Ronda Rousey reveals she vowed to 'never cook for a man' before having a child

Earlier this week, Ronda Rousey and husband Travis Browne introduced the world to their first child together.

The WWE star gave birth to her baby girl La’akea Makalapuaokalanip┼Ź Browne – reportedly named in honour of Browne's Hawaiian ancestry.

But, despite both mother and father being completely loved up and welcoming their first child into the world, Rousey was never as family-orientated as she is now.

Prior to giving birth to baby La'akea, Rowdy was already fulfilling parenting duties as stepmother to Browne's two children from a previous marriage. 

This introduction to parenthood completely changed Rousey's outlook on life.

In an interview with E Online, the former MMA fighter admitted she thought there was "nobody out there for me", before she met her husband.

"And then it went from that, looking out for number one, to completely an entire family. It taught me how much joy I can get in not really thinking about myself," she continued.

"I swore on my life that I would never cook for a man, and Trav has completely changed my whole mind about everything. He did that not by ever asking me to cook, but for cooking for me for the first year-and-a-half we were together."

Rousey reportedly met Browne in 2013, before the couple went public with their relationship in 2015. Fast forward eight years and the WWE pair now have a family together after marrying in 2017.

Rousey became the first American woman ever to win an Olympic medal in judo – earning bronze at Beijing 2008 before starting her career as an MMA fighter.

Thanks to her impressive record of 12 wins out of 14, Rousey became the first female to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.

After making history as a mixed martial artist, Rowdy then took WWE by storm. She was one of the first women to headline a WrestleMania pay-per-view, and held the Raw Women's Championship title for 231 days.

Rousey is the only woman to win a UFC and WWE championship and was voted the best female athlete of all-time via an ESPN fan poll in 2015.
