A ring with some bling! Major congrats are in order for UFC fighter and actress Ronda Rousey, who just got engaged to Travis Browne, her boyfriend of two years and a fellow UFC fighter, this week.
Few details are known about the engagement at the moment, but from what we do know, it sounds like it was ultraromantic. According to TMZ Sports, Browne pop the question under a waterfall in New Zealand, revealing, "It felt like the right place to do it." Swoon.
"We're getting married," Rousey told the outlet while showing off her huge diamond sparkler. She admitted the wedding will be soon (how soon, exactly?!) but confessed she has "no idea what goes into wedding planning." UFC president Dana White is ecstatic about the upcoming nuptials, saying, "I’m very happy for Ronda, and I’m looking forward to the wedding!”
Shortly after TMZ's interview, Rousey confirmed the news herself with a too-funny Instagram pic, which shows her head photoshopped on a black tux while Browne's head is pictured on a blushing bride. The gir's got a sense of humor.
During an appearance on SNL last year, Rousey shied away from engagement rumors after rocking a large solitaire diamond ring on that finger. Her rep, sadly, said the ring was just an accessory she had tried on behind the scenes.
It's definitely engagement season for fighting champs. Earlier this month, WWE fighter turned actor John Cena got down on one knee and popped the question to longtime girlfriend and reality-show star Nikki Bella during WrestleMania 33. Right after the couple won a mixed tag-team match, Cena popped the question.
"Right before your surgery, there would be a time when you would be a little loopy and I could ask you anything I wanted," Cena started. "If you gave me an honest answer, you wouldn’t remember what you said. After a year and half, you asked me all the time. I promised I would tell you when the time is right. The time is right."
Even sweeter, Cena custom-designed Bella's ring, which is 4.5-carat round brilliant-cut Tiffany diamond sparkler.
Congrats to these cute couples!
