Congratulations to my favorite WNBA star Candace Parker, and her husband Shelden Williams. Candace gave birth to a little baby girl this morning! The new bundle of joy weighs 7 pounds, 6 ounces and was 20 inches long.

“Shelden and I are thrilled. This is such a life changing moment for us, we feel blessed to have a healthy and beautiful baby girl.”

The baby’s name has not yet been revealed because the new parents wanted to share those details with family first.

Candace plans to get back on the basketball court as soon as possible, but her Dr. will have to clear her first. While the Sparks’ training camp starts Sunday, the 2009 WNBA season doesn’t get underway until June 6.
