The UFC star popped the question to his girlfriend in Sedona, AZ earlier in April 2017. Danny shared her happiness on social media and started,
'I'm so happy! We're engaged!'
After years of dating, Cody and his girlfriend-turned wife tied the knot in July 2017 in a secret event.
During an interview, Garbrandt was asked about the ring on his finger and he immediately started blushing. When Karyn Bryant said that everyone's going to assume him a married man, he responded saying 'yes'.
It's been a year since the lovebirds started their conjugal life and happiness and bliss have its way with them. The couple who announced they were expecting their first child in October 2017 welcomed an adorable son in March 2018.
The cute boy turned 4 months old on 17 July 2018 and the proud father immediately shared his happiness via Instagram.
Everything is going on a perfect pace between the two. Garbrandt has got his wife's face tattooed on him wearing a tiger headdress.
We all can simply imagine how's their life going on. We wish them all the very best for a prosperous life ahead.
