The couple announced the news on Saturday (April 13) via Instagram, sharing a photo of them holding hands next to an ultrasound image of their baby. The caption on the post reads, “Can’t believe we’re less than three months away from meeting our favorite human being🤍 #BabyGrinerComingSoon #July2024”. See the post below.

This will be Griner’s third child. In 2015, she welcomed twin girls with her ex-wife, Glory Johnson. After they separated,  Griner said she had no responsibility to the twins, Ice Cream Convos reports. She was ultimately ordered to pay child support but it’s unclear if the WNBA star is actively involved in their lives.

Brittney and Cherelle tied the knot in June 2019.

*(CNN) — LSU basketball star Angel Reese has announced that she is leaving school for the WNBA. Reese posted the announcement Wednesday on Instagram, and her decision was also detailed in a story in Vogue.

LSU lost to Iowa in the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament Monday, a rematch of last year’s national championship game. ESPN, the network that aired Monday’s game, announced Tuesday that it was the most-watched women’s college basketball game in history.

“I’ve done everything I wanted to in college,” Reese said in the Vogue story. “I’ve won a national championship, I’ve gotten [Southeastern Conference] Player of the Year, I’ve been an All-American. My ultimate goal is to be a pro – and to be one of the greatest basketball players to play, ever. I feel like I’m ready.”

The WNBA draft takes place on April 15. Reese, a 6-foot-3-inch forward, is projected in mock drafts to be a top-10 pick.

*(CNN) — The women’s NCAA basketball tournament has been full of star power, with Iowa’s Caitlin Clark front and center. But there wasn’t a team as loaded as Dawn Staley‘s South Carolina.

For the third time, the Gamecocks are national champions, defeating Iowa 87-75, completing a perfect 38-0 season, and preventing Clark from having the perfect end to her college career.

The win also avenges South Carolina’s loss to Iowa in last year’s Final Four, the team’s only loss that season. The Gamecocks are now 109-3 in the last three seasons.

South Carolina is now 3-0 in national championship games. The other titles came in 2017 and 2022, all under head coach Dawn Staley.

For the second year in a row, Iowa and Clark have come up short in the national championship game, losing to LSU a year ago. 

This was Clark’s final game in an Iowa uniform before heading to the WNBA. She’s expected to be the top pick in the draft April 15.

On Sunday at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio, the best team beat the team that had the best player. Clark, despite all the accolades she’s received, will leave for the WNBA as a two-time national runner-up.
