Damian Lillard and Fiancée Kay’La Hanson Expecting Not One, But Two Babies
We were all pretty bummed about Damian Lillard leaving the NBA bubble after his knee injury, but there’s a silver lining. The Portland Trail Blazers star announced that he and fiancée Kay’La Hanson are expecting twins on his Instagram.
“I’m a DADDY DADDY now 😂😂😂… happy for another boy but this girl gone hit different,” Lillard captioned the post, along with a picture of him, his wife-to-be, and their 2-year-old son Damian Jr. all holding out two peas in a pod.
Lillard was unanimously voted the 2012 NBA Rookie of the Year. He has received five NBA All-Star selections and is one of two players in Trail Blazers franchise history, along with Clyde Drexler, to become a five-time All-Star.
He can add proud dad of twins to his list of accomplishments soon. The couple is expecting a pair of fraternal twins, a boy and a girl.
The Blazers congratulated their treasured point guard on Twitter.https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
“Congratulations to @Dame_Lillard & his fiancée Kay’La, who announced they are having twins!”
In February during the NBA All-Star weekend at a private party, Lillard proposed to his longtime girlfriend who he’d been dating since college at Weber State.
Just days before announcing the pregnancy news, the unanimously voted the Most Valuable Bubble Player left the NBA campus in Orlando and returned to Portland for further examination of his right knee.
Although we’re missing his plays, at least he’ll get to spend time with his family during this very exciting time.
“Dislocated finger… Lateral knee sprain … but this is good for the soul … missed my baby boy,” the proud father shared on Instagram. This little MVP looks overjoyed to be spending time with his dad.
The team’s season ended with a 131-122 Game 5 loss to the Lakers.
Amid a lot of bad news lately in the sports world, it’s great to see that good things are still happening. We’re excited for this Blazer and his growing family.
