That’s no basketball Mrs. LeBron James has tucked under her shirt. The wife of the NBA superstar, Savannah Brinson, is pregnant with the couple’s third child!


Us Weekly confirms the news, which we’ve been hearing whispers about for months. Way back in February rumors first flew about Savannah expecting, after she appeared with what appeared to be sporting a baby bump during LeBron’s showing at the NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans.

Then, just a couple weeks back, the president of the Miami Heat, Pat Riley, seemed to spill the beans there was a baby on board, even revealing that it’ll be a “little baby girl” joining the family. Guess President Pat was right about the baby (though no word yet if he got the sex right, too). Unfortunately for Pat and the rest of the Heat, it’s unlikely LeBron will stick around Miami long enough to properly celebrate.

Without getting all bogged down with sports gobbledygook, we’ll simply refresh your memory that LeBron made waves in earlier this summer by announcing he’s now a free agent. That means he’s up for grabs professionally (and looking at a bigger paycheck than we can imagine). And those extra zeroes are nothing but good news for Savannah, their sons Lebron James, Jr. and Bryce Maximus, and the little LeBron-to-be!
