and Cheyenne Floyd shared some big news this past weekend: The Rivals 3 alums are parents to a daughter!

“I’ve been off of social media for a while now… for many reasons,” the Battle of the Bloodlines and Invasion of the Champions finalist captioned the family image above with Cheyenne and Ryder. “Most importantly God has given me the biggest blessing in my life, my daughter Ryder K Wharton. I want to say thank you Cheyenne for being such an amazing mother. I look forward to co-parenting with you and giving Ryder all the love in the world. I can’t wait to watch you grow up and be there for you every step of the way, love you Moochie !!!”

1/2 of Team Princess, who welcomed her mini-me in April, shared the same photograph with her little clan and added, “Cory is nothing short of an amazing father. We are so blessed to be raising mooch as co parents together and I couldn’t have asked for a better father for my princess. Our daughter is the best of both of us.”
