WWE star Kia “Kharma” Stevens announced that she was pregnant last May with her first child, then on December 31, she reported that she had given birth to a baby boy. The three-time World Champion had actually told a lie. Stevens’ unborn child had actually died before it got a chance to enter this world and now she is apologizing for making the false statement, reports TMZ.
The 34-year-old, who has been in the wrestling game for nearly 10 years, revealed Wednesday she was so heartbroken over her loss that she felt compelled to lie to friends and family about her baby being born healthy.

Stevens actually announced her pregnancy news on live television. After breaking the joyous news of her pregnancy on such a public forum, Stevens felt that she just could not follow up that announcement up with the news that her child was stillborn.
Now that Stevens has had the time to heal emotionally, she is determined to help other women who have gone through what she did. Stevens tells TMZ:
“I am planning to start a foundation for women that have experienced the same thing,” Kia says, adding, “it’s a bigger club than people think.”
Stevens has certainly not wasted any time getting her life back in order. One month after giving birth, she was already back in the ring. Already in the works are planned scheduled events that center around raising awareness for her cause. Stevens says that information about her foundation will become available on her Twitter page in the near future.
