UFC champion Alex Volkanovski has welcomed a third child with his wife Emma and revealed to fans the unique name they gave their baby girl.
Volkanovski, 34, is the proud father of three little girls with Emma, whom he married on October 12, 2012. The couple is a high school sweetheart and has been together for about 18 years.
The Volkanovskis welcomed eldest daughter Ariana in 2015 and second child Arlie in 2017. Now the couple has welcomed a third daughter, with the featherweight king announcing the news — and her unique name — on Instagram.
“Government Volkanovski. Baby girl number 3. Long may she reign,” he posted to his 1.6 million followers.
“Mommy totally busted it today… love you baby ❤️”

Reign is a nod to Volkanovski’s incredible performance as a UFC champion. The former rugby league star has defended his title five times since winning it against Max Holloway in 2019.
He also never lost when he fought at 145 pounds.
Emma has followed her husband around the world to support him in his dominating UFC campaign, but was absent due to his win over Yair Rodriguez in July as she was heavily pregnant with Reign.
Volkanovski awaits confirmation for his next fight, with the featherweight champion keen to avenge his defeat to Islam Makhachev in Perth earlier this year, where he challenged for the lightweight title.
