Reigning ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon "The Truth" Vera is now a dad!
The Filipino-American MMA star and his wife Jessica welcomed son Atreyu Timothy to the world last July 22nd.
So, we were finishing up a game of @mobilelegendsgame then @n_e_n_j_a got up and said I have to pee. . Then BOOM...!!!!!!! Water is leaking, we go to the ER (laughing and joking the whole way), get there and the Awesome Nurses start doing their thing and tell us okay we’re gonna admit you now. ????. . Us: Wait... he’s not due till Aug 5th. Nurses: Well (to Nenja) you’re already 2cm now so he’s coming now. . Doctor Swena comes in EVERYTHING goes as perfect as anyone could ever hope for and more. Now.... Welcome to the world Atreyu Timothy Vera!!!!!! . Nenja is my Wonder Woman I love you so so very much. Thank you for taking and making this journey happen Lil mamma ???????????? *New found respect for women!!! ???????????? . Thank you all the way from the beginning of our journey Dr @totoabalajon, Thank you Dr @richiemendiola @ The #katoreprobiotechcenter . Love you all!!!!! I’ll post an interview I did w Kuya @deakinitis yesterday about how it all hit me. .
On his Instagram post, Vera shared that their son's birth came two weeks before the expected due date.
Friends and fellow fighters took to the post's comments section to congratulate the new parents.
Earlier this year, Vera spoke about how he's been preparing for fatherhood and how excited he is to finally meet his son.
“What I’m most looking forward to is hanging out with my son and seeing if I can help mold him into a better man than I could ever think of becoming,” Vera stated.
The reigning ONE heavyweight king was originally scheduled to defend his title in Manila last May against top contender Arjan Bhullar, but the COVID-19 pandemic has since put those plans on hold.
For now, "The Truth" can sit back and enjoy fatherhood.
Congratulations to Brandon and Jessica!
