Rousey, the former UFC women's bantamweight champion, most recently appeared for WWE at WrestleMania 35 in the first all-women's main event at that show, opposite Charlotte Flair and eventual winner Becky Lynch.

In a January interview with Ramona Shelburne, Rousey talked about the potential of having children.

"I've not kept it a secret that I would definitely want to start a family," Rousey said. "But how do you go about doing that? I love this way more than I thought that I would. So do you just keep going until you just happen to get pregnant? Or should you stop and go try and get pregnant? Or is going and trying to get pregnant putting yourself on the spot and then you're less likely to get pregnant? I've never had a baby before, I don't know these kinds of things.

"It would be kind of cool to just keep acting and then one day, 'Hey, surprise twist, I'm pregnant.' That would be fun. There's a lot of things up in the air. A lot of decisions that we've gotta make as a family. I'm trying to figure it out as I go along."

Rousey signed with WWE in January 2018 and debuted in the ring at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans that April. Rousey eventually became Raw women's champion -- a title she held until her loss to Lynch at WrestleMania 35.
