Ronda Rousey Discusses Putting WWE Career On Hold To Have A Baby

Many female WWE Superstars are having children these days. From Brie Bella to Maryse Mizanin and Maria Kanellis, it appears that the next generation of potential Superstars is slowly but surely growing. With other former Superstars having started families on their own after their WWE careers ended, that next generation may be spectacular!

But the decision to have a baby while wrestling is a big one. There's so much time you have to take off between the pregnancy itself, and then however long recovery and getting back into shape takes after giving birth. All of that is something you have to be mindful of- and WWE Superstar and former UFC Champion Ronda Rousey is, as she seems to struggle with when to have a baby with husband Travis Browne.

On this past week's season premiere of Total Divas, Rousey talked about wanting to start a family of her own with Browne. While she's already a step-mom to his sons from a previous relationship, the couple has yet to have a child of their own. Rousey did admit that she loves being a step-mom, and says that her step-children are fantastic.

But Rousey also admitted to feeling the pressure to get pregnant from all angles. It's not just her followers and gossip sites asking; Rousey even revealed that whenever her own mother calls anymore, the subject of pregnancy always comes up first. While she's admitted that she, "loves Travis Browne and [she wants] his babies," she admits to struggling with wanting a baby with continuing her WWE career. Rousey was the WWE Raw Women's Champion at the time, which only added more stress to the situation.

"At what point am I being selfish?" she remarked in an interview, as well as on Total Divas.

In that same interview though, Rousey said that, should she choose to focus more on having a baby than wrestling, she doesn't know how it'll affect her until after it happens.

"As for WWE plans in the future, we want to have a baby first," she added. "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."

Whatever Rousey and Browne end up doing, we're sure that they'll end up making the right decision. Whether they start a family soon or in a few years from now, they'll certainly make excellent parents, too!
