Since its release in 2000, Love and Basketball is just one of those Black love movies that always seems to score big points with audiences (hello, Netflix and chill). Everyone adores Monica and Q's love!

If you’re a fan of the film starring Sanaa Lathan and Omar Epps, you're familiar with its iconic movie poster and most memorable scenes. Wanting to pay tribute to the 17-year-old movie, one expectant couple, Tiffy and Brian, decided to showcase their baby bump in a very Love & Basketball kind of way! 

Going viral, the couple recreated the movie scenes with a maternity shoot they named “Love 🏀 and Baby” — and it completely landed a slam dunk on our hearts!

Where did the inspiration come from? Apparently, they not only love the movie but they both share a love for the game. Take a look at a few more photos taken by photographer, Nelson Cosey
