WNBA star, Glory Johnson announced on Monday that she is pregnant with twins! But what does this mean for the athlete who just one month ago had a partner to raise her child with?
Over the past several months, the Tulsa Shock player and her estranged wife, Brittney Griner have had a tumultuous relationship. Following a domestic dispute in April, the two still decided to get hitched. But then, 28 days later, Griner filed to annul their marriage calling it a “mistake.”
What makes the story even more unfortunate, the Phoenix Mercury player filed documents one day after Glory announced she was with child. And now, we are learning that the baller is having two kids.
“As of today I’m 9 Weeks Pregnant with TWINS!!!!” Johnson, 24, wrote on Instagram. “#BigNews #BabyAIsBadAlready Its not a surprise for me because this is what we planned for with the IVF Cycle, though hearing their hearts beat for time was the most ASTONISHING thing I have ever heard in my ENTIRE LIFE.”
She added, “For 15yrs Double-Doubles came with hardwork and dedication…now I’ve been blessed by God to have “double doubles” for the rest of my life! Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Psalms 127:3.”
It looks like Johnson plans on raising her two children with or without Griner, who has remained mum on the big news. Johnson likely has a group of strong people around her to help raise the bundle of joys.
Earlier this month, Johnson released a statement following rumors that Griner was pressured into starting a family.
“At no stage was Brittney pressured to undertake the fertility process. In fact, throughout the entire process, Brittney was a willing participant, consenting and signing all the necessary documents that needed to be signed in order to move forward with the treatments,” she said.
‘GQ’ Cover Star LeBron James Has Hard Yet Necessary Convo W/ His Kids About Racism
It is a conversation that is difficult yet necessary: Racism.
For LeBron James, that conversation was had in depth after someone spray pained the N-word all over his Brentwood home. In a new interview with GQ magazine, the November cover star opened up about the emotional discussion with his sons and daughter.
“It’s heavy when a situation occurs either with myself or with someone in a different city, i.e., Trayvon, Mike Brown. I have to go home and talk to my 13- and 10-year-old sons, even my 2-year-old daughter, about what it means to grow up being an African-American in America,” he said about feeling the “twoness” in America.
He continued, “Because no matter how great you become in life, no matter how wealthy you become, how people worship you, or what you do, if you are an African-American man or African-American woman, you will always be that.”
James explained, “True colors will show, and it showed for me during the playoffs, where my house in Brentwood, California, one of the f*cking best neighborhoods in America, was vandalized with, you know, the N-word. And that shit puts it all back into perspective. So do I use my energy toward that? Or do I now shed a light on how I can use this negative to turn into a positive, because so many people are looking for what I’m going to say.”
That’s when he unveiled, “I had a conversation with my kids. I let them know this is what it is, this is how it’s going to be. When it’s time for y’all to fly, you’ll have to understand that. When y’all go out in public and y’all start driving or y’all start moving around, be respectful to cops, as much as you can. When you get pulled over, call your mom or dad, put it on speakerphone, and put your phone underneath the seat. But be respectful the whole time.”
Earlier this year multiple LAPD units responded to James’ California home when neighbors saw the word scrawled on the outer gate. At the time, James suggested that when it comes to racial inequality, “we have a long way to go.”
