Leave it to Eve Torres to mix in some self-defense techniques with a pregnancy announcement.
The three-time Divas Champion and current jiu-jitsu instructor posted what appeared to be a self-defense video on Instagram, showcasing a variety of techniques for women to employ when they're trying to turn away an unwanted hug. (Her husband, Rener Gracie, plays the role of the offender and is summarily destroyed.)

And then she puts Rener in an armbar for touching her belly.
Check out the video below, and congratulations to Eve!
VOLUME UP! Unwanted hugs are something most women dread dealing with. The most important defense is knowing that we have the right to refuse them. Here are some ways to make sure we only hug on our terms. PS make sure to watch until the end for a big announcement! @renergracie Tag a girlfriend who knows these hugs all too well. #WomenEmpowered
