It is going to be sometime before UFC fans see Arianny Celeste performing her duties during UFC events because the longtime Octagon Girl has announced that she is pregnant with her first child.
Celeste revealed the news on Instagram:
Dear Baby, I’ve been waiting for this moment my entire life! I promise to teach you about the beauty of the world and to love with no restrictions or division. In turn, you have already taught me so much about kindness, empathy, and faith. Through all of this chaos, you have helped me to stay strong and grounded. You are already lsoooo loved much!! I can’t wait to meet you my baby! Love, Mommy - For More details link in Bio. ------
The longtime Octagon Girl also revealed to US Weekly that it was her mom that first thought that she may be with child.
“My mom for some reason asked me to take a pregnancy test,” Celeste said. “[Moms] always seem to know. I went to the store and got two tests and sure enough, I was pregnant. I couldn’t wait, so I called my boyfriend immediately even though he was working at the time.”
There is no word yet on when Celeste could return to the UFC, but her baby is due on September 28.
