There is a new mom in town! Professional wrestler Ronda Rousey broke the news of her daughter’s arrival on social media.
In 2019, the “Mile 12” star left WWE to begin a family with mixed martial artist Travis Browne. This would be the first child of the couple.
In April, the pair broke the news of Rousey’s pregnancy to the world, and on June 29, the husband and wife uploaded a unique Pokemon-themed gender reveal video.
Introducing Her Newborn
The 34-year-old updated her Instagram followers with the happy news. In one of the two heartwarming slides, the baby’s hand rests on Rousey’s heart.
The second photograph featured her daughter’s closed fist resting on her husband’s chest.

The actress captioned the post with the name of the newborn, writing, “La’akea Makalapuaokalanipō Browne” with a heart emoji.
Rousey’s newest post was met with lots of love from fans and friends who showered congratulations and kind wishes on the mother and child.
The official WWE Instagram handle also commented, “Congratulations to you both!!!”. Titus Oneil said “Congratulations” with two heart emojis.
The two must be over the moon as they have been quite excited throughout the pregnancy period.
Her Baby’s First Sonogram
On April 21, The Blast revealed that Rousey, who was pregnant at the time, updated on her YouTube channel with a sweet post of her baby’s ultrasound and her OB/GYN appointments.
The six-time UFC champion started her announcement with, “I don’t know how to put this — pow, four months pregnant!” She further explained that she had been pregnant since January.
The “Fast And Furious 7” star said she wanted to share “a little bit” of the journey she had been on with her followers, and she would update them subsequently.
Rousey also revealed the road to her pregnancy “was quite a journey.”
Getting Hitched To Her Soulmate
In September 2017, The Blast reported that Rousey and Browne got married in an intimate ceremony on a Saturday morning in Hawaii.
On August 28, 2017, the 34-year-old tied the knot with her fiance while the rest of the world was carried away by the Mayweather-McGregor fight.
The couple updated their social media with beautiful photos of the private occasion.
The “Mile 22” star was dressed in a lacy, mermaid-shaped white gown, while Browne wore light-colored pants and a matching vest.
In one of the actress’s Instagram posts, she held hands with her husband, overlooking an ocean in Hawaii. The star captioned the post with, “Happiest day of my life.”
A second post featured a black and white photo zoomed in on the couple’s face as they shared a passionate kiss. The new bride captioned it, “The Love of my life.”
Also present at the wedding celebration were Rousey’s bridesmaids from her squad, which she referred to as “The Four Horsewomen of MMA.” The bridesmaids were fellow professional wrestlers Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, and Marina Shafir.
It is unclear if Rousey’s childbirth would encourage her to make a WWE comeback, but it is safe to say she is enjoying a fulfilled life as a new mom.
