The Olympian first sparked rumors earlier this week when she stepped out wearing a brand new, sparkly engagement ring. Browne, 34, proposed under a waterfall during a recent trip to New Zealand. “It felt like the right place to do it,” he told TMZ.

The couple first confirmed their relationship in 2015. This past February, Rousey told Ellen DeGeneres that her love for Browne helped her to bounce back from a low point in her life after her first-ever UFC loss to Holly Holm.

“To be honest, I looked up and I saw my man, Travis, was standing there,” Rousey told DeGeneres. “And I looked up at him and I was like, ‘I need to have his babies. I need to stay alive.’ Really, that was it.”

The lovebirds may be planning a low-key wedding. Rousey says the nuptials will take place “soon.”

“It could be really easy,” the future bride told TMZ. “I don’t really want a lot. We don’t really need decorations or flowers, just somewhere to go and something to eat and some people around.”
