Plot twist!

Everyone’s buzzing over WNBA superstar Candace Parker announcing that she and proud partner Anna Petrakova are expecting a baby.

In a growing trend among celebs, Parker made the unexpected reveal two years into her marriage with the Russian baller without ever coming out to the public.

“Happy Anniversary Моя жена! 2 years ago, I got to marry my best friend in front of our close family and friends. My heart could have exploded. I cried like a baby….” she captioned a carousel of photos on Instagram.

“To know me or you is to know our love. This journey hasn’t been easy. I am proud of us and what we have built and who we have grown to become both individually and together.”

She also posted a heartfelt message to her wife and expressed her excitement over them expecting their first baby as a couple while shouting out her daughter Lailaa, 12, who’s “pumped to be a big sister.”

“We’ve always dreamed of growing our family….it’s surreal that we now have a baby on the way! Lailaa is pumped to be a big sister! You couldn’t be more beautiful! Glowing, while understanding that I have to constantly love, kiss, and talk to your belly AND yes… play Jay-Z for the baby (Goose knows “Song Cry” already by heart😜 !) I can’t wait to embark on this next chapter in life with you!”

The Chicago Sky captain/WNBA Champion was previously married to her daughter’s father, former NBA baller Shelden Williams who she reportedly paid $400K in alimony.

The couple wed in 2008 and divorced in 2016 citing “irreconcilable differences.”
