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 ? ?????

Tate broke up with Bryan Caraway and has remained quiet in terms of her private life since. She currently works for FOX Sports since retiring from MMA.

Tate, 31 years old, exited the sport following 2016 decision loss to Raquel Pennington. She captured the UFC title in 2016 when she submitted Holly Holm in the fifth round at UFC 196, dropping the title a few months later to current champion Amanda Nunes.

Nunez has appeared on two seasons of The Ultimate Fighter, along with competing for the World Series of Fighting. The 32-year-old is 6-1, but went 0-3 during his three fights on TUF.
