Ronda Rousey has announced the birth of her first child with husband Travis Browne by sharing two adorable snaps with her 14 million followers on Instagram.

The former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion and WWE Raw Women's Champion has stepped away from those bright lights in recent months as she prepared for the birth of her first child.

Spending time both streaming and caring for animals on their farm, Rousey shared two snaps that confirm the birth of La’akea Makalapuaokalanipo Browne on Monday, alongside the caption: "I can't hide it anymore. So, it's time to show it off."

The name goes back to the Hawaiian routes of husband Browne, who enjoyed success of his own in an MMA career that lasted 26 fights between 2009 and 2017.

Having been an accomplished star in judo and winning bronze at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing for the United States, ‘Rowdy’ earned huge fame during her UFC days.

Now 34, Rousey defended her Bantamweight belt on six separate occasions before defeats to Holly Holm and current double champ Amanda Nunes.

The couple have been dating for six years, and said back in April that there was “much more” to their story when announcing the pregnancy.

Rousey dubbed her unborn child at the time the "the baddest baby on the planet” and added on Instagram: “It’s been quite a journey to get to this point.

"And we’re so excited to share with you all that Mr Browne and I are expecting the baddest baby on the planet Sept 22nd.

“There’s too much to tell in just one post, but for now here is a little recap of what we’ve been up to the last 4 months.”
