Candace Parker is still accepting wins in life on and off the court.
The two-time WNBA champ shared that she and her wife of two years, fellow basketball player Anna Petrakova are expecting their first child together while celebrating their two-year wedding anniversary.
On her Instagram page Parker wrote, “2 years ago, I got to marry my best friend in front of our close family and friends. My heart could have exploded. I cried like a baby. To know me or you is to know our love. This journey hasn’t been easy. I am proud of us and what we have built and who we have grown to become both individually and together.
The post also went on to announce their big news. “We’ve always dreamed of growing our family…. It’s surreal that we now have a baby on the way! Lailaa is pumped to be a big sister! You couldn’t be more beautiful! Glowing, while understanding that I have to constantly love, kiss, and talk to your belly AND yes… play Jay-Z for the baby (Goose knows “Song Cry” already by heart!) I can’t wait to embark on this next chapter in life with you!”
Congratulations to the happy couple.
