Miesha Tate Gives Birth To Baby Daughter After 67 Hours Of Labor

Retired UFC star Miesha Tate proved herself to be a tough customer inside the Octagon and that’s just as well as she’s just had to endure no less than 67 hours of labor in order to welcome her new baby daughter Amaia into the world.

A friend of the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion posted the good news on social media earlier today, along with a photo of Tate and her new bundle of joy.

“Around midnight last night, I texted @mieshatate and told her that she had 24 hours to produce my birthday twin. And she did. Best birthday present ever! 😂

“I’m so proud of my incredible friend. After 67 hours of labor, she gave birth to a perfect, tiny human. I am so proud of her, to be able to call her one of my best friends, and to share a birthday with this little piece of magic named Amaia. So many congratulations to @mieshatate and @johnnyboymma !

“Thank you for the messages and texts. It’s been an especially taxing week for me, but somehow you all made it better. 💕

“This special occasion was too good to keep to myself, but it’s back to radio silence for me.”
