Minnesota Lynx star Napheesa Collier and husband Alex Bazzell have welcomed a baby girl, the couple announced Thursday.

Mila Sarah Bazzell was born Wednesday, weighing in at eight pounds, 14 ounces.

“Her & momma are both doing great & we’re excited to start this next phase of our lives together,” Bazzell wrote on Twitter.

Collier first announced her pregnancy in November, revealing that she would miss the start of the 2022 WNBA season. The 25-year-old has said she hopes to return at some point during the team’s campaign, which marks Sylvia Fowles’ last with Minnesota.

In early May, Collier signed a multi-year contract extension with the Lynx, keeping her in Minnesota for the foreseeable future.

Without Collier, the Lynx have gotten off to a slow start, posting a 2-6 record to kick off the season.
