Ronda and Travis Married In 2017
Travis and Ronda started dating sometime in 2015. After roughly two years of dating they got engaged in April 2017. Just a few short months later, the two got married in August 2017 in Hawaii. Before their nuptials, Ronda got very candid about her lack of wedding planning. “I don’t know what goes into planning a wedding,” she said. “It could be really easy because I don’t really want a lot. We don’t really need decorations or flowers; just somewhere to go, something to eat, and some people around.”
Ronda and Travis share one daughter together
In an Instagram announcement Ronda shared on September 27, 2021, it was revealed she and Travis became parents to their first child together! She did not reveal her daughter’s face, but showed off her tiny hand as she snuggled close to her mom’s chest. In the picture’s caption, Ronda also debuted her and Travis’s baby girl’s name: La’akea Makalapuaokalanipō Browne.
La’akea’s birth came five months after Ronda announced her pregnancy. “I’m four months pregnant? What? You didn’t even know the last four months!” she said in a YouTube video on April 21. “Yeah, I’ve been pregnant since January, so four months. Woo! Baby bump! I can’t hide it anymore, so it’s time to show it off.”
In addition to La’akea, Travis is the father of two sons from his first marriage. Their names are Kaleo and Keawe and although their ages haven’t been confirmed, they appear to be in their teenage years based off of a photo shared to Ronda’s Instagram page in 2020.
Travis Has Been Married Before
Travis has been married twice before. His first marriage was to Erin Browne, with whom he shares his two sons, from 2001-2009. From 2015-2016, he was married to fitness model Jenna Renee Webb, and was technically still married to her when he started dating Ronda. Travis and his then-estranged wife were completely separated and were in the process of filing for divorce when he was dating Ronda.
Travis Was Accused Of Domestic Violence In 2015
Travis’ ex-wife, Jenna, claimed that the reason the pair split was because Travis assaulted her physically as well as abused her mentally and emotionally. Jenna even posted photos of massive bruises on her body via Instagram. Ronda even addressed the allegations in 2015. “It’s hard, it’s really hard. I’m very anti-domestic violence,” Ronda revealed to ESPN.
“But I know that he didn’t do anything. Now I’m put in a situation where I’m finally happy with somebody that respects me and cares about me, and I’m like, ‘What do I do?’ … Why can’t [people] have some confidence or trust in me that I would make a good decision and be with a good man regardless of how it looks.” Travis was suspended by the UFC but was reinstated when their independent investigation found “inconclusive evidence” of any assault.
Travis is an animal lover
Travis often shares photos of different animals, including dogs and chickens, to his Instagram and adds loving captions about the importance of them. He often updates his followers about the animals and how they help out on the ranch he runs. He also shares several photos and videos of him and his family happily riding horses.
