Chelsea Gray and her wife, Tipesa Gray, dropped a very special announcement on Halloween.

The couple took to Instagram to share that they are awaiting their first bundle of joy.

The 31-year-old Las Vegas Aces guard stood smiling behind her spouse, Tipesa, who placed her hands on her growing belly. As further confirmation that they are expecting, Chelsea held up a white onesie that read, "A Baby is Brewing."

Chelsea's followers flooded the comments section with well wishes, such as teammate Candace Parker who wrote, "We can't waittttt❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🔥🔥," to A'ja Wilson adding, "🫶🏽🫶🏽🫶🏽."

The basketballer has much to be happy about these days, having recently celebrated her team's back-to-back WNBA championships, after defeating the New York Liberty 70-69 on October 18.

Chelsea contributed to the Aces' victory by scoring 20 points in Game 1 and 11 assists in Game 2, according to ClutchPoints. On Wednesday, she continued to express her gratitude for the win. "Couldn't take our joy," Chelsea wrote in an Instagram Story. It was a repost of Aces' Sydney Colson sharing a carousel of the team's celebrations.

Tipesa is also a basketball enthusiast. Having previously played as a forward for the California State University Long Beach team, she garnered recognition with second-team All-Big West honors, boasting an average of 12.7 points per game. Presently, Tipesa holds the position of director of operations for the Long Beach State women's basketball program, maintaining a close connection to the sport.

They first met at a Long Beach State open gym while Chelsea attended Duke. They kept in touch as their relationship blossomed. The couple announced their engagement on June 27, 2018. They tied the knot on November 2, 2019, in a ceremony attended by notable WNBA figures such as Ify Ibekwe, Jantel Lavender, and Candace Parker.

While we don’t know the exact due date of Chelsea and her partner’s baby, it seems they could be born in time to see Chelsea and the Aces go for the three-peat. This is exciting news for the couple and their fans!
