It's been over two years still the MMA fighters keep on sharing a glimpse of their wedding on his official IG.

In November 2019, Matt surprised his fan followers with news of their baby on the way. He shared a picture of a ultrasound photo and wrote, "My baby is 28 weeks along today. She’s about the size of a small eggplant, and growing rapidly. She’s currently checking in just a little over 2lbs. She had her hands up high (unlike her daddy) so we weren’t able to get a clear shot of her sweet face. Shout out to Penelope’s momma for being a stone-cold fox!"
