Candace Parker and his wife Anna Petrakova have a baby boy

Candace Parker and his wife Anna Petrakova welcomed another bundle of joy.

The WNBA star announced on Instagram Thursday that she and Petrakova welcomed their son, Airr, on Feb. 11.

“We are in absolute love and totally appreciate Goose choosing us,” she captioned the post. “Welcome to the SON family.”

Parker is already the mother of a 12-year-old daughter, Lailaa, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Shelden Williams.

The Chicago Sky star shared a slideshow of photos Thursday featuring her with Lailaa, Petrakova and baby Airr.

Parker had announced publicly on Instagram in December that she and his wife were expecting a baby. It was also apparently the first time the basketball star shared with the public that the two tied the knot in 2019.

“[Two] years ago i married my best friend in front of our close family and friends. My heart could have exploded. I cried like a baby… To know me or to know you is to know our love,” she wrote at the time, adding a note thanking Petrakova for “always loving Lailaa as your own.”

Petrakova shared a sweet tribute to Parker and Lailaa on Valentine’s Day, sharing a video on Instagram of Parker singing along to Boyz II Men’s hit song “On Bended Knee.”

“Happy V-Day to my rock, my baby mama, my lead singer (preferably 90’s and 00’s rnb), my ride-or-die (as long as there’s coffee and wine), my gossip in the shower , my only- from a good wife!” she wrote in the caption of the post.

She also dedicated a note to Lailaa, calling the child her “sweet, big-hearted, clumsy, dancing, and twirling bonus girl through life!”
