Though her relationship with fellow WNBA star Brittney Griner fell through the cracks, Glory Johnson has a reason — or rather, a couple — to celebrate as she just announced on Instagram that she is pregnant with twins.
Just about one month ago, on June 4, the Tulsa Shock athlete announced that she was pregnant. Her then-wife, Griner, filed to annul their 28-day marriage the day after.
Griner, 24, admitted to ESPN that she felt pressured to marry Johnson and even deemed their union a "huge mistake," saying that she personally "shouldn't have went through with it."
Adding her input days later, Johnson sang a different tune than Griner, saying that she was not pushed to do anything she didn't want to: "I am truly saddened by the recent turn of events and was not expecting to have our marriage end so abruptly," she told Us Weekly. "At no stage was Brittney pressured to undertake the fertility process. In fact, throughout the entire process, Brittney was a willing participant."
Now that the drama has seeminlgy begun to settle, here's to hoping that both mother and children are in great health.
