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.
