WNBA’s Glory Johnson is expecting twins after Brittney Griner breakup



WNBA star Glory Johnson of the Tulsa Shock announced today that she is expecting twins. 

She posted a photo of her ultrasound showing the two embryos on her Instagram page today with the caption:


“It’s 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. For 15 years 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 #IAmBlessedToHaveThemWithMe #LifeIsAboutToGetInteresting #TWINS”

Johnson recently split with longtime girlfriend Brittney Griner with whom she was briefly married before Griner filed for an annulment.


 Before the rocky relationship ended with the Phoenix Mercury star player, the two announced together they were expecting a child. 

Since then, Griner disclaimed knowing anything about the pregnancy in her court documents requesting the annulment. 

Johnson later told her side of the story.

“I am truly really saddened by the recent turn of events and was not expecting to have our marriage end so abruptly,” she told Us Weekly on June 12. “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.”

Johnson recently told the Associated Press that she has moved on  

“I am ready to begin focusing on my health, pregnancy, and am going to remain in Tulsa to continue to build my relationship with the Tulsa Shock organization, and my teammates,” she said.

Looks like it for sure though her caption today suggests again that it was a joint decision for Johnson to have two embryos implanted. 

Congrats to her.
