Two-time WNBA MVP Breanna Stewart and wife Marta Xargay are officially parents of two. Stewart announced the birth of their second child, son Theo Josep Stewart Xargay, in an Instagram post Sunday.

“Welcome to the world, little man,” Stewart wrote in the caption. “11 lbs., 12 oz. (your mama was a trooper).”

Stewart and Xargay initially announced the pregnancy on Mother’s Day in May, and Stewart revealing during the New York Liberty’s exit interviews after the WNBA Finals in mid-October that the baby boy was due the following week. Theo came into the world on Oct. 25.

The couple also have a daughter, Ruby. Since her birth in August 2021, she has become a fixture at Stewart’s games and in postgame press conferences.

While Stewart previously has played in international leagues during the offseason, she told the New York Daily News last week that she has not decided whether she will do so during this offseason. The Liberty intend to place the core designation on their star, who is a free agent this offseason, to keep her in New York.

“Once we get into a good groove of having two [kids], which I’m not sure when that group comes, we’ll figure out the rest,” Stewart said of her offseason plans.
