On Sunday night, Nick Young, the former Warrior’s star tweeted, “Num 3 is on the way… I knew being at home, this would happen…LOL.”
Nick Young and his longtime girlfriend, Keonna Green, are expecting their third child. Nick and Keonna, have had an on-and-off relationship since high school. They already have two children, six-month-old, Navi Young and Nick Young, Jr., who just turned seven.
Young, 33, has had more time with his family since December when the Denver Nuggets waived the point guard after just four games, reported ESPN.
The 29-year-old, Keonna Green, told Essence in an interview, “Me and Nick have lots of history. We’ve been in and out of each other’s lives and we’ve dated other people, we have still always managed to keep in touch. We share each other’s deepest, darkest secrets. We talk a lot. We have that type of friendship.”
While the announcement of baby number three may have come as a surprise to some, earlier in the month, the couple revealed that they wanted another child. On March 4, the family attended the premiere of, “Captain Marvel,” where Nick said he wanted, “one more.”
After Nick made the announcement on Twitter, he was flooded with “Congratulations” messages and even a few jokes about his ability to “sink a three.”
However, some people advised Young to take the next step with Keonna and put a ring on it.
“Can sis get a ring, tho?[sic],” wrote one Instagram user commented.
