New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson is going to be a father! His girlfriend, Ahkeema, revealed on social media this week that she is pregnant with a baby girl.
Ahkeema shared a photo of herself on Instagram with a baby bump, along with the caption, “Baby girl, we comin’ in November.”
Williamson has not yet commented on the pregnancy news.
The couple has been dating for several years and has been very private about their relationship. However, they have been spotted together at several public events, including the NBA All-Star Game in 2022.
Williamson, 22, is a former Duke University basketball player who was drafted by the Pelicans with the first overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. He has quickly become one of the most popular players in the league and is considered to be one of the best young players in the game.
The pregnancy news is a happy development for Williamson and Ahkeema. They are both very young and have their whole lives ahead of them. It will be interesting to see how they handle the challenges of parenthood while also trying to maintain their careers.
Reactions to the Pregnancy News
The news of Williamson’s pregnancy has been met with mixed reactions from fans and the media. Some have congratulated the couple and wished them well, while others have expressed concern about how the pregnancy will affect Williamson’s career.
Stephen A. Smith, a sports analyst for ESPN, was one of the most vocal critics of Williamson. He called the pregnancy “a distraction” and said that it could “jeopardize” Williamson’s career.
However, others have defended Williamson and said that he is still young and has plenty of time to focus on his career. They also pointed out that many other NBA players have had children while still playing at a high level.
Only time will tell how the pregnancy will affect Williamson’s career. However, one thing is for sure: he is now a father and has a new responsibility to take care of.
