During the month of April, UFC star Paige VanZant and her MMA fighter husband Austin Vanderford just randomly started posted nude photos on Instagram doing various things around their home and their fan base loved it.
Like anything in life, while many loved the pictures, there were others that called them out regularly for their R-rated pictures.
After a slew of nude pictures, they have since returned back to posting normal things again as well as TikTok videos.
VanZant recently spoke with MMA Fighting and explained why and her husband had been posting those pictures all of a sudden.
“Austin and I had taken a video of himself, or a picture in the gym, and I had glanced over and I was like, ‘Were you naked out there?’ And he was just wearing really short shorts. Cause he works out in really tiny shorts.
“And I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I have the best idea ever,’ and so we just kind of staged it where I was on the medicine ball and he had our double-edged bag covering his butt. Then it just kind of sparked from there because people liked them so much.”
“For one, I started wrestling since I was five, so I’ve been wearing one of those singlets my entire life so there isn’t a whole lot that it doesn’t show,” said Vanderford. “That’s one. Two, before I left Alaska to move here to the States to go to school and all that, my mom gave me one word of advice before I left. She said ‘Austin, the rest of the world isn’t like Alaska. You can’t just go outside and go pee wherever you want. You can’t show yourself off, so be careful.’ Fast forward like a year later, and I actually got a ticket for ‘scattering rubbish’ cause I had peed in a park or something. There might have been a few beers involved. I’ve just never been shy about that. I have fun. My wife sees me naked all day everyday anyway, so I thought the rest of the world deserves it, too.”
She also spoke to the people who called them out for doing it for attention.

“It’s not really a social media stunt – it’s not to get attention. I just think I want to spread the idea, we’ve been married for over a year and a half, and just to love your significant other, and have fun with them, and [show] how important it is to just make the most of the relationships that you have,” she said. “We’re really just having a really good time and trying to spread love. We’re married, so I’m not embarrassed, I’m not shy about the way we live our life at all.”
