Amanda Nunes has found more purpose and semblance in the new role as a parent. Her wife Nina bore a daughter during September 2020 and her name is Reagan. As a parent, Amanda now has a chance to build memories with her little one and surely, her identity is more than that of a UFC fighter. The UFC fighter said that she’d like her daughter to remember who she is when she grows up and talked at length about forging this identity as a parent.
To raise my hand with Raegan with me inside the cage is what I will look for from now on. She's my biggest motivation. When she grows up, I can show her she was there with me and for me, that is going to be very importa. That moment was unbelievable for sure. Raegan makes everything better; she makes every moment magical." It's about the memories. Backstage, in training, in the cage - I have a lot of moments I picture and she is there with me.
