Former UFC Champ Miesha Tate Announces She’s Expecting Birth of Baby Daughter

By Tristen Critchfield Jan 2, 2018


Former Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight queen Miesha Tate is expecting the birth of her first child sometime in 2018.

Tate announced her pregnancy via Instagram, revealing that she will be having a girl. “Cupcake” posted a collage of pictures that included an ultrasound as well as her with partner Jonathan Nunez, who competed on Season 22 of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

“I’m proud to announce we are expecting a beautiful baby girl,” Tate wrote. “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.”

Tate last appeared at UFC 205 in November 2016, where she lost a unanimous decision to Raquel Pennington at Madison Square Garden in New York. She announced her retirement following the defeat. Tate captured 135-pound titles in both the UFC and Strikeforce and compiled an 18-7 mark over the course of her MMA career.

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
