Where is She Now: Teressa (Ruspi) Stann

This is also a bit of "Where is HE now?"

Remember when Sasha posted this photo?

Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders
Lt. Brian Stann, recipient of the Silver Star, proposed to his girlfriend Eagles Cheerleader Teressa on the 50-yard line at Lincoln Financial Field.

The happily married couple is now expecting their first child. Lt. Stann is now a company commander at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. He's also a rising star in World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC). On June 3, in a match to be televised by Versus, the marine will take on Craig Zellner, who has a 4-1 record and whose last victory took only 31 seconds.

When asked how she felt about her husband’s competition in W.E.C. events, Teressa Stann said it did not begin to compare with the anxiety of deployment.

“I have no fear for him,” she said. “It’s like, Babe, this is something you should be doing. There’s not many things he talks about from Iraq or his past. He kind of keeps it inside. But when he’s in the cage, he can let those emotions out.”

Lt. Stann is the subject of feature articles in the The New York Times and
The Philadelphia Inquirer this week.
