Giannis Antetokounmpo and his girlfriend, Mariah Riddlesprigger, are expecting a second child, with Mariah declaring openly the exciting news via an Instagram post.
On her @sincerelyymariah Instagram account, Riddlesprigger posted Wednesday that “Oh and I forgot to mention baby #2 is on the way and I’m in for even more life lessons! My kids are my biggest blessing and my greatest lesson!”
The girlfriend of the NBA MVP showed gratitude not only to her husband, but for her son who has given her “purpose” in life.
“I know it’s a cliché statement, but it’s the truth! Becoming a mom has helped me realize what I am capable of; physically, mentally and emotionally. My son has taught me more about patience, perseverance and passion in these past 15 months than I have ever known,” she wrote.
“But most importantly he’s opened my eyes to my true potential. I’ve made it through sleepless nights, teething and the beginning of toddler tantrums, and at this point I feel invincible.”
On February 10, 2020, Riddlesprigger gave birth to their son, Liam Charles. Giannis and Liam were famously photographed observing the Acropolis last year, with the NBA star saying, “My goal in life is to show you the world”.
The Milwaukee Bucks player won his second NBA MVP award last year, making him the first Greek to ever receive two of the prestigious awards. Last year he also announced a new five-year contract extension with his current NBA team.
