Welcome to the world, Ava Simone and Solei Diem
On October 12, WNBA All-Star Glory Johnson welcomed the two bundles of joy a few months premature, each weighing 1 pound, 7 ounces.
It’s certainly been an interesting year for the Tulsa Shock star. A day after she announced her pregnancy via successful IVF treatment with her egg and a donor’s sperm over the summer, fellow basketball player and wife of 28 days Brittney Griner filed for an annulment.
The annulment and Johnson’s request for spousal support from Griner were both denied — so the athletes are still technically married but are in motion to finalize the divorce.
The new mom posted a couple of snaps to Instagram over the weekend announcing the new additions to the fam. See the pics (below)!

We’re sure Miz Johnson is looking forward to getting back on the court, but will have to serve a seven-game suspension upon her return for her domestic violence arrest.
Regardless, congrats to the new momma and her babes!
