McMann, 37 years old, made the announcement via social media. She has another child from a previous marriage.

“I’ve been dying to tell the world,” McMann wrote. “The short story: Chad (Bingham) and I started trying after my last fight and that SOB knocked me up immediately. I’m 12 weeks along! The long version: I’ve had bad shoulder injuries my last 2 fights (torn labrum and rotator cuffs in BOTH shoulders). I have to take time off to get healthy no matter what.

“I’m 37 and I’m getting too close to the time of possibly not being able to conceive. We decided that it was the right time in all aspects. So, yes I will still be fighting. My body handles pregnancy very well and I am training thru the majority of it. Thanks to everyone who is happy for our happiness.”

Bingham also shared the news via social media, posting a picture of the ultrasound taken of McMann.
