Candace Parker and wife Anya Petrakova welcomed son Airr Larry Petrakov Parker into the world last Friday, with the two-time WNBA champion announcing the news on Instagram a week later.

“Airr Larry Petrakov Parker 2-11-22,” read the post, “We are in absolute love and utter appreciation that Goose chose us. Welcome to the fam son.”

Parker first revealed she and Petrakova were expecting a child back in December via social media post.

The newborn joins Parker, Petrakova and Lailaa Nicole Williams, Parker’s child from a previous relationship.
