UFC veteran octagon girl Arianny Celeste is pregnant with her first child.

The well-known UFC personality announced to US Weekly that she and partner Taylor King are expecting, with a Sept. 28 due date. Celeste, 34, does not know the sex of the baby yet.

“My mom for some reason asked me to take a pregnancy test,” Celeste said. “[Moms] always seem to know. I went to the store and got two tests and sure enough, I was pregnant. I couldn’t wait, so I called my boyfriend immediately even though he was working at the time.”

Celeste also shared an image of the baby bump and a message to her child on her Instagram:

I’ve been waiting for this moment my entire life! I promise to teach you about the beauty of the world and to love with no restrictions or division. In turn, you have already taught me so much about kindness, empathy, and faith. Through all of the chaos, you have helped me to stay strong and grounded. You are already loved so soooo much!! I can’t wait to meet you my baby!

Love,
Mommy
