Ronda Rousey is a woman of her word! The UFC powerhouse made Lance Corporal Jarrod Haschert’s dreams come true by strolling in on his arm at the Marine Corps Ball. What a beautiful, intimidating couple!
US Marine Jarrod Haschert, 22, dug up the courage to ask his celebrity crush, Ronda Rousey, 28, to be his date at the prestigious Marine Corps Ball on December 11, and it looks like she took him up on his offer! Plenty of cute photos show the twosome having a totally fun time at the dance, Ronda looking gorgeous, and Jarrod looking dashing in his dress uniform. Click through to see pics!
This is absolutely adorable! TMZ spotted Ronda getting a send-off by boyfriend Travis Browne before she made her way to the airport to go attend the ball. “I promised I’d go,” Ronda said. “It’s an honor to be asked. Honestly, I’d probably would stay on my couch, crying and eating ice cream if he hadn’t asked me to get out of the house. So it’s probably a good thing.”
She’s kidding! But you can tell, despite her sleepiness from the early morning flight, that she was so excited for the ball. And that joy was read all over her face in the multiple Instagrams captured of her and Jarrod having a blast! Wearing a long-sleeved black gown with a low, but still demure neckline, she was the epitome of class next to Jarrod in his dress blues. He looked so handsome, and barely unable to contain his excitement that Ronda actually agreed to come to the dance with him. What a cutie!
She just had one rule for the ball, which we’re sure boyfriend Travis was happy with: “He’s gotta be a gentleman, though, I’m not a first date kind of girl. But, I dunno, we’ll see when I meet him.” So funny. At the time of her quip, she wasn’t dating Travis. So sorry Jarrod, there was definitely no funny business going down.
Jarrod asked Ronda to be his date back on August 22, 2015, in a Facebook video that went viral. Calling Ronda a “phenomenal woman,” he asked Ronda to make his “dreams come true” by attending the Marine Corp Ball as his date.
