“I love being a mom! I have an 8 year old beautiful son named Leo Wolf, boys rule btw and he’s the light of my life! We wrestle, I do my Russian wrestler accent and body slam little mouse on bed! Leo made life better and being his momma is a gift!”
The Inked Magazine site additionally listed a grand prize of $25,000 for the next cover girl. Russo noted what she would’ve used the winning money for.
“I would use the money to build a foundation to reconnect with my son. I went through a grueling custody battle and I am still recovering. The money would help bring the stability in life to reunite us.”
Russo dated Gagnon on VH1’s “The X-Life,” a reality television series that profiles several big names in the extreme sports business and their significant others.
The reality star was featured among three other couples on the show, including BMX jumper Cory Nastazio and freestyle motocrosser Jeremy Stenburg with their partners at the time.
Russo often showed off her body tattoos on her social media page, along with her son Leo Wolf.
