Oh, this is just so Ronda Rousey isn’t it? Just over a week after giving birth to her baby girl and the former UFC star is already back in the gym working on her body.

Ronda Rousey has never been shy when it comes to pouring her life out on social media. With more than 14 million followers on Instagram alone, she is always posting intimate details about her life. And she did that once again earlier this week.

Nowadays, Rousey, 34, is a professional wrestler. On September 27, the star wrestler and her husband, Travis Browne, officially announced the arrival of their first child. Rousey gave birth to daughter La’akea Makalapuaokalanipo Browne. In the caption of her most recent post, Rousey talks about how her mom went back to training right after giving birth to her and her sister.

“10 days postpartum — my mom @annmaria7gen went back to training six days after having my sister Maria, then made weight and won the judo U.S. Open 6 weeks later. When she was pregnant with me she only gained 12 pounds — and I was an 8-pound baby!”

As a matter of fact, Rousey’s mother, Annmaria Demars, would go on to win the judo U.S. Open just six weeks after giving birth.

“I’ve decided to let her keep those records,” Rousey joked.

But it is good to hear that Ronda Rousey’s body seems to be responding well post-pregnancy.

“My body seems to be recovering faster than I hoped, but I won’t really know if Po tossed a grenade on the way out till my 6 week checkup.”

Ronda Rousey Fans Show Their Support

Ronda Rousey fans have always been there for her. And they were there for her once again this week after she gave birth. She may feel like she has lost some progress as far as her muscles go, but the WWE star is taking this new chance to reshape herself.

“Since breaking both my hands and getting pregnant it feels like I lost a lifetime of muscle — it’s easy to get discouraged over all that lost progress — but if anything I’m looking forward to getting cleared to train again even more. This is an opportunity to start over and mold my body into its next phase.”

And if it is any indication, it seems like her fans couldn’t agree more.

“Perfection!” one person commented on her post. “I can’t wait for your body to surprise the sh—t out of you and then out of nowhere you start tossing people all over the place.”

Speaking of which, even Travis Browne — Rousey’s husband — couldn’t help but reply to her photo as well.

“6 weeks can’t get here soon enough!! Damn it you’re sexy!!”
