Former UFC fighter and WWE RAW Women’s Champion, Ronda Rousey, has announced on her YouTube channel she is expecting her first child with husband Travis Browne. This will be Browne’s third child since he has two children from his first marriage.

Rousey mentioned on her video she is already four months pregnant and there are a few clips from her ultrasound where they censor the baby’s gender, which will be announced soon. She has stated before in episodes from WWE’s show Total Divas that she has been wanting to be a mother for a long time, but her career in the wrestling business has been delaying the process.

Rousey and Browne met in 2015 and tied the knot in 2017.

There has been speculations that Rousey would be returning to wrestle for WWE, but with the pregnancy announcement can confirm that she will not be wrestling any time soon.

“I don’t know. When I feel like it. Eventually, when I feel like. I don’t know,” she said during an April 26 appearance on the “Table Talk” podcast, which is co-hosted by WWE Hall of Famer D-Von Dudley.

The last time Rousey appeared in a wrestling match was during the main event for Wrestlemania 35 in 2019 were she unsuccessfully defended the WWE RAW Women’s championship in a Triple Threat Match ‘Winner Take All’ against Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch, which Lynch won the match.

Rousey was also a former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, and earned an Olympic medal in juno for the Summer Olympics in 2008.
