Former UFC champion Ronda Rousey and former heavyweight Travis Browne announced the arrival of their first child on Monday.

Welcome to this world La’akea Makalapuaokalanipō Browne. You are so incredibly loved!

Niether Rousey nor Browne shared additional details about their daughter. Her date of birth is unknown.

Rousey (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) has not competed under the UFC banner since her 48-second knockout loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in December 2017. After helping usher women’s fighting into the sport’s biggest promotion, Rousey went on a run that helped her become one of the biggest stars in MMA history.

After suffering a pair of devastating losses to Nunes and Holly Holm to close her career, Rousey parted ways with active competition. She dabbled in acting and had a successful run in professional wrestling with WWE, but has since been absent from the limelight in her pursuit of starting a family.
