A huge congratulations go out to Los Angeles Laker Lonzo Ball.
He is reportedly expecting his first child with high school sweetheart Denise Garcia.
TMZ Sports ‘confirmed’ Wednesday that the 20-year-old NBA point guard’s girlfriend is four months along.
Garcia shared a cryptic tweet on Tuesday reading: ‘I’ve never been so overwhelmed.’
The 6ft6in athlete has been dating his brunette girlfriend since they attended Chino Hills High.
She also works for his father LaVar’s Big Baller Brand.
Ball will miss his 12th straight game this Thursday against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to sustaining a sprained left medial collateral ligament (MCL).
‘I can’t take off like full sprints, and I can’t jump either,’ Lonzo said in Wednesday’s practice – according to NBA.com.
‘When I can do those things, that’s when hopefully I can get on the court.’
The family are now starring in their own 13-episode reality webseries called ‘Ball in the Family’, which streams Sundays on Facebook.
Lonzo’s 19-year-old brother LiAngelo – now playing with Lithuania’s Vytautas Prienai–Birštonas – was famously suspended from UCLA after being arrested for shoplifting Louis Vuitton goods in China.
