Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate AKA ‘Cup Cake’ shared the joyous news on social media that she is pregnant and expecting a daughter later this year.
Happy New Year everyone! 2016 & 2017 were crazy years full of transitions for me but I’m so happy where I’m at now moving into 2018. I have many things to be grateful for but one stands out in particular, you see there’s this man who has brought joy and happiness into my life in a way I’ve never known before, Johnny thank you for that. I’m proud to announce we are expecting a beautiful baby girl. Now you can sit and speculate… or you can just be happy for us. I’d like to ask that everyone respect the fact that (like we have been) we would like to continue to live our private lives primarily out of the media. I won’t comment on specifics so just know that I am very happy, very excited and my life has never felt so complete. Thank you all for the continued support on this crazy journey we call life! #FollowYourHeart #mommytobe #daughter #cupcakeintheoven #love #HappyNewYear
Tate posted a group of pics that inserted an ultrasound and pictures of her celebrating with partner Johnny Nunez.
Cupcake has not fought since November of 2016 when she has unanimous decision loss to former TUF pupil Raquel Pennington and announced her retirement after this loss in the cage. She retired from professional competition with an 18-7 record.
Congratulations to Miesha Tate on such a joyous news.
