Brandon Moreno tied the knot with his longtime partner Shirley Moreno. The couple met each other for the first time back in 2011, when Brandon was still in high school. The couple has been together ever since, marking more than a decade of their incredible relationship. Shirley Moreno was born in Texas and grew up on the border of Texas and Tamaulipas. She can speak both English and Spanish.
“I meet her in 2011.” Moreno says, “She born in Texas. She grow up in the border with Texas and Tamaulipas. She speaks Spanish ad everything, she speaks English and everything.” Moreno said in a conversation with Brendan Schaub.Apart from that, there isn’t any information available about Shirley because she likes to keep her personal life away from all the glamour of social media. However, she did make an appearance on the Embedded episode of UFC 270 ahead of Moreno’s first title defense inside Honda Center.
The Assassin Baby and his wife Shirley have three daughters namely Maddie, Megan and Morgan. Maddie was born in 2014 and she is the eldest among three siblings. She has a keen interest in gymnastics. Maddie is a competitive gymnast and has participated in her first gymnastic competition back in 2019.
Megan who is the second daughter was born on September 27, 2018. After the birth of Megan, the family had to deal with some difficult times as she was born with health issues. However, Moreno and his wife did not reveal the information about the ailment due to personal reasons.
To make matters worse, the UFC had released the flyweight at that time. But the couple somehow managed to get over the monetary issues with the help of some money from the piñata business from Brandon’s parents. Morgan Moreno was born on September 29th, 2021 and the flyweight champion shared this joyful news on his social media page.
