Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, a star for the Oklahoma City Thunder, will soon be a multi-title winner!
The Canadian athlete, who is 25 years old, announced Sunday on Instagram that he and his partner Hailey Summers are expecting their first child.
Embracing Summers’ growing baby bump, the NBA player closed his eyes and smiled broadly in a touching shot that was posted online. With a smile on her face and a pair of black leggings and a long-sleeved crop top, the expectant woman flaunted her expanding tummy for the camera.
The joyous news was not detailed in the announcement, but Gilgeous-Alexander did write, “2024…?️” in the caption.
The reply from fellow basketball player Chet Holmgren was “2 2.0 .” The athlete Nerlens Noel sent the following message: “Yessa Shai Dai!.” The couple has reportedly been dating for six years, according to ClutchPoints, and they are now expecting a child. Summers is just as gifted an athlete as Gilgeous-Alexander.
She briefly mentions her stint on the soccer team at the University of Albany in one of her Instagram postings.
“5 years later.. thank you soccer, for everything, but most importantly, thank you for bringing me the best of friends I could ask for ️ #2 out,” she captioned her 2021 image.
Gilgeous-Alexander has been keeping herself occupied as a model for Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS brand in addition to her basketball career. In October, the brand’s debut announcement included him, Brazilian soccer player Neymar Jr., and San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa as models for the menswear collection.
The corporation reportedly chose the sportsmen for the ad campaign after considering their stories, the extent to which they embrace their individuality, and their capacity to forge connections with fans outside of the sports world.
The role of friends and family in supporting Gilgeous-Alexander with his mentаl health was discussed in a recent interview with Kardashian, 43, for Interview magazine.
“A lot of it I do with friends and family, just because they give me a getaway from the spotlight, the NBA life,” added the player. “A lot of them are back home and live everyday lives, so I get to step away from all the craziness that this life brings when I’m with them.”
