WNBA's Candace Parker and Wife Anna Petrakova Welcome Baby Boy

Candace Parker’s newest team member has made their debut.

The Las Vegas Aces power forward, 38, has welcomed her third baby and second with wife Anna Petrakova. The couple also shares toddler Airr Larry, 2, and Parker is also mom to daughter Lailaa, 14.

“Hartt Summitt Petrakov Parker❤️ May 21, 2024 Our Starting lineup is complete,” shared Parker at the start of her Instagram announcement on Monday, June 10.

“We are so in love and grateful for our little brother. Zone defense is ummm interesting, but we are managing. Goose is ummm adjusting 🤣 but he’s doing better with his role as a vet🤣😂😂😂 (Mama is a rockstar and we love her soooo much) Thank you @aprilbellephotos for always capturing our fam!,” the post continued.

The post was filled with adorable family photos and close-ups of the little one, whose name appears to be a special tribute to late women’s basketball coach, Pat Summitt.

Parker previously reflected on Summitt’s impact on her life in a piece written for Sports Illustrated in 2009.

“I sometimes did not understand her logic, but now that I am out in the real world, I see that there was a method to her madness. Everything she did was to make me a better individual,” wrote Parker.

Parker and her wife first shared their exciting baby news in December, with Petrakova’s baby bump on display in the family photos, where she and Parker stand on a basketball court and hold a onesie together as they laugh. Lailaa also laughed beside them with a basketball in her hands as the three watched the toddler run towards the camera.

“Parker starting 5 loading! Mama and Mommy are switching from man-2-man to zone defense this spring!” the caption read, playing on basketball strategy.

“After four years in the game we are focused on building our roster. We know this rookie will add to our depth chart and contribute versatility to our team. The rookie will join our current roster consisting of a shooter, point forward, rebounder, and little Tikes rim attacker!” the adorable announcement read.
