Stephanie McMahon started working for her father’s promotion as an on-screen character in her early 20s. During her time in the company, she has worked with several male talents but she wasn’t allowed to date them.
Talking on the Howard Stern show in 2002, Stephanie revealed that her father didn’t allow her to get into romantic relationships with any of his talents. She initially followed her father’s orders but things changed after an on-screen romance storyline with Triple H became serious.
During their McMahon-Helmsley storyline in the early 2000s, Triple H started flirting with the Billion Dollar Princess. Stephanie in the interview with Howard Stern revealed that she was already in another relationship while the on-screen romance storyline was happening. Triple H would drop hints and start hitting on her and this led to her falling in love with the WWE legend.

“He would drop hints and I sort of wondered like is he hitting on me and then I thought no he can’t be (…) Well, our storyline was that we were married and we took over the business and drove my dad out. And so like I would be sitting on his lap and things like that and he’d just say things.”
“One time when I was standing around the ring, he sort of crawled around me, he was on the floor and he felt my leg. And I was like that’s definitely flirtation. That’s not [part of the script]. (…) It was a very touchy situation,” she said. (h/t: Sportskeeda)

#HappyFathersDay @tripleh Thank you for always having a shoulder to cry on, for always listening, for teaching them how to overcome their fears, and for wrapping your big arms around them when they need it most. I couldn’t ask for a better father to my children. ❤️❤️❤️ #grateful pic.twitter.com/hCCQ3FLeaL— Stephanie McMahon (@StephMcMahon) June 21, 2020
Stephanie in an interview in the past revealed that her eldest daughter Aurora once told her that she wants to be a boss like her grandfather Vince McMahon. Stephanie also revealed that Aurora has already started training in the ring. It’ll be interesting to see if the wrestling “Power Couple’s” daughters will follow in the footsteps of their family members and enter the world of sports entertainment.
