Jhenny Andrade will soon have to step away from her role as an Octagon girl for the UFC as the Brazilian model announced on Tuesday that she’s expecting a baby.

Andrade, who started working as an Octagon girl in 2013, got married to Brazilian youtuber Caio Novaes, a.k.a. “Ana Maria Brogi”, last November. She was named the best ring girl of the year three times at the World MMA Awards.

“We were gifted by God. Yes, I’m pregnant. There’s a baby Jhenny or baby Brogui coming,” Andrade posted on her social media. “We’re very happy, may it come with health and lots of love.”

Despite the pregnancy, Andrade says she won’t stop releasing YouTube videos alongside her husband and working for the UFC.

“It’s a very special moment in our lives,” Andrade wrote. “We’ll continue shooting many videos so you all have fun on YouTube, and my job in the UFC that I love very much will continue. There’s another fighter coming soon.”
