Cory Wharton from MTV’s “The Challenge” revealed over the weekend that he is the father of former castmate Cheyenne Floyd’s nine-month-old daughter. The reality-TV star has opened up about life as a new father and how he would feel about his first-born, Ryder K. Wharton, following in his footsteps.

In a new interview with Us Weekly, Wharton said he’d have no problem with Ryder competing on “The Challenge” when she becomes an adult. Wharton has been a mainstay on the show over the last two years, competing with the likes of Johnny Bananas and CT.

“By the time my daughter’s on ‘The Challenge,’ Johnny will still be there or be the host!” Wharton joked with Us Weekly.

Wharton got his start on reality-TV four years ago as a cast member of MTV’s “Real World: Ex-Plosion.” He wouldn’t have an issue with his daughter going on that show, either.

“I would shed a tear and be proud that I passed on these great genes,” Wharton said. “No but seriously, I’ll fully support her in whatever she wants to do.”

Wharton and Floyd, who first appeared on MTV’s “Are You The One?”, had Ryder after the two competed on “The Challenge: Rivals III,” which aired during the summer of 2016. That’s certainly not the only romance of Wharton’s that’s been sparked by the show. He’s become known for getting romantically involved with other cast members.

That, however, doesn’t mean Wharton is concerned that his daughter will see what he’s been up to on MTV.

“I fully stand behind my actions,” Wharton said. “I’m gonna be that dad to let my daughter mess up and be right there to pick her up right after she falls. I’m gonna let her mess up in life and sit there and teach her, ‘Let’s not make the same mistake twice, let’s learn from this mistake. Your dad wasn’t perfect — watch this clip!’ It’s me. It’s what I was doing in my life at the time. I’m not ashamed of it. I definitely will be showing her certain clips — I’m not going to say, ‘Watch all the clips!’”

Wharton was the first contestant eliminated from “The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars,” which is currently airing on MTV. He’ll compete on “The Challenge: Vendettas,” which premieres on Jan. 2.

While Wharton has begun to think about life after reality-TV, he does plan to continue competing on “The Challenge” in the near future.
