MTV’s next generation of reality stars is here.
Cory Wharton and Cheyenne Floyd of The Challenge have revealed that they share a child, a 9-month-old daughter named Ryder.
Both TV personalities, who appeared together on The Challenge: Rivals III in 2016, announced the news on their social media pages Saturday with a family photo.
“I’ve been off of social media for a while now… for many reasons. Most importantly God has given me the biggest blessing in my life, my daughter Ryder K Wharton,” wrote Wharton, 26. “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 !!!”
Floyd, 25, shared the same picture with the caption, “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.”
Floyd, who originally appeared on MTV’s Are You the One? Season 3, has openly documented her pregnancy and photos of her daughter on Instagram, announcing that she was expecting on her 24th birthday and giving birth in April. However, she never before spoke about who Ryder’s father was.
Wharton addressed fans in an Instagram Live session on Saturday, holding his daughter as she watched her favorite show, Baby Einstein, on TV.
“Thank you guys for being respectful and sending positive vibes our way. We appreciate it,” the Real World alum said. “I know you guys have a ton of questions. I’ll be answering all the questions, probably in a YouTube video. There’s a lot to talk about.”
Wharton has been known to be a player on the long-running MTV show, hooking up with several women from the series.
