Los Angeles Sparks forward Candace Parker and her husband, Sacramento Kings player Shelden Williams, are expecting their first child this spring. Candace — a former No. 1 draft pick and winner of MVP and Rookie of the Year honors in 2008 — will continue to work out in anticipation of the 2009 WNBA season, which begins in June. She adds,
“Shelden and I are very excited to be expanding our family. We feel blessed and look forward to becoming parents.”
Candace, 22, and Shelden, 25, were married in November.
