Interesting. As for naming a worldline where having a child can/will strip one of powers, I'm thinking Thetis (mother of Achilles) might be the best option - she was destined to have a son who would surpass his father (hence why they married her off to a mortal before Zeus could get his hands on her), which kinda fits here.
