Ronda Rousey Taking Some Time Off From WWE To Start A Family
It has been a while since former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey wanting to start a family and a source close to ‘Rowdy’ confirms with ESPN that she is taking a long hiatus from WWE to have a baby with husband a former UFC heavyweight contender Travis Browne.
On Monday Rousey posted a pic on Instagram that further fueled the rumors which captions “#impregnationvacation.”
Even Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer reported in January that Rousey was looking to wrapping up her WWE career at WrestleMania and that she “very much wants to start a family soon.”
Regardless of she’s taking an extended break or not, she’ll be on a shelf for a while as Rousey is heading for surgery to repair her broken hand on Tuesday as per Fightful. ‘Rowdy’ suffered that injury during her Triple Threat main event match against Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 35 where she lost her RAW women’s championship as well.
Earlier this year in her interview with ESPN, Rousey expressed her aspirations to have children.
“I’ve not kept it a secret that I would definitely want to start a family,” Rousey said. “But how do you go about doing that? I love this way more than I thought that I would. So do you just keep going until you just happen to get pregnant? Or should you stop and go try and get pregnant? Or is going and trying to get pregnant putting yourself on the spot and then you’re less likely to get pregnant? I’ve never had a baby before, I don’t know these kinds of things.
“It would be kind of cool to just keep acting and then one day, ‘Hey, surprise twist, I’m pregnant.’ That would be fun. There’s a lot of things up in the air. A lot of decisions that we’ve gotta make as a family. I’m trying to figure it out as I go along.”
Ronda joined the WWE back in January 2018, and in April she made her debut at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans.
