UFC’s Arianny Celeste Shares Sweet Message After Welcoming Son Into the World
Arianny Celeste is one of the most popular UFC ring girls and now, she’s a mom as well. And Celeste is so thankful her little boy picked her to be his mom.
On Instagram, just a few days after meeting her son for the first time, the new mom shared a photo of the beautiful baby boy, who was born on September 25. Celeste also revealed that she named her bundle of joy Raiden Beckham King.
Raiden was just six pounds, 15 ounces at birth. And as Celeste wrote on Instagram to her newborn son, “Thank you for choosing me to be your Mommy! I love [you] so much.”
Seven days after welcoming Raiden into the world, Celeste took to Instagram again to share a photo of the moment he laid on her chest for the first time as she and Raiden’s dad shared a kiss. “One week ago you changed our lives forever, for the better! I can’t help but think you’re the cutest…even your poopy face,” the elated mom captioned the heartwarming photo. “Just me or do all parents feel the same?”
Celeste first shared the news of her pregnancy in June. Along with a stunning photo of her cradling her growing bump, the mom wrote an open letter to her baby boy in the caption.
In the letter, she revealed that becoming a mom had been something she looked forward to her whole life.
“Dear Baby, I’ve been waiting for this moment my entire life! I promise to teach you about the beauty of the world and to love with no restrictions or division. In turn, you have already taught me so much about kindness, empathy, and most of all faith. Through all of this chaos, you have helped me to remain strong and grounded. You are already loved soooooo much!! I can’t wait to meet you, my baby! Love, Mommy”
Celeste has been a ring girl for the UFC since 2006. The same year she was named “Ring Girl of the Year” in 2006 and again in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2014.
