If “moving in silence” was a person, it would be WNBA baller Candace Parker. She was trending today after revealing that she and her wife, Russian basketball player Anna Petrakova, are expecting a baby! Many were surprised to find out that Candace was married. The Chicago Sky player shared a photo next to her daughter Lailaa and Anna with a cute baby bump on the gram.
Candace wrote a long message as the couple celebrated their second wedding anniversary. “Happy anniversary Моя жена! 2 years ago I got married to my best friend in front of our close friends and family. My heart could have exploded. I cried like a baby …. To know me or you is to know our love. This journey was not easy. I’m proud of ourselves and what we’ve built and grown to be both individually and collectively, ”wrote Candace. She also thanked Anna for always loving 12 year old Lailaa like her own for being her calm, support, voice of reason and more.
Candace has a lot to thank outside of her second child. As we previously reported, the 35-year-old won her second WNBA title in her first season with Chicago Sky in October. It was also Sky’s first championship. Candace previously played 13 seasons of her career in Los Angeles for the Los Angeles Sparks and won a title in 2016.
Candace and her daughter Lailaa are reportedly very close. Lailaa was the reason Candace decided to join the Sky. Not many details have been released about the baby’s gender yet, but we’ll keep you updated!
