Ronda Rousey welcomes daughter with husband Travis Browne

Ronda Rousey has entered the motherhood ring.

The 34-year-old UFC legend revealed the birth of her daughter, La'akea Makalapuaokalanipō Browne, with an Instagram post on Monday:

La'akea is her first child with her husband, fellow MMA fighter Travis Browne. The 39-year-old also shares two sons, Kaleo and Keawe Browne, with ex-wife Erin Browne.

Browne and Rousey announced her pregnancy in late April:

That was followed by a Pokémon-themed gender reveal posted to Rousey's YouTube channel in late June:

The couple married in Browne's native Hawaii in August 2017.

Professionally speaking, Rousey hasn't fought since UFC 207 in December 2016 and ended her subsequent stint in WWE sometime in 2020.

Browne's last logged UFC fight came in July 2017.

"There's not a day that goes by that people aren't telling me to fight," Rousey told Steve-O during a video on her YouTube page from January 2020 (h/t USA Today). "I have to try and think of it as, 'Would I rather be the greatest of all time, or have everybody think I'm the greatest of all time?' It used to be so important to me to have both. But now it's got to the point where I don't want to sacrifice myself and my family to prove that anymore to a bunch of people that don't give a (expletive) about me."

"I know, and the people who love me know (what I've accomplished)," she added. "It's no longer a priority in my life."
