The couple revealed their July pregnancy on Instagram on April 13.

“Can’t believe we’re less than three months away from meeting our favorite human being,” the post stated, using #BabyGrinerComingSoon and #July2024.

Brittney and Cherelle Griner married in June 2019 after meeting at Baylor University.

After being selected in 2013, Brittney Griner joined the Phoenix Mercury.

Brittney Griner was detained in Russia in February 2022 when Moscow airport customs authorities detected cannabis-oil vape cartridges in her luggage. She was tried for drug possession and claims she packed them accidentally. She began her nine-year term in a Russian correctional camp in November 2022.
In exchange for a Russian arms trader, President Joe Biden released her on December 8, 2022.

At a news conference that day, Cherelle Griner declared, “Today my family is whole. As you know, many families are incomplete.”

Brittney Griner played basketball again in May 2023.

Her biography “Coming Home” on her time in Russia will be released on May 7.

“Ultimately, the book is also a story of how my family, my faith, and the support of millions who rallied for my rescue helped me endure a nightmare,” the basketball player said on Instagram Feb. 6.
