MMA fighter discovers she won title fight while 12 weeks PREGNANT
Kinberly Novaes, 24, from Brazil (in red top), said her unborn baby is fine after the brutal fight against Renata Baldan (left) in May, during which Novaes was hit repeatedly in the stomach (inset).
She only discovered she was carrying a baby while preparing for her next fight, which was due to take place on August 21. She went to a doctor after struggling to lose weight and was told she was six months pregnant. After working out the timeline in her head, she realized she must have been three months pregnant during her title fight.
