Daniel Cormier breaks the news!

The former Olympian provided some insight into his newly born daughter’s birth and shared his excitement.

“I want to talk about the birth of Luna Rose Cormier. She was born last Wednesday, four and a half weeks early, and still six pounds eleven ounces. We were looking down the barrel of a twelve baby if she went full term. But man, she’s here, she’s home, she’s beautiful. She is a splitting image of my daughter, Marquita. It’s amazing to welcome my new daughter into the family, and I’m so happy and proud. I can’t get enough of her.”

The proud father detailed the concerning process of having to prepare for an early arrival. Moreover, Daniel Cormier’s excitement and joy were palpable to fight fans who were thrilled to share in the experience.

“She was born last Wednesday, we went in for a doctor’s appointment and there were somethings that Selina was having to deal with and they were like ‘you guys have to go to the delivery room now’. As concerning as it was, as nerve-wracking as it was, we were excited to welcome our baby. You start to get excited and you can’t wait. She’s here now, she’s healthy and yeah, we’re excited.”
