“Shelden and I are very excited to be expanding our family,” said Parker, 22. “We feel blessed and look forward to becoming parents.”

Parker, who was the No. 1 pick by the Sparks from the University of Tennessee, also says that she would be working towards the new season which starts in June this year. Sparks General Manager Penny Toler is hopeful that the lady would return before the season ends, although no due date has been confirmed.

“All in all,” Toler said, “things line up well for us. . . . We don’t start practice until May 17. And I preface this by assuming everything goes totally smoothly, Candace could return as early as mid-June.”

Candace and Shelden got married in November last year.

    I think she should have waited. Until WNBA season was over and had time and she is risking the team because you cant play with a big stomach.
