Fans of MTV’s The Real World and The Challenge are well aware of Cory Wharton’s reputation as a ladies man after his season of Real World: Ex-Plosion and three seasons of The Challenge, but it doesn’t mean everyone wasn’t shocked with his most recent revelation.

On Saturday, December 16, Wharton took to his Instagram to reveal that he and his Challenge: Rivals III costar Cheyenne Floyd are parents to a 9-month-old daughter, Ryder. “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,” he captioned a photo of himself, Cheyenne and their daughter.

He continued, “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,” he continued. “I can’t wait to watch you grow up and be there for you every step of the way, love you Moochie!!!”

While Floyd has been very open about her pregnancy and has shared her motherhood journey on social media, she never mentioned her daughter’s father and fans are stunned to find out it is Cory. Those who watched The Challenge: Rivals III saw Cory pursuing Cheyenne but she continuously rebuffed him.

Despite only revealing Cory as the father of her daughter now, she had high praise for him. “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” with a heart emoji.
