Camila Oliveira, Brazil’s trailblazing UFC octagon girl, shared heartwarming news on Tuesday, revealing that she and her partner, Luis Ricardo Franco, are expecting their first child. The Brazilian model, who has graced the octagon for nearly 11 years, made her debut at UFC Sao Paulo in January 2013 at the age of 21. In addition to her role as an octagon girl, Oliveira currently hosts the Conexão UFC show on UFC Fight Pass Brazil.
In an announcement on social media, Oliveira joyfully expressed, “And everything we dreamed of came true, in my womb, we have proof of our love. We will be parents! Thank you, my God, for allowing me to experience this alongside my great love.”
Her announcement resonated with warmth and gratitude, reflecting the excitement of embracing parenthood. Jhenny Andrade, a fellow UFC octagon girl who returned to work in October 2021 after welcoming her first child, joined the celebration, extending congratulations to Oliveira in the comment section.
Oliveira’s journey as Brazil’s first UFC octagon girl has not only been a visual delight for fight fans but also a testament to her enduring presence and influence in the UFC community. As she embarks on this new chapter in her life, fans and colleagues alike eagerly anticipate the arrival of the newest member of her growing family.
