WNBA’s Candace Parker Comes Out in Post About Wife and Baby

WNBA player Candace Parker is sharing double good news; she’s married and a mom-to-be.

Candace Parker, who plays for the Chicago Sky, came out to her Instagram followers on Tuesday to celebrate her second wedding anniversary to former teammate Anya Petrakova. In the post, she praised her wife, saying she “couldn’t be more beautiful” and “glowing.”

“Two 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,” Parker said.

Parker also announced the couple is expanding their family! The third photo of the gallery showed Petrakova’s pregnant belly.

“We’ve always dreamed of growing our family…” Parker admitted. “It’s surreal that we now have a baby on the way!”

“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!

Parker shared her 12-year-old daughter Lailaa is “pumped” to be a big sister.  The athlete then took a moment to thank Petrakova for her role in Lailaa’s life. “Thank you for always loving Lailaa as your own, being my calm, my support, my voice of reason, my laughs, my cuddles, my dance in the rain, my happy, my home.”

She ended the post by quoting Paulo Coelho’s novel, “The Alchemist”. “So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”
