Ronda Rousey, Travis Browne

Ronda Rousey and her husband, Travis Browne, have welcomed a daughter into the world. The couple posted a picture on Instagram to celebrate.

The pair announced the pregnancy back in April of this year and revealed that Ronda Rousey was already four months pregnant. They followed that up with a gender-reveal party two months later that was Pokemon-themed.

The name of the baby was quite surprising as it is very unusual and obviously inspired by Travis Browne’s Hawaiin background. Browne was born and raised in Hawaii.

Ronda Rousey revealed the name on Instagram, La’akea Makalapuaokalanipō Browne. It drew quite the surprise and memes from the MMA community.
