Is a baby in Ronda Rousey‘s future?

The WWE star seems to think so. In a new video posted to her YouTube page on Monday, Rousey, 32, sat down with her husband Travis Browne to discuss their plans to start a family. (Rousey and Browne tied the knot in 2017 during a ceremony in Hawaii.)

“We planned on, after WrestleMania, me and amazing husband here, would go off and start trying to start our family,” Rousey shared.

She added, laughing: “Me and my lovely husband are planning on vacationing around the world and very much enjoying ourselves until we are with child.”

“As for WWE plans in the future, we want to have a baby first,” Rousey said. “I don’t know what it’s like to have a baby. I could look down at this beautiful child and be like ‘F— everything, I don’t care about anything else other than this baby.’ And you’ll never see me again. Or, I could be like my mom [AnnMaria De Mars], who trained while she was eight months pregnant and then won the U.S. Open six weeks after giving birth. Which was unbelievable.”

She continued, “I don’t think I’m going to try and aspire to her level. But I’m just saying, you never know. I don’t want to make any promises about the future when I don’t know how I’m gonna feel in the future.”

Rousey made her WWE debut over a year ago after building her career in the UFC, and competed in WrestleMania 35 earlier this month, losing to Becky Lynch.

After WrestleMania 35, the athlete hinted that she was trying to start a family when she posted a picture of her and Browne kissing with the hashtag “#impregnationvacation.” ESPN also reported earlier this month that a source said Rousey is taking a hiatus from the WWE to try for a baby.

Back in January, journalist Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that Rousey was considering starting a family and planned to exit WWE after WrestleMania, though later reports said her departure was only going to be temporary.

That same month, ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne asked Rousey about the possibility of growing her family.

“I’ve not kept it a secret that I would definitely want to start a family,” Rousey told ESPN. “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?”

She continued, “I’ve never had a baby before, I don’t know these kinds of things.”RELATED: Ronda Rousey Tearfully Recalls Her Father’s Suicide: ‘He Was the Best’

“It would be kind of cool to just keep acting and then one day, ‘Hey, surprise twist, I’m pregnant.’ That would be fun,” Rousey said at the time. “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.”
